Welcome to Class 1

Welcome to Class 1!

Our teacher is Miss Cook and our teaching assistants are Mrs Bingham and Miss Cooper. We have 12 children in our class.

Our topic for this term is ‘Who lives in a Rockpool?’

During this topic we will read lots of seaside and seashore books. We are going to make our own outdoor seaside complete with ice-cream van to support our imagination and creative skills. We will write about our own experiences of seaside visits and even look at photos of the seaside in the past.

As well as our brilliant topics, we will continue to have our daily phonics sessions where we will focus on reading and writing tricky words and CVC words and reading and writing simple sentences. In Maths, we will be learning to count in ones to 100 and count in 10’s, as well as telling the time to the hour and half past, learning about coin values and naming and describing 2D and 3D shapes.

We are looking forwards to competing in Sports Day as well as having an exciting visit from Zoolab who will be bringing lots of animals for us to hold and explore. We can’t wait!

In May we enjoyed a visit to Tesco in Billingham to discover where our food comes from. We explored the different areas of the shop, the fridges and freezers in the warehouse and tried lots of different yummy fruits and vegetables. You can see pictures on the ‘School trips and events’ page of the website.

In Class 1 we take our reading book home every night. We will also have fortnightly homework related to our Topic, Maths or Literacy as well as our word books to help us practise our tricky words and handwriting books.
