The Yr 1 children in class 1: This terms topic is investigative where children build the skills of exploration, observation and classification. We will begin by discovering the school grounds and observing the different types of trees and plants we have at school. We will then create a tally of the number of evergreen and deciduous trees. We will look closely at the parts of a flower and draw a labelled diagram before researching the artist, Georgia O’Keefe. Inspired by O’Keefe, we will learn how to take close-up photographs using a digital camera and then transform the children’s images into a unique piece of artwork to be shown in our Year 1 & 2 Art Exhibition.
Mrs Chambers teaches class 1 on a Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. Mrs Grocott teaches class 1 on a Wednesday and Friday.
Mrs Leach supports class 1 all week.
Year 1 homework

Reading—Please hear your child read frequently it is important that as well as listening to them you engage them in a conversation about what they have read. The children will also have zippy wallets with tricky words for them to learn.
For year R children it is important to share books with your child as often as possible. The children need to talk about the pictures, describe what is happening, and predict what might happen.
We have PE on a Wednesday and Thursday.
