Teaching and Learning KS1
We are happy to come to school because we like learning and we get peace and quiet to work
We sometimes worry when it’s our first day in a new class
Our favourite things are independent writing, phonics and maths
Some of us find homework hard if we don’t get any help
If we find learning hard in class we ask an adult or try again
We are proud of our learning when our teachers are happy with it and when we get the answers right
We would like to do more poetry, learning about dinosaurs, volcanoes and football.
Some people are bossy.
Teachers are aware of the above, let’s see what we learn next!
