'Inspiring Learning Together'

White Rock Primary School


The Brambling can be found most commonly in the British Isles during the cold winter months, the rest of the year it explores other regions of the world. They travel in large groups (usually in the thousands!) and we will take this characteristic of this bird and use it in our classroom to ensure that there is a sense of teamwork to encourage all children to work together and support each other in their learning journey!


This Terms Theme

'The Same But different ...'

This term Year 1 are learning about the similarities and differences between each other. Our class text, The Big Book of Families will be used to help highlight how our families may differ. Our PSHE focus this term will be 'Living in the Wider World' where we will be looking at different cultures and compare them to ours in the UK.
