Welcome to Class 1's page
Welcome back Class 1! We hope you all had a lovely time over the Easter break with your family and friends.
Our topic for this term is 'Pirates'. We will be learning all about Pirates in history and who they were and what they did. In science, we will be learning all about plants and the children will be planting sunflower seeds. They will then make observations and note down what happens as they grow over the next few weeks! We will then move onto living things and their habitats after half term. In Art and Design, we will be focusing on sculpture and looking at different artists. The class will then create their own sculpture using driftwood and other objects found on the beach.
Class 1 will continue focusing on developing their phonics knowledge and reading this term, but also concentrate on developing their writing too. To help children develop their reading skills, they should read at home at least 3 times a week. Some of the children will come home with a phonics pack which will have all the sounds and tricky words that they have learnt so far! It is important to try and practice these sounds and words as often as you can.
PE has now moved back to a Friday afternoon. Can you please make sure you come to school in your full PE kit (green polo shirt, black shorts/joggers and trainers or plimsols).
It's great to have you all back. We are really looking forward to this term with you all. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Miss Cook, Miss Beer, Miss Kitto and Mrs Stevens.
