Class 1 Page

Class 1 (Reception and Year 1) 2020/21


In Class 1 there are 24 wonderful children who have a great imagination and a sense of fun.  Mrs. Turner and Mrs. Howell have the pleasure of teaching them with help from Mrs. Myers and Mrs. Raddage.

Autumn 2020

This term the whole school have a History themed topic.  Our topic is 'Old and New'.  The key question that we will keep coming back to is 'Are old things more important than new things?''  This topic is based on the key concepts of Curiosity, Tradition, Value, Beauty and Love.  The children will travel back in time to learn about toys and books from the past. 

They will discover the work of Mackenzie Thorpe and will recreate some of his art work.


The children will enjoy many different texts that have been carefully chosen to complement this topic. 


Throughout the school we use White Rose to support our Maths curriculum.  Below is the long term Maths plan for Class 1.



Recommended Reads

Below are two files packed with brilliant books for children to read. Whilst we may not have several copies of every book in school, we have put together this list as a place for both children and parents to go when they need a little help finding that next guaranteed-to-be-awesome read. I promised that you can’t go wrong by choosing any. There is also a checklist which you can print and keep track of how many you have read. Happy reading!

Measure in Maths - March 2020

This week in Maths we have been learning about measuring length.  The children have learnt how to compare lengths, how to measure with cubes and how to measure in centimetres and metres.  The children decided that they wanted to measure the trees in the woods so they took their tape measures with them and did just that! One child taught us how to measure the height of a tree with a square piece of paper.
