Year 1 (Mrs Rocks, Miss. Hickling)

Welcome back to the Year 1 page! In Year 1 we have two classes. Our class teachers are Mrs Rocks and Miss Hickling. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Marshall and Miss Johnson. We hope you enjoy looking at our class page, seeing what we are learning about this term and finding some useful website links too.


Our first topic will be based upon the people who help us in the local community. We will be learning about the roles of these professionals and how they help us. The children will be looking at their clothing and uniforms alongside the different tools they use to support their job roles. There will be visits from a range of local people who help in a variety of roles. This will include the emergency services alongside the many talented people within the local area. Later in the term the children will learn about the famous people and events which have involved people who help us. They will look at the role of Florence Nightingale and how she improved the conditions in hospitals as a dedicated nurse. The role of firefighters will be explored by investigating the Great Fire of London and the changes in equipment used over time. The children will have the opportunity to think about future roles they would like to follow by looking at a range of job roles.
