All about...

Year 1

Life in Year 1

What an incredible time the children have in Year 1! It is the year that the children really start exploring the wider world around them. We visit the local shops, find out about different types of local houses and we even go on the children’s first ever school coach trip to the Weald and Downland Museum. Year 1 is a big step for the children as we ask them to take more responsibility for themselves and to be more independent.  They are introduced to whole class lessons and more directed learning early on in the year so it is a challenge but every year we are amazed at the incredible progress that the children make and it truly sets them up for a wonderful future at Glebe. Year 1 really takes the children on an incredible journey and we see it as a privilege that we are there to share that with them.

Spring Term Topic 2019: Home Sweet Home

This term’s topic is Home Sweet Home!

We are very pleased to confirm that we will be visiting the Weald and Downland Museum, near Chichester, on Wednesday 6th March to learn about what houses were like in the past.   Further details will be sent out closer to the time.

As part of our topic, we will be looking at our local area and making some simple maps of our journeys to school. Please see our topic overview below for further information. 

As we value your involvement and interest in your child’s learning, we would like to give you the opportunity to suggest any ideas for activities, events, visitors or places to visit that we could include in this topic so please either contact our school office with any ideas or just catch one of the team on the playground after school.
