Mrs Violette is the Class Teacher on a Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Lucas is the Class Teacher from Wednesday to Friday. Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Frame, Monday to Friday.
During their time in Class 1, children build on their prior knowledge gained in Reception. Children still learn through play in a number of ways and have the opportunity to become confident, independent learners.
Throughout the year Class 1 continue to learn how to read and write through the use of phonics and also by learning Common Exception Words, which are those tricky words that cannot be sounded out. Children will bring home weekly spelling lists which can be found on the Class 1 page of this website.
In Maths, children will become confident mathematicians through hands-on, practical lessons. Children will be encouraged to explain their findings which will enable them to further develop their mathematical understanding.
Each term is taught via an exciting topic and is often begun through an exciting Blast Off. This really captures the children’s imaginations and brings their learning to life!
We hope you and your child really enjoy being part of Class 1!
Term 3 French – Le Carnaval!
Who will be King or Queen for the day? Firstly we will be exploring the tradition of La fête des Rois – The Festival of Kings, making crowns and designing charms. The Carnival of the Animals by the French composer Camille Saint – Saëns will be our theme this term. We will encounter balancing elephants and multicoloured elephants!
