Y1 Rosen Class

Welcome to Rosen Class. Our teachers are Miss Djan, Mrs Bartholomeusz and Mrs Ivey.

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 and displays 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 called ‘Home seats’, as well as 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 independently. Our phonics display is very colourful! We think that reading is very important and enjoy reading in our ‘Under the Sea’ themed reading area. 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. There are various times tables displays around the room to help us learn.

We enjoy learning through other topics, which are cross-curricular. Our first topic is ‘Enchanted Woodlands’, so we will be looking at different traditional story books such as Jack and the Beanstalk and We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. 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!
