Welcome to 1C
Our class teacher is Mrs Campbell.
We will also meet and work with
Mrs Price and Mrs McCormack
and are lucky to have a few other adults working with us at different times.
PE days - Wednesday and Friday
Please label ALL uniform including PE kit!!
When things get lost - as they sometimes do - a label is invaluable, and will usually reunite the item with it's owner!
Reading Books - please remind the children to place their book and diary into the 'Please Change Me' box once they have read it and you have recorded in their reading diary.
We will try to hear all of the children read each week - through 1:1 reading and/or Guided Reading sessions.
It is always so lovely to read the comments that you write in their diaries - it makes us proud too!
Any shared reading done at home makes such a great big difference to their confidence and enjoyment of reading, both in and out of school.
This term our topic is
We are finding out about different types of animals, how they are grouped - and why, what they eat, their habitats - as well as patterns and markings for reasons of camouflage and warnings.
In the first half term we are reading and working on books about animals from hot and cold climates - including 'The Tiger Child' from India, 'Handa's Surprise' from Kenya and 'Lost and Found' about a penguin from the Antarctic.
Lots of lovely work and writing is being inspired from these lovely books.
After half term we will be looking at non fiction and information texts and their features.
We will be finding, and writing about, animal facts.
Our learning about animals has inspired some fabulous art work on animal patterns.
The children have drawn and then painted their chosen animal pattern using colour mixing skills - making the colour they want from primary coloured powder paint.
This has made a lovely display outside our classroom - of which the children are very proud!
In Design and Technology we will be designing and sewing our very own animal hand puppets using felt and then embellishments.
Photographs to follow!
In our computing lessons for the first half term - with Mr Stephenson, the children have been learning about simple programming and have made their own simple instructions for a fruit smoothie. These have been greatly enjoyed by all!
We are learning about the changing of the seasons and the different weather patterns that come with each season.
Look at our chosen clothes for different weathers!
Sadly, we say goodbye to Miss Armstrong - who has been a lovely and inspiring student teacher.
We have all loved having you with us in 1C, Miss Armstrong.
You have been such an important part of our class and we will all miss you so much.
