Class 4- Year 1

Welcome to Class 4!

Class teacher: Miss Huntley

Teaching Assistants: Miss Wade, Mrs Wilson & Miss Van Niekerk

In Class 4, the children have settled in brilliantly and are working incredibly hard. They are really enjoying our new topic ‘Into the Woods!’ Our topic will be all about animals, the woods, plants and our focus text will be the Gruffalo. We are really excited for this topic and will have lots of interesting, fun activities to look forward to.  We are really excited to begin French and Music in Year 1, we will have Mr I and Mrs Gosney to support us. We will be working on improving our sentences using adjectives and continuing to build our knowledge of phonics and early reading.

In Maths, we will be learning all about number. We will begin with counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and working on our number formation. We will also begin to work on simple addition and subtraction using both written methods and practical resources.

In Topic, we will be finding out about our location and the UK. We will learn how to read and create simple maps as well as recognising aerial photographs.

In Science this term we will be learning about materials and their properties, where we will explain and investigate the best materials for different purposes. For our STEAM project this term, we will be planning, designing and making a bucket to hold water.

In Art our focus artist is Andy Goldsworthy, our focus is natural art. We will spend lots of time exploring outdoors and the woods. We will design and create our own piece of art using natural materials in the style of Goldsworthy.
