Welcome to Class 1

Miss Driver is the teacher in class 1, alongside her are the teaching assistants Mrs Saxton and Miss Steventon.  Our PE sessions are on a Wednesdy and Thursday each week.

This half term in class 1 we will be continuing with our topic  called 'Awfully Big Adventures'. We will be taking inspiration from the stories Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan to discuss characters, imagine our own worlds and plan our own tea party.

We have already learnt so much and found this topic very engaging and interesting.

We will be trying to understand what it would be like to live in the Victorian times like Alice and the Darling children from our stories. We will be learning about victorian homes and comparing them to our own homes today. We will get the chance to examine some victorian objects and our visit will take us back in time to the victorian kitchen at Canon Hall Museum, where we will experience what it would have been like to work there as a servant.

In Geography we will be learning about the United Kingdom and its countries. We will be using maps to locate important places and creating our own maps.

We will be finding out about plants in science. We will be finding out what plants need to grow, what each part of a plant is for and growing some of our own plants. We will be using our observation skills to sketch and paint plants in art to develop our skills with powder paint. We will also be learning about surrealist art.

Our PE topics are Atheltics and Cricket.

Miss Scott will continue to visit us on Monday mornings for music, we have loved playing some of the percussion instruments and have learnt so many new songs already.
