Class 1

Class 1 - 1st half of Autumn term 2018

 

 

Here is an aerial photograph of our school taken many years ago - possibly in the 1960s ??

 

 

In Science we are finding out about animals and plants around the school, ourselves and our senses. In art we are using a range of media to draw and paint portraits of ourselves and our friends. We are exploring our emotions in R.E. and dance.

Maths includes learning number facts, calculation, shape, measures and money as well as problem-solving across all these areas. Support at home with learning number facts and trying maths challenges is always welcomed.
 
The children will use ICT across all these subject areas, using Word, Espresso, and maths games. They will also program Beebot (a floor robot) and use remote control toys.

Homework in Class 1 is regular reading practice, sight words, spellings, mental maths targets (counting in 2's etc. or times tables) and maths challenges.
