1 High Spy are named after the mountain ‘High Spy’ because it is an easy mountain to remember! But also because we like playing I Spy! Our teachers are Mrs Springthorpe on a Monday and Miss Green Tuesday-Friday. The other adults in our class are Mrs Ahmed, Mrs Rehman & Ms Day. We are a hard-working, busy class that loves to complete challenges in our provision areas and if we have shown good use of our ‘CLIMB’ skills we get to choose a treat from the mechanics jar! We share the outdoor space with 1 Ben Loyal where we get to be very creative! We are very good at phonics following the ‘Floppy Phonics’ scheme and we are getting very quick at our speedy sounds. We also like counting to different songs!

Welcome to 1 Ben Loyal! We are named after a beautiful mountain in the countryside in Scotland which is in the north of the UK. We try our best to CLIMB to the top of the mountain everyday and try to win house points, stickers and certificates for trying our best. Like real mountaineers we never give up and know we can ask our teachers for help when we need it.
We love to use the classroom areas to build, complete artwork, draw and read and we work really hard in small groups on reading and maths. Floppy Phonics is our first lesson everyday and we join in with our speedy sounds and reading routine to make us excellent readers and writers.
We will be discovering more about our local area and contrasting it to our partner school in Africa. We will also be finding out about London and other areas of the British Isles. Our other topics are based on history skills where we will find out about the first Moon Landing and Toys from the past. We have some exciting stories to share together including The Colour Monster, Traction Man, Paddington, How to Hide a Lion and classics such as The Tiger Who Came to Tea. Our classroom is all about talking, sharing our ideas and retelling stories! What an exciting place to be!
In 1A we have 20 bubbly girls and 10 boys who are all very creative and love to learn new things. Miss Ackroyd is the class teacher and Mrs Ahmed is our teaching assistant. We love learning about people, especially artists such as Salvador Dali, Picasso and Jackson Pollock. We have recently been learning about plants and have really enjoyed doing on nature walks around our local park.
