Class 1 (Years 1 & 2) at Follifoot

The teacher for Class 1 is Miss Diggle.

A welcome message from your teacher

My name is Miss Diggle and I will be the Class 1 teacher at Follifoot in September.

In my spare time I enjoy running and spending time outdoors. I also love travelling and have visited lots of interesting places so I have lots of great stories to share.

We have some really exciting topics coming up in the Autumn term. In History we will be going all the way back to the 14th Century and learning about Spofforth castle and the very important Percy family. We will be thinking about seasonal changes and every day materials and their uses in Science.  In RE we will be learning what Christians believe about the creation of the world and the life and beliefs of Jewish people. We will be using shape to draw and paint in the style of Paul Klee Senecio in Art and learning how to sew in Design Technology.

Learning to live with Covid 19

We are all learning to live in a world with COVID19. Part of helping children adjust to this is helping them understand and make sense of it. This guide produced by the children’s commissionaire contains child friendly explanations and links to advice, support and activities to help children make this adjustment. Staff will be using aspects of it in school and parents may like to use parts of this with their children or simply be aware of some of the ideas and suggestions.
