In Class 1, we will be learning lots of new things and covering a wide range of topics. We can’t wait to use all of our areas in the classroom to engage and inspire the children.
In English this term, we will be reading lots of texts (What Ever Next, Stick Man and the Gruffalo just to mention a few!) and writing for a range of purposes. We will be reading a range of stories and nonfiction books to inspire the children to write. Where possible, we will link our English to our topics. We will constantly update and enhance our areas, including our outdoor areas, to link in with the children’s learning and their interests.
This term, we will look at place value of 2 digit numbers and how they fit into the number system. There will also be a big focus on learning the 2, 5 and 10 times table. We will also be looking at the 4 operations; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The children will learn new methods and how to use these to solve problems. Lots of practical resources will be used to aid the learning of the children.
In our wider curriculum, we will be Exploring Weather Seasonal Changes and Animals including Humans- The Body and Senses. We are making History is our topic in History and this will be closely linked to PSHCE and how we are unique. As a school we are very lucky to have a kitchen which Class 1 will use every Thursday afternoon to cook up some delicious dishes! In Art, our topic will be In the dark of night where our children will explore and recreate famous pictures by Van Gough.
Our P.E lessons will be every Tuesday afternoon. We will be covering many skills this term and after half term we will be getting the opportunity to work with an external coach to cover gymnastics!
Class 1 will be attending Horse Riding every Friday Morning starting 24th September and continuing for 6 consecutive weeks. Please can you make sure the children wear warm suitable clothing to attend the sessions.
