Welcome to Class 1!
Our topic this term is 'All about me' where we will be getting to know all about you! We look at our bodies and keeping healthy in Science, your favourite things to do, your family, things that are special to us and where we live. This year, you will have two teachers: Mrs Armstrong on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and Mrs Blossom on Thursdays and Fridays. We can't wait to see you and listen to what you have been doing over the summer.
We will be reading lots of stories in class but the first one we will be looking at is 'The Tiger who came to tea'. As part of our English work we will be writing shopping lists, ordering the story and coming up with our own version of the story. Hopefully you received our letter inviting you to our own tea party which will be a lovely way to start our year together in Year 1.
In Maths, we will begin by looking at numbers that add up to 10 and 20 involving lots of practical activities and small group work supported by an adult. We use a system called Power Maths and will be gradually introducing the children to working from a book.
In year 1, we are very much led by children's ideas and operate a play based approach to learning alongside our lessons. Continuous provision is carefully planned to meet children's needs and stimulate their interests, alongside daily Phonics, Maths and English sessions. Please see our topic web below for further details about our learning this Autumn.
All About Me Topic Web
In the summer term we enjoyed learning all about 'The Victorians', from Queen Victoria herself, to what life was like for a chimney sweep, famous inventions and people from Victorian times. We even had a visit from Florence Nightingale herself! Please find a topic web below and our class letter for the Summer term.
