Our topic this term is SUPERHEROES!

Check out our Topic Map to see what exciting things we'll be learning in each subject.

Police Visit!

Because we are learning about Superheroes, we had a visit from our local superheroes - the police! Four officers from the Chelmsford and Maldon Community Policing Team came in and told us all about their special equipment and what sort of things they do to keep us safe. We got to look inside the police car, saw the flashing lights on top and even heard the siren! It was an AMAZING afternoon and we all learnt a lot!

COOL Time

 

Year 1 begins with plenty of COOL Time in our wonderful outdoor and sheltered areas. This is where we Continue Our Own Learning through play-based activities. Children are naturally motivated to play and we capture this motivation in developmentally appropriate challenges. This enables children to explore, experiment, discover and solve problems in playful and imaginative ways. Research tells us that play-based learning sets children up for success at school and beyond!

Growth Mindset

In Year 1 we have a Growth Mindset which means we are resilient, we are hardworking and we are happy learners! Our mascots, Hardworking Hare and Clever Cat, remind us that our thinking has a huge impact on our learning. Clever Cat thinks he can do things because he’s clever, but if he can’t do something he gives up and he really doesn’t like making mistakes. Whereas Hardworking Hare knows that hard work helps him learn and make progress. He knows that mistakes are a part of learning and he never gives up! In Year 1 we are learning to think like Hardworking Hare!
