Year 1

Welcome to Class 1P and Class 1S

 Miss Bradshaw

This year I am looking forward to...

Exploring how times have changes in our local area for our families and looking at these changes on a timeline. I am also looking forward to practising our DT skills and using these to create a final product that matches our detailed designs. Furthermore, I am keen to enthuse the pupils into our Art project to create learners that are excited and creative. I want to create a learning environment in which the learning is embedded and remembered forever!


My top tip for learning is...

To not be scared to take ownership of your own learning process and to challenge yourselves to become true independent learners.

Mrs Logan

This year I am looking forward to...

Exploring colour theory in Art during the Spring term. I'm excited to explore the artwork and life of Sir Terry Frost, practise line, colour and painting skills and create a collaborative piece of artwork which displays the knowledge and skills we have learned.


My top tip for learning is...

Never be afraid to try new things and explore new talents and interests. You never know what you might discover.

Everyone a Mayflower Reader | Hear Me Become A Reader

There is nothing quite like playing back something that you have rehearsed or performed and just... listening: feeling pride in your successes; noticing the areas for improvement and acting on them. This is what real learning is all about!

'Hear Me Become A Reader' is our way of enabling pupils to journal their reading journey; giving pupils ownership over their development within the subject. With more and more pupils uploading audio readings on a weekly basis, we wanted to make this process more interactive and even easier than ever.

With this in mind, 'Hear Me Become A Reader' has changed platforms - no more weekly assignments or uploading of separate audio files. With Microsoft OneNote, pupils now record and upload on the platform itself, to a confidential section in the 'class notebook' - just between the child and their teacher. What's more, pupils (and parents) can comment under each recording, as well as adding to a 'collaboration space' where pupils can recommend new books to their classmates. There is also a 'content library' containing key reading resources to help equip your child with the tools they may need to become more fluent and comprehensive readers.

The same expectations of a weekly recorded reading will be required as part of your child's home learning diet; but within the class notebook, pupils could easily upload a recording every night of the week if they wanted to (as has been requested by pupils and parents).

If using a laptop or PC, pupils can still access their class notebook via their TEAMS account, or if using a tablet or mobile phone, you can download the Microsoft OneNote APP from your APP store and sign in using your child's MS TEAMS login details (please note it can sometimes take up to 24 hours to sync notebooks).

Have a go and explore the class notebook - the more your child uses it, the more confident they will become at leading their own learning. We can't wait to see how pupils use this new tool to enhance their learning at Mayflower!

Please see the links below, which provide step-by-step instructions in 'logging in' and 'recording your reading'.
