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 ….…..
In the first half term our topic will be ‘Enchanted Forest’. Throughout this topic we will be doing lots of science, including learning about different wild and garden plants, deciduous and evergreen trees, the different parts and functions of plants and what they need to grow.
The ‘Enchanted Forest’ topic will also be linked to the stories we read and write throughout English this half term. In addition to traditional stories, we will also be writing a non-chronological report about a country within the United Kingdom. This will link in with our Geography topic in which we will be learning about the countries and capital cities within the United Kingdom.
Our topic next half term will be ‘Magnificent Materials’ where we will be learning the names and properties of some common materials and different ways to classify them. We will be learning about the artist Henry Moore and venturing to the Sculpture Park to look at some of his work. We aim to reproduce these at school! We hope to invite you into our gallery once our sculptures are complete.
In Maths we will continue to work on addition, subtraction and place value. We will also focus on other areas of maths including time, measurement and direction.
