Welcome to Class 1!
We are Class 1! Our teacher is Mrs Ashworth and our teaching assistant is Mrs Porter.
We are settling into Class 1 and are enjoying our theme this term which is ‘Growth and Green Fingers’. In autumn 2, our theme will be ‘Penguins, Possums and Pigs’.
The focus subjects within ‘Growth and Green Fingers’ are science, art and design and DT. In science we will learn to identify and name a variety of common wild and garden plants, including deciduous and evergreen trees, and describe their basic structure. Our upcoming trip to Delamere Forest will support our learning in science.
We will observe plants and flowers and have the opportunity to draw and paint these, and in DT, we will explore different fruits and use them to design a ‘fruit face’.
In history, we will be looking at significant individuals and making comparisons between them.
Our English units of work are ‘Classic Stories’, ‘Instructions’ and ‘Traditional Rhymes’. In ‘Classic Stories’, we will look at ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ and then we will create our own stories. We will look at and write our own instructions linked with science and DT and in ‘Traditional Rhymes’, we will read, perform and write our own poems.
In Autumn 2, our theme is ‘Penguins, Possums and Pigs’ and the focus subjects are geography and science. In geography, we will look at the continents and oceans, and the hot and cold areas in the world. In science, we will look at animals, and their similarities and differences.
The children will have opportunities in art and design to draw in different mediums, including pastel crayons, and develop their ideas into 3D using clay.
