Welcome to Class 1
Class 1 have had a busy half term! The children have settled well into their new routine of entering the classroom on their own and have become much more independent already. We have been working hard to improve our writing, reading, SPAG and maths so we can be the best we can be. We have been revisiting previous learning to make sure we are prepared and confident for our Key Stage 1 Assessments which will begin after Easter.
We have completed our ‘Super Humans’ topic by finding out about germs and how we can keep our bodies healthy. We have found out about how our bodies move and what we have to do to them and put into them to keep us healthy. We particularly enjoyed our ‘after school snack’ making where we planned, designed and evaluated our own snacks. Baby Charlotte and Mrs Moxon came to visit us so we could find out more about what humans need to grow and change.
We will be thinking scientifically in the first summer term to help us understand more about plants, including what they need to grow successfully and closely observing plants as they develop. Maybe you could offer us some advice? Our new main topic is the whole school ‘Picture This’ project. We’ll be doing lots of creative work around ‘The Water-Lily Pond’ painting by Claude Monet. We hope you will come to see the exhibition later in the year.
Please continue to support your child at home by listening to them read for 5-10 minutes a day. It really does make a huge difference to their progress.
