Welcome to Year 1 Class 4

Welcome to Year 1- Class 4 (some important information for the year).

The team in class 4 is:

Class teacher- Miss Mykytiuk

Class teaching assistants- Mr Berry, Mrs Hartley, Miss Hartley and Miss Mair


In Year 1 our topic for after Easter is Moon Zoom. 

CRASH!  What’s that at school? Let’s go and take a look.  Stand back everyone- it looks like a UFO has crash-landed!  Find out who might have landed by exploring the craft and investigating scattered scientific specimens.  Create a ‘Welcome to Earth’ box for an alien explorer.  What can you put in it to help explain what life is like on our planet? 

Would you like to be an astronaut?  You’ll need a pretty sturdy spacecraft if you do.  Start off by making an air-propelled rocket…..WHOOSH!  how far can you make it travel? 

Find out the names of the planets.  There’s Mercury, Neptune, Mars and …. Do you know the others?  I’ve forgotten the rest!

Then, an alien is found… can you help him get home?  It’s got the experts in a right kerfuffle.  Professor Pong doesn’t know what to do!  Are you ready for the take-off Year 1?  Hold tight…5-4-3-2-1…LIFT OFF!
