Teacher's Comments

Welcome to Keen Knightsbridge! Our Year 1 class is named after Knightsbridge tube station which is close to some of London’s most famous shops such as Harvey Nicholls and Harrods. There are 17 boys and 13 girls in our class and we are all ready to learn!

In Year 1 we will be exploring many exciting topics and are kicking the year off with ‘Around the World’ where we will be finding out about the continent of Asia. This involves locating those countries on a map, that make up the continent of Asia and discovering their cultural foods, religions, dances and learning about other exciting traditions.

Our class author is Julia Donaldson who is well-known for her enjoyable, rhyming, hidden-moral story books such as ‘The Gruffalo’, ‘The Smartest Giant in Town’ and ‘Paper Dolls’. This year we are looking forward to reading more of her stories and discussing these in more depth; such as how Donaldson describes her characters, creates clever rhyming couplets and structures her stories to entice her readers.

We are an energetic, inquisitive and hard-working class and you can keep up-to-date with everything we are learning about just by looking at our classroom display boards and windows which will exhibit some of our finest work!
