Class 1

Reaching for the Stars with Aspiration and Hope


This term we are Geographers and will be exploring the United Kingdom, focusing on England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. We will be learning about the capital cities, traditional celebrations, dances and food! 
We have started our new English text, 'The World We Live In' which poses lots of questions to make our imagination go wild! 
Y1 are becoming maths masters, learning about number within 50. They will be using tens and ones equipment to make 2-digit numbers, thinking about pictorial representations of number. We will start considering multiplication, counting in 10's, 5's and 2's and making arrays and repeated addition to aid an understanding of multiplication. 
Reception will be continuing with their phonics learning, revising the sounds that they know, moving onto new sounds and words. Our focus will be about using our phonic knowledge to create a sentence. in Maths Reception will be investigating number and shape so please point numbers and shapes in the environment as you drive or walk around. 
Forest School should start again after half term. A letter will sent out nearer the time. 
In the meantime, we are bird feeding and bird watching, creating, making stories, thinking mathematically, being good friends to each other and getting outside as much as we can  (sorry for the muddy/wet clothes!)
If you have any questions please ask, either on the playground, via Tapestry or email.
Mrs Carpenter, Mrs Meek and Miss O-S.
