Welcome to Class 1.
Class 1 is taught by Mrs Lock on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Middleton on Thursday and Friday.
This half term we will be looking at 'Superheroes'.
What makes a superhero? What qualities or super powers do they need?
We will be looking at people who help us - the role of the emergency services.
Our chosen text is 'Juniper Jupiter' by Lizzie Stewart.
A little girl discovers the true nature of friendship.
We will also be finding out about the birth of Jesus and joining with Class 2 to perform our Christmas production 'The Nativity'.
Our first topic was 'All about me !'.
We found out about our families and our homes. We found out about our bodies, our senses and all the wonderful things our bodies can do.
We also looked closely at the book 'Star in the Jar' by Sam Hay.
A lot of our writing was based on this text
Last year's learning
During the second half of the summer term, Mrs Connor taught in Class 1 as we waited for news of Mrs Willington's baby!
The children learned about 'Food', using stories the Gingerbread Man and Handa's Surprise to start their learning.
During the first summer half term we found out about New Life. We loved learning all about plants, animals and humans.
We really enjoyed our trip to Mill Dale. We went pond dipping and went on a mini-beast hunt. We searched for the orienteering clues using the site map.
The role play changed into a baby clinic, ready for the arrival of Baby Willington.
Rapunzel is stuck in the tower! How will we get her out?
The children have enjoyed using the Tinkering Table and the Cutting Station. These activities improve fine motor control using both small construction pieces, such as screws and bolts or scissors at the Cutting Station.
Any resources you have at home, such as construction pieces or ribbon would be greatly appreciated.
