Welcome to Class 1's page!
Welcome, Class 1! I hope you all had a fantastic time over the Summer Holiday and have been looking forward to the Autumn Term.
Our topic for this term is Flames and Fireworks. We will be learning all about the Great Fire of London and how it started, why it spread so quickly and comparing the fire brigade in 1666 to the fire brigade today.
A knowledge organiser for this topic and science has been included on this page so you can see exactly what we will be looking at and learning this term.
Class 1 will be focusing on developing their phonics knowledge, reading and number sense this term. 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. Please could you also make sure the packs are in school each week as the new sounds and tricky words you are learning will need to go in them.
PE will be on a Friday this term. Please can you make sure you come to school in your PE kit (green polo shirt, black shorts/joggers and trainers or plimsols).
We are really looking forward to this term with you all and all the exciting topics to come! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
