Class 1HR

Welcome to 1HR!

Hello Superstars! My name is Miss Ralston and I am one of the Year 1 teachers at Tyntesfield. In Class 1HR we also have our wonderful teaching assistant Mrs Etchells.

In Year 1 we believe in providing a safe environment for children to ‘wobble’ when learning and to be empowered by mistakes. We reassure children with our phrase ‘mistakes are great’ because of the brilliant learning opportunity they provide. Together we will continue to develop a positive growth mind set becoming more resilient independent learners. Both myself and Mrs Etchells are so excited to help you flourish and grow.

In Year 1 we have so many new exciting subjects to learn about as we begin the National Curriculum. Throughout the year we aim to become more independent learners and work effectively with peers through partner work and group work. We have so much to explore and investigate to help stretch our minds in new subjects like..

Geography where we will explore the world we live in.

History where we will be learning about toys from the past and great explorers like Amelia Earhart.

Music where you will learn how to play the Ukulele.

Religious Education where we learn about people’s beliefs and explore different religious celebrations.

Design and Technology where we learn how to plan, make and create.

Art where we will get messy learning all about the artists Georgia O’Keefe and Pablo Picasso.

Science where we will investigate plants, animals and seasons.

And so many more amazing subjects to get stuck into! Miss Ralston and Mrs Etchells are looking forward to celebrating your achievements with you in Year 1, especially for the effort used throughout your learning journey!

Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.



Pupils very much enjoy coming to school... They feel safe in the stimulating environment into which they are warmly welcomed... One pupil stated that, ‘You can be yourself here.’
