Hello! Thank you for visiting our page. We are a Year 1 class. Mrs Convery is our class teacher and Mrs Holliday supports us in the morning.
Our class mascot is Dobby the red dragon. He lives in our classroom castle with his friends Goldie, Duke, Duncan and Toothless. Dobby and his friends inspire many of our learning challenges, that is when Dobby is not having adventures outside the classroom on his sleepovers with us!
In Dobby's Den we learn best when activities are real, relevant and fun! We enjoy hands-on, active experiences and our teachers know that learning in this way through play is exciting and engaging. Along with our computers and interactive plasma, we are lucky to have access to the 'continuous provision' areas, such as the sand, playdough, construction, come and make, come and paint and book area on a daily basis. This helps us to practise and 'show off' our knowledge, skills and understanding in a fun and practical way and helps us to become independent and resilient learners.
Our classroom is a happy, vibrant place to learn where you can always rely on your friends to help out or give you a pat on the back! We have lots of fun together and our teachers are proud of the care and kindness we show to each other and everyone else in our school. In Dobby's Den, we all use our teamwork and helping hands from our resilience rucksack fantastically to support each other in our independent challenges across the curriculum areas.
We love learning in lots of different ways; in groups, partners or independently. We enjoy daily English, Maths and Phonics and our topic work gives us a wide and varied mixture of Science, Geography, History, Design Technology and Creative Arts. Our interactive plasma screen and computers help us to apply our computing throughout all areas of the curriculum and we develop our physical skills in our weekly PE sessions, both indoor and out. The topics we learn about in Year 1 are The World outside my window, Castles and crafty creations and All Creatures Great and Small.
Mrs Convery and Mrs Holliday are proud of each and every kind, caring and helpful member of Dobby's Den.
We love to learn and we love Dobby and his friends!
