Y1 Rosen Class

Welcome to Rosen Class. Our teachers are Mrs Armour and Miss Sutton; and our teaching assistant is Miss Mahoney. We are a fun, caring and happy class!

Rosen Class is named after an author called Michael Rosen. He writes lots of stories and poems such as ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’, ‘Little Rabbit Foo Foo’, ‘Blue’ and ‘Chocolate Cake’. We really enjoy learning and reading books by our class author!

Our classroom is bright and colourful and we have lots of resources to help us learn. The resources are stored in trays with labels on so that we can choose our own equipment for an activity. This helps us to develop our independence as we grow throughout the year. We have monitors in the classroom called ‘Helping Hands’ for different tasks. We sit at our tables and have special places and table groups for different lessons.

In English, we enjoy reading and learning about different stories as a whole class and on our own. We are taught how to use Phonics to help us to read books on our own. We think that ‘Reading is out of this World!’, and enjoy reading in our Space themed book corner. There are high frequency words displayed on the walls to help us read and learn these.

In Maths, we develop our understanding of number by doing lots of fun activities. We practise writing our numbers and we use resources and equipment to help us to understand place value, adding on and taking away, measuring and lots of other areas of maths.

We enjoy learning through other topics, which are cross-curricular. Our first topic is Happily Ever After, so we will be looking at different traditional story books such as Jack and the Beanstalk, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and many others. Throughout this topic we will combine our other subjects such as Art, History and Geography to help us fully understand and explore the topic in great depth.

Thank you for reading about our class!
