Primary Academy

1H (Hornbeam)


Welcome to 1H! Our class teacher is Miss Woldu and we are supported by Mrs Katarina, our dedicated LSA.

We are a class of kind, respectful and determined children. In our classroom, we use the 7 Habits of Effective Children to ensure that we are effective learners and leaders. We set goals and challenge ourselves. We believe that anything is possible if you work hard, synergise and put first things first.

Year 1 is an exciting year as it is an opportunity for us to learn a lot of vital skills that will support us throughout our time at Woodside and beyond. We do daily phonics to give us a flying start with our reading and writing.

Our writing lessons involve retelling stories from a plethora of wonderful books. We also explore and write for different types of genres such as poetry, instruction texts and non-chronological reports.

In maths, we learn our numbers to 100, as well as adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. We use a range of exciting resources such as ten frames, counters and cubes to develop our understanding of mathematical concepts. To become maths superstars, we must learn our number bonds to 10 and 20, so we will practise these until we know them inside out.

This year, we look forward to taking part in a variety of extra-curricular activities and educational visits such as, Shrek’s Adventure, The London Transport Museum and London Zoo.

If you would like to see some of the work we have produced, you will find us on Forest Site.
