Year 1 | The Milford Academy

Hello and welcome to the page for both Class 3 and 4! The teachers in Year 1 are called Miss Weatherall (Class 3) and Mrs Baggley (Class 4). Miss White and Mrs Gibson, will be supporting both classes.

Watch this space for updates and photos of the exciting learning taking place in Year 1.

This half term we have been learning all about explorers. The children have been busy making a Christopher Columbus’ ship, they went on an expedition to find a new island. We have also had a lot of snow days, which the children have had fun playing in.

We have had a lot of exciting snow days, that we have made the most of playing in. We also talked about where snow comes from, what it feels like and what makes it melt.
