Year 1 - Miss Patino 2018 - 2019

Miss Patino

Y1 teacher KS1 manager

Hello, my name is Miss Patino and this is my first-year teaching at Longton Lane. I am delighted to be teaching Year 1 this year, and leading Key Stage 1 here at Longton Lane.

Year 1 is a busy, exciting and challenging year filled with many changes as the children move from Foundation stage into Key Stage 1. We have designed an exciting and engaging curriculum that will bring out each child’s creativity. As a Year 1 teacher, my aim is to make learning fun, and provide a happy, secure and challenging environment so that each child will reach their full potential and become confident and independent learners. I am very lucky to be teaching an enthusiastic class that enjoys new challenges and practical learning experiences. We are also very lucky to have our learning assistant, Mrs Myers working with us.

Thank you for visiting our class page. I hope you find this to be an invaluable resource to keep up to date with all the exciting and wonderful things we are learning about in Year 1 this year.

If you have any worries or concerns please, do not hesitate to come and see me at any point during the year.


Summer Term

Unbelievably we are starting our third and final term in Year 1. We continue to be extremely busy in each of the curriculum areas;

Maths – We will be focussing our learning on numbers up to 100; including counting forwards and backwards in 1s, counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.

We will also be developing our grammatical knowledge and applying it to writing in a variety of genres such as stories, poems, letters and descriptions.

We will be observing changes within the weather using our weather station in school and learning about the differences and similarities between the four seasons. Then we will focus on identifying and naming a range of wild and garden plants, including evergreen and deciduous trees. We will also be growing a range of plants in order to identify and describe the structure of different plants. Throughout this term we will be developing our skills and understanding of working practically and scientifically.
