Buzzard Class (2021-2022) 🙂
Welcome to Buzzard Class
We have created this page in order to give you an overview of the routines in Year 1, together with useful information. We also intend to post photographs and examples of their fantastic work throughout the year. We hope that you will find it useful and you will enjoy seeing what the children are doing in Buzzard Class!
Our PE days are currently on Mondays and Wednesdays. We participate in a wide range of team sports and activities to encourage balance, co-ordination and movement control.
We are very passionate about the sharing of books and learning how to read here at Westonzoyland. When your child is ready, we will issue them with a reading book (suited to their ability and to encourage fluency) and do ask parents or guardians help nurture the love and enjoyment of reading by listening to your child read at least 3 times over a week. If you need any support ideas, please do not hesitate to ask a member of our class teaching team. 😃
Please take a look at our information for parents page for more details.

Today, Buzzards went to the park as a reward for our incredible behaviour and wonderful learning! We had lots of fun! ☺️
We LOVE outdoor learning! Buzzards have been developing lots of skills in teamwork, cooperation and problem solving, as well as having lots of fun!
Today Buzzard class have taken some inspiration from American artist, Jackson Pollock. He was a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement and widely noticed for his "drip technique" of pouring or splashing liquid paint onto a horizontal surface, enabling him to view and paint his canvases from all angles.
Look at our wonderful masterpieces!!!
Buzzard class love a bit of dough gym to strengthen our fingers and get us ready to write! Do you like our elephants? 🐘
Buzzards showed some superb skills in PE today. We used the gym equipment and displayed some interesting ways to climb mountains, cross bridges and jump and land safety. 🙂
Week 1 Maths
Some truly marvellous maths work in Buzzards this week. We have been counting and sorting various around the classroom, thinking about various ways we could sort them (similarities and differences) and discussing this in our groups.
