Spring Term 1 - 2022

Happy new year everyone! We hope that you have all had a wonderful, relaxing Christmas and are ready for the start of Spring term. We are looking forward to seeing you and have lots of exciting things planned over the coming weeks.

Our main English focus will be based around a beautiful picture book entitled 'The Lion Inside' by Rachel Bright and Jim Field. This is based on the adventures of a small mouse who befriends a lion in the African savannah. This book is about friendship and kindness, teaching us all that you don't have to be big or brave to find your 'roar'. We will enjoy role play which will inspire wonderful, descriptive writing. 

We will continue to work hard with our phonics learning.  We would encourage you to consolidate this learning with your child at home as this will really help their progress.

In Maths, we will build on last terms work revisiting concepts of place value, addition and subtraction. We will then look at ordering and partitioning numbers and number bonds to 10/20. We will work on recognising coins, ordering coins in value and making given totals. We will also look at 2 and 3Dshapes, simple measures, time and using mathematical language to describe position.

Topic work begins with a Geography focus and will be looking at the question 'What is the geography of where I live?' This investigation focuses on our immediate vicinity of the school and the children's homes and then extends to encompass the local area. We will explore Google Earth and undertake some local fieldwork. We will look at physical and human features of the environment and begin to explain any changes in land use that have occurred.

In Science our topic focus is Everyday Materials- Lets Build.  The children will explore different materials and have lots of opportuntiies to experiment with materials for building.

We can’t wait to get started!

Children will all be given 2 reading books per week and would all benefit from reading every night. Little and often is best! Homework will be sent out on Fridays to be handed in by the following Tuesday. We really appreciate your support in this matter. 

P.E. for Class 1 will be each Monday and Wednesday and the children should come into school wearing their P.E. kits on these days. 

Please check the class page regularly for updates and photographs of what we have been getting up to in class. 

Each child will soon receive their own login details for both Purple Mash and Active Learn. Both online learning platforms offer a great range of learning activities that children enjoy in school.

Remember if you want to contact us, please use the Class One email -

 Keep smiling! 

-Many thanks
