Elm - Year 1
Welcome back to Elm Class! All the children have settled in brilliantly and we are excited to crack on and learn all about about our new topic this term - Extreme Environments! We will be exploring deserts and rainforests, while looking at weather patterns that links to our Science and our Maths. In English we are learning the Magic Porridge Pot and using the story to learn how to write our own! Click the link to the poster below to see what we are going to get up to in more detail!
Please continue with daily reading and phonics - so, so important for our children in Year 1. We have seen so much progress already, we hope to continue this throughout the term!
We look forward to another great term! From Miss Edwards, Miss Larcombe and Miss Cook!
We sourced a variety of fruit that comes from the rainforest regions. We had a discussion on how we think the fruits arrived in this country and the conditions that they grow in. Could we grow these fruits in the UK's climate I wonder?
We used our senses to explore the fruits, and then chopped them up into a rainforest fruit salad. It was delicious, and some of us had more than one bowl!
We hope you have all had a wonderful Summer and are looking forward to the new term in a brand new class! This term we are learning all about Houses and Homes. Below is a curriculum poster highlighting some of the subjects we will cover in this topic. The direction may change slightly throughout the term depending on what the children find interesting and want to learn more about.
We hope you find this page a useful tool to find out what we have all be learning. Please have a look regularly as the page will be updated weekly with photos and any important information regarding any changes in class.
We look forward to an excellent term with our new Year 1s!
From Miss Edwards, Mrs Hambleton and Miss Cook.
Hansel and Gretel!
We've been acting out our own versions of The Three Little Pigs!
Healthy body, healthy mind! This week we have been learning all about what it means to be healthy! The Life Education Bus came to visit and we learned all the foods we can eat to keep our body fit and strong! We then chose the foods we thought would be best in a healthy pack lunch and decided on the foods we should only eat a small amount of to keep our bodies the best they can be!
We are story detectives.
We had a new story to learn about so we went on a hunt for clues around the School field. We found pictures of a pig, a house, a wolf, the wind, straw and sticks. Can you guess what our class story is?
We had a great time in our Maths lessons this week. We wrote and ordered numbers, played matching games and even had a maths treasure hunt around the class.
