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.

Observing Our Bean Plants
Posted: Jun 18, 2019 by: Charlotte Goodall (cgoodall) on: Cockroft Class Blog
Last week, Nightingale Class planted broad beans to observe how plants develop from seeds to plants.
Here are the instructions that we wrote to show what we needed to do:
- First, put the cotton wool in the bag.
- Next, put the broad bean into the bag.
- After that, add water and seal the bag.
- Don't forget to write your name on your bag!
Today, we observed the changes that happened to our broad bean.
Seb noticed "the roots have grown to help it go searching for food." Elizabeth commented "the stem keeps it upright so it can grow even more." George P was amazed at how quickly his bean plant had grown.
