Welcome to Class 1

My name is Mrs Fahy and I work in Class 1 with Mrs McNichol, who covers PPA and Mrs Silverwood who is in the class as a TA three mornings a week.

Phonics is a key focus of Year 1. We do a 20 mins daily using Letters and Sounds and Phonics Bug.

Much of our learning in Class 1 is cross curricular and each topic is supported by engaging displays and exciting role play areas.

Topics include:

The ‘Here and There’ topic uses our geography skills to locate where we compare living in Lowdham a village in the Uk with the King's Village in Northern Ghana .  Light Festivals in Autumn 2 enables children to develop their understanding of different faiths and how they are celebrated. We also put on a great Nativity performance with Class Reception and Class 2. ‘Toys in the Past’ is a history focused topic and we look at sources to work out if toys are old or new and where they would fit on a time line, In English we read a number of texts focused on toys. We also use our IT skills to take photos and type sentences to write a non-fiction class book about our favourite toys. During Spring 2 our topic is ‘Animals including humans’ we learn about the skeleton and our senses and identify what groups animals belong to and whether they are herbivores, carnivores or omnivores. In English we look at books about crocodiles including the Enormous Crocodile by Roald Dahl and teach how lines and dots can create patterns for crocodiles. Our Jungle topic is linked to some delightful Elmer stories and learning about how plants grow and different habitats. Finally in Summer 2 we learn about the Seaside and Holidays which enables us to develop our geography skills and identify both human and physical features. We also read the Lighthouse Keepers books which inspire some lovely lighthouse mosaics.

 

 We hope children feel welcome, happy and secure as they transition from Reception to KS1. Lessons start to become more structured but children are still given opportunities to use shared computers and outside areas.
