Year 1 - Birch Class

Welcome to our class webpage!

You should be able to find all the information that you need about your child's daily routine at school and our learning journey as we progress through the school year...

 

A week in Birch Class:

Monday - bring your library book to school as we will visit the school library, share a group story and change our book.

We also have PE on Mondays so please bring in your named PE kit with a change of shoes. If the weather is fine we will take part in outdoor PE so pack a tracksuit and trainers too.

Tuesday - children will take part in computing and PCHSE lessons.

Wednesday - is topic afternoon, lots of science, geography, history, art and design technology learning - a very busy afternoon!

Thursday - it's PE again so please make sure PE kits are in school! 

Friday - new spellings day... please practice at home! More topic work and celebration time in Circle Assembly.

Children participate in daily Read, Write Inc lessons, Literacy and Maths. We involve the children in lots of hands on learning experiences with practical activities to keep to our brains engaged!

Year One is a very busy year, the children have an amazing time learning about animals, space, London, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, plants, woodlands, weather and dinosaurs. We explore a variety of stories, text and poetry, writing and performing our own pieces. The children will investigate number and place value. They will develop their understanding of measure and learn to problem solve in mathematics. Children in Year One are offered a broad and engaging curriculum where they are encouraged to develop their independence, interests and strengths in both their academic progression and social awareness. 

Autumn Term 2

November - December

Brrrr! It's getting cold and wet outside... please remember to bring your coat to school. You might want to bring in a change of shoes, a hat, a scarf and gloves too - but please make sure that they are named as lots of children have the same things!
