At Woodhill we feel the early learning years are the foundations of a child’s academic future. Year 1 focuses on many basic learning skills but also aims to make things engaging and hands on. We look to teach the important lesson that making mistakes helps us learn. Mistakes are proof that we are trying and exploring and in teaching this to our pupils we help them feel encouraged instead of discouraged! School should be a joy at this stage and on top of our children excelling in reading, writing and arithmetic, they love their school.
Recent lessons include:
In Science we have been investigating Materials and their properties. We conducted an investigation to find the best material to build a house for the three little pigs.
