Term 6 – We have had a fab last term in Class 1 and are looking forward to moving into our new classroom in September.

Some of our highlights from this year have been:

  • Writing our own Little Red Riding Hood stories with different characters.
  • Adding different coins together.
  • Practicing our handwriting.

This term we have been investigating our sense in Science. We especially enjoyed working out whether we could hear each other through our cup phones when the string was straight or loose.

(Insert Science 1 and 2)

Up next we will be investigating whether or not we can recognise the flavour of crisps by tasting them.

In R.E we have been looking at the different types of celebrations there are, and their similarities and differences, we started by planning our own birthday party for Teddy and sharing our ideas with the rest of the class.

Term 5 – This term in Class 1 we have been researching our favourite animal. We started our topic with a visit from Zoolab, meeting Drogo the bearded dragon, Tango the American corn snake and Tallulah the Chilean rose Tarantula. Not only did we get to meet the animals, we also learnt about the different types of habitats they live in and whether they are herbivores, omnivores or carnivores.

Whilst getting ready to write our own fact files on our favourite animals, we have been exploring the key differences between fiction and non-fiction books.  We then had to prove to each other why we were putting our book into the fiction or the non-fiction category.

Don’t forget to check out our art work at Clevedon Pier which will be on display during half term! Well done to Brooke for getting commended in the 5-7 year group category.

 

Term 4 – We have been continuing our topic of The Great Fire of London this term and have been looking at the differences between fire fighters in 1666 and fire fighters today. We even got to meet some real life fire fighters who told us about some of the different jobs they have to carry out and what we should do if we spot a fire! Check out the photo of us learning how to Stop! Drop! And Roll!

In P.E this term, we have had a special visitor coming in on a Monday to teach us how to play cricket! We were taught how to bowl over and under arm, as well as how to hold a cricket bat and where the best place is to stand when fielding. We had a lot of fun learning cricket and are looking forward to building on the skills we developed.

We would like to say a big well done to our two champions who went to represent Class 1 at the Kaleidoscope ‘Spelling Bee’. Both competitors did really well and made us very very proud!

Term 3 –  This term in Class 1 we have been learning all about the Great Fire of London and how it started. We kicked off our topic with a visitor from 1666 who took us on a journey that explored where the fire started, why King Charles II became involved and how the fire was eventually put out.

 

In maths we have been learning how to tell the time, focusing on reading o’clock and half past. We then  used these skills to answer real life problems!

In English we have been having a go at writing our own ‘overcoming the monster stories’ we started by thinking about the story of the Three Little Pigs and how they manage to overcome the wolf by building a house of bricks. As a class we then created our own story based on what we had learnt about the Great Fire of London!

Term 2 – Year 1 and Year 2 have been very busy getting ready for this year’s Nativity! We are very excited to perform A Magical Christmas Journey and as you can see from the photos, we are doing a fantastic job! We had great fun learning all the new songs and have worked incredibly hard learning the words for our Nativity.

 

Term 1 – We have had a fantastic start to the year in Class 1 and have been learning about all the different food that we can grow here in England! Farmer Nick kick started our topic by showing us what sustainable farming is all about whilst Tesco came to school to teach us how to preserve our food!

In English we have been learning how to write a recount, whilst in maths we have been developing our number recognition skills and can now count beyond 20!

Thank you to everyone who came to our Class Worship, we really enjoyed showing you everything we had achieved in Term 1 and re-enacting some of our favourite moments.
