Miss Curry, Mrs Ward and Miss Foster would like to say a big Welcome back after our lovely Christmas break.
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.
Children will receive daily phonics lessons in set groups so children can learn and work at a pace which suits them. They will be using the Read Write Inc scheme and will work from phase 1-3 covering all sounds.
In English this term, we will be reading lots of texts both fiction and non-fiction (Dinosaur Bones, Tyrannosaurus drip and The Dinosaur who pooped a planet to mention a few!) and writing for a range of purposes. 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 addition, subtraction and multiplication and division. There will also be a big focus on learning the times tables according to their year group. Children will also be introduced to statistics and looking at graphs. We will also be revisiting learning from Autumn Term to ensure the children have the best chance of retaining knowledge. 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 Materials in Science (We will be getting our hands dirty with great experiments). Our topic in History is looking at homes from the past and we will get visitors to speak to the children about personal experiences. 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 colour chaos- we look forward to see their masterpieces.
Our P.E lessons will be every Tuesday. We will be covering many skills this term and learning new balances in gymnastics.
The children also have access to our outdoor provision which helps increase their physical development.
