Welcome to Cockroft Class

Teacher: Miss Goodall

Welcome to Cockroft Class! We are the Year 1 class at Scissett CE Academy. This year, all of our classes are named after athletes who are hoping to go for gold at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics. We are named after Hannah Cockroft, a world champion and Paralympic gold medallist from Halifax and we can’t wait to follow her journey.

We have 30 children in our class and we are really proud to all be unique individuals. Miss Goodall is our class teacher and she teaches us everyday – if she isn’t in class, she is usually organising something sporty for our school! She loves to keep us active so you might find us dancing to Supermovers to help us learn our maths or running the 1K a day track. Miss Buckley also helps us to learn every day. From phonics and funky fingers in a morning to topic and science in an afternoon, she supports us to access the Year 1 curriculum. Mrs Martin teaches us on a Monday afternoon and, alongside Mrs Glen, she makes sure we become mini artists.

In Cockroft Class, we work hard to build on the skills that we have learnt whilst following the EYFS curriculum in Reception and we can still access the shared areas to continue to develop these. Though we have a more structured daily routine, continuous provision and outdoor learning are still important to us. We’re lucky to have access to great outdoor spaces at Scissett Academy and we are excited to explore these more this year. In Year 1, we have lots of different activities throughout the day to develop our English and Maths skills in lessons and in cross-curricular ways. We also practise our phonics every day to keep improving our reading skills.

Keep checking back to see what we get up to!

Claude in the City - what is the city like?

Posted: Oct 9, 2019 by: Charlotte Goodall (cgoodall) on: Cockroft Class Blog


This week, Cockroft Class have started thinking about their new text, Claude in the City. This text is also helping us to develop our writing strategies, especially the term 'magpie-ing'. 

During our lesson, the children listened to a city soundscape and watched a time lapse video of London to experience what it is like in a city. Then, they thought up lots of ideas to describe the city for our working wall. Miss Goodall challenged them to add as many interesting details as possible, so we could add these to our working wall. She also allowed us to magpie other people's ideas - meaning we could borrow them to make our own work better.

Here are some super descriptions we came up with as a class:

Sienna - "tall, tall towers"
Amelia S - "beautiful statues made out of stone"
Lyra - "underground trains chucking along"
