Year 1

At Tees Valley Education, we view our broad and balanced curriculum as the totality of every planned experience and interaction that our children will encounter.  It saturates and informs every aspect of our practice, provision and culture. We build the supporting frameworks around the children, which will allow them to develop the characteristics that ensure they are ready to learn, allowing them to become independent, confident and successful learners, preparing them well for the next step in their education journey.

Y1 Teacher: Miss Bass

Welcome to our Year 1 class page. We have had an amazing start to the year so far, all the children have been working super hard and have started to settle into the routine and expectations of year 1. Myself (Miss Bass) and Miss Burton (Learning Assistant) are really excited to help each child grow and flourish throughout this academic year.  

We regularly feature the learning activities from each class on our weekly blog, so please have a look at this and the academy gallery, together with posts on our social media. Links to all of these pages can be found under the Celebrating Dormanstown tab.

We have been very busy so far this half term in year 1. We have learnt about the 7 continents and 5 oceans in geography. We learnt the ‘seven continents song’. Click and play the song below and see if your child can sing along.

We have also ben writing instructions on how to get the Tiger Who Came to Tea to come for his tea. We decided to make our own jam sandwiches to help us learn exactly how to make them. This helped us to write clear and specific instructions.
