Haytor - Foundation/Year 1

Welcome to Haytor Class 2021/2022

Haytor is a mixed Foundation/Year 1 class which currently has 28 pupils and is taught by Miss Jemma Lewis.  Haytor has strong links with Chudleigh Knighton Pre-School who visit us at our setting.  We like to make good use of our outdoor play area as well as the school garden during our lessons; our school field is used during our PE sessions.

Cricket Skills!

Haytor class wanted to make sure our planter at the front of school was ready to welcome some lovely bees and butterflies. They worked with Mrs Forey to weed the area and planted some more seeds to encourage some more visitors. Well done, Haytor! I look forward to seeing the new flowers blossom. 

The children thoroughly enjoyed World Book Day! They spent the day sharing stories, creating their own imaginary worlds and looked at favourite books with Saddletor Class. We even had a very special guest - Mrs Driscoll - who 'zoomed in' to read some stories with the class.

EYFS Activity Ideas

Christmas Jumpers!

As part of our Virtual Visit to India, we have been looking at Rangoli Patterns. We have learned that Hindus draw these patterns on their doorsteps to welcome friends and family during the festival of Diwali. The Rangoli Pattern symbolises strength, generosity and good fortune. Hindus hope that by drawing the symbols outside of their homes, the Goddess Lakshmi will visit and bring wealth and happiness for the year ahead.

Alma Thomas inspired Artwork!

AIma Thomas was an African-American Expressionist painter and art educator best known for her colourful abstract paintings. Alma is considered to have been successful despite her race and gender. She created paintings that focussed on colour and rhythm and pattern.

"Man’s highest aspirations come from nature. A world without colour would seem dead. Colour is life. Light is the mother of colour. Light reveals to us the spirit and living soul of the world through colors.” – Alma Thomas – 1982. 


Haytor decided to each create an individual picture to show that everyone is different and this should be celebrated. "People may have different skin colours, or may have disabilities or think different things to us but that doesn't matter. We should always be kind to everyone because that is what is important." - Year 1

Remember, Remember the 5th of November!

Harvest Festival!

We enjoyed learning about Harvest Festival. The children were fantastic at suggesting other ways we can show we care about others. They loved discussing what they had donated from home and how it would be useful. Well done Haytor!

This week, the 'New Starters' were welcomed into our Chudleigh Knighton 'Family' with a 'Presentation of Bibles' Service. Haytor were joined by Mr Spraggon and Maren, our Chudleigh Area Youth Project worker, for the service.

Christmas Fun!

Hay Tor have been reading 'William's Winter Wish' and inspired by the story they are working hard on their story planning and story mapping. The Year 1 children are reimagining and retelling the story for their next piece of writing. The Reception children really enjoyed reading through the Year 1 story plans. We can't wait to read the finished stories! 
In Haytor, we have been thinking about how to have an effective discussion. The children and I worked together to create some 'Discussion Guidelines' to enable us to talk about what we are learning. They trialled the guidelines during our English lesson and found that when we followed them, our conversations were much more focused and everyone had the opportunity to share their ideas! 

Seasonal Changes!


We've been learning about the parts of a plant!

Year 1 Nature Morning at River Dart Country Park

Year 1 children had an opportunity to spend a morning exploring at the Country Park.  What amazing things they found.

A visit to Abbrook Farm

We visited the farm and looked at a range of animals, including 5 new lambs, pigs, geese, chickens, ducks and a dog.  We then had a nature walk around the site and found lots of interesting things.
Such a shame that this happened on a 'Snow Day'.
