Class 1D

Welcome to Class 1D

Our class teacher this year is Mrs Dunn.  Miss Quinn will work with us on a Friday.  Mrs Dhangar and Mrs Faheen will also be helping us with our work. Mrs Sykes works in the shared area and plans lots of exciting activities to support our learning.


Lessons this term ….…..

Year 1 will be changing how we work this half term and progressing to whole class teaching for English and Maths in the mornings. This is to develop independence skills and prepare children for Year 2 . Our Topics this term is ‘Food Glorious Food’ and ‘Our World’. We are having ’Food Glorious Food’ day on April 19th when we will plan and make a selection of hot and cold food alongside designing a healthy balanced meal. We look forward to tasting the food we make.

In English we will be using the Prince’s book Breakfast and Lost and Found to develop our writing. We will be improving our sentence writing and will continue to develop our use of punctuation.

In Summer 2 we will be taking our Phonics Screen Check and so it is important that we practise our phonics sounds at home and read as often as we can. Phonics lessons will continue everyday and children may bring additional flash cards or sound mats home to  help support their learning.

In Maths we will continue to understand place value, understand fractions, using half and a quarter of amounts. We will be introducing the concept of money and learning the value of coins/notes, alongside ordering and making different amounts of money.

In Summer 2 the topic ’Our World’ will include learning about different animals and our trip is to Tropical World.
