Christmas at Brabyns is all about excitement, joy and wonder both in and out of the classroom. The children have loved being in school this term and their day begins with skipping and smiling down our ‘Yellow Brick Road’ and into lessons. Giving the children opportunities to make, create and express themselves in different ways has meant for a positive mental attitude.
The children of Year 1 have experienced exciting, new maths games, developed their writing skills by using Pie Corbett’s ‘Talk 4 Writing’ and increased their colouring, cutting and glueing skills as they produce loving gifts for their family. Embedded in all that we do are the opportunities to nurture a love of learning new things and the promise of enjoyment throughout the winter months. The foundations of becoming enthusiastic about anything new is having that magical feeling that something wonderful is going to happen. This is the essence of teaching in Year 1.
