Welcome to Class 1!
Our teacher is Mrs Tyrer and our teaching assistants are Mrs Porter and Mrs Blake.
We have all settled into class 1 very quickly and are getting used to the new routines and lessons we have in Key Stage 1. For the first two weeks we have completed lots of worked based on the Gingerbread Man. Here are some of the activities we have completed:
* collage pictures of the gingerbread man
* wanted posters
* magic microphone drama activities
* writing descriptions of the gingerbread man
* acting out the story in preparation for our family worship
We are all looking forward to starting our new theme Penguins, Possums and Pigs. This theme will be taught through science, art and geography. We will be looking at how to classify animals (mammals, birds etc.) as well as locating areas of the world where particular animals live (Australia – Possums and Antarctica – Penguins). We will also be using different media to create pictures of animals.
Our English lessons will be linked to our topic and we will begin by writing non chronological reports about different animals. We will then be using a lovely book – Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers – which is all about a lost (and lonely) penguin.
The main focus of maths over the first few weeks will be will be counting and place value. We will be counting forwards and backwards, up to 100. We will be looking at the value of digits in the tens column and the ones column when counting beyond 10.
