Class 1 (Mrs Clewarth and Mrs Burton)
Welcome to Year 1’s Class Page.
Take your time to have a look around at all the super learning we will be doing the half term.
Last Half term we learned about: Plants and Superheroes
Our topic during the last half term was Superheroes. During this we looked at superhero nurses, Mary Seacole and Jennifer Worth. We examined the role of nurses today and find out what qualities are needed to become a nurse. Eventually we learnt real nursing skills and tested our new found skills. Our Science topic was Plants and we were able to name a variety of different plants (including deciduous and evergreen trees), understand and describe how plants are suited to different habitats and understand and describe the structure of plants including leaves, flowers (blossom), petals, fruit, roots, bulb, seed, trunk, branches and stem.
Well done to everyone who gained Class Dojo points during the last half term.
Our top scorers were AGT, FS, LE, OF, and SSS.
Here are some example of the amazing learning we have been doing:
We are most proud of: How our plants have grown and that we know how to use our First Aid to help other people.
This half term we will be learning about: The Seaside.
Our Key Learning Skill for this half term is: problem solving.
We will be developing it by:Identifying the problem and using our communication and reading skills to solve them.

Homework: Children always have reading as part of their homework and are expected to read at home regularly. In mathematics the children need to practice the number bonds to and within 10, initially and then use these to calculate number bonds to and within 20; as well as practicing their 2’s,5’s and10 times tables. Children have a log on and passwords to access ‘TT Rock stars’ at home. Each week, the children also bring spellings home to learn.
