Elm - Year 1
Welcome to Elm Class! This term, we are excited to start our topic called 'Don't judge a book by it's cover!' Through this topic, we are going to be looking at stories from other cultures, and in particular stories from Australia. We are going to explore the land down under and find out as much information as we can about the cultures, habitats and history of Australia.
Click the link to the poster below to see what we are going to be learning in more detail!
Please continue with daily reading and phonics - so important for our children in Year 1. We have seen so much progress already, we hope to continue this throughout the term!
A particular focus is going to be put on using and applying our phase 5 sounds, reading and spelling the Year 1 common exception words and our handwriting skills.
We look forward to another great term! From Miss Larcombe, Mrs Hambleton and Miss Cook.
World Book Day 2019
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.
