A Message from the Class Teacher, Mrs Chick

Class 1

2018-19 Term 3


Hello and welcome to Class 1!


This page outlines what we will be learning about this term:

English: We will looking at a range of fiction/ non-fiction books and poems to inspire our writing. We will regularly practise writing sentences with punctuation (capital letters, finger spaces and full stops). We will be seeing if we can apply a range of skills we've learnt in English to our writing e.g. sometimes use question marks/ exclamation marks at the end of our sentences and remember to include adjectives to make our writing more exciting! 

Maths: We will be practising addition and subtraction using a range of methods. Alongside this we will be recalling number bonds to 10. We will be learning the days of the week/ months of the year and practising telling the time to the hour/ half hour. We will be recapping reading and writing numbers in numerals and words. We will begin to measure and compare lengths and heights e.g. longer/shorter.

RE: We will be learning 'What is the good news that Jesus brings?'. We will be learning that Jesus is a friend to everyone, Jesus forgives everyone and Jesus gives us peace.

Topic: We will be learning about our wonderful world. We will be looking at animals and plants. We will begin by looking at different habitats and show what we have learnt by creating our own habitat boxes. We will then learn about growing vegetables, plants and flowers and have a go at growing our own!

Science: We will be learning how we can look after animals. We will explore outside to find minibeasts and their habitats. We will then use what we have learnt to create a comfortable home for woodlice. We will also be learning what is needed to keep pets happy and healthy.


Class 1's week ahead sheet will be sent home on Fridays with details of what we will be learning about the following week.

Please feel free to find me on the playground or arrange a meeting if you have any questions. 


Thank you for all your help and support,

Mrs Chick
