Spring Term 2018

Mrs Perrin class 1 Monday,Tuesday and Wednesday

This term our topic title is `Paddington Bear`.

This Literacy focus will cover both Geography and History from The National Curriculum.

We will compare authors and look at non fiction writing about different countries,bears and other animals.

We will consider the wider world and learn about refugees ,making links to current world affairs.

In maths we will continue to follow The National Curriculum guidlines for number and calculation using our current approach of `Mastery` for learning.

Phonics is a whole school focus each morning.This is an important term for Year 1 children who will sit the National Phonics screening test in May. Please support your child in this area over the coming weeks.

As ever we look forward to learning through fun and challenges this year in class 1!

Mrs Hadfield teaches Class 1 on Thursdays and Fridays.


In Literacy we will look first at poetry, understanding how writers can surprise us when we least expect it. We will then link to our Paddington topic and explore different sorts of non-fiction writing so that we can clearly communicate our thoughts and ideas. On Thursday afternoons, Year 2 will have a Writers' Workshop which will give them the tools they need to develop their writing skills even further.


In Maths we will continue to look at shape, space and measure with a focus on telling the time. Time can be a tricky concept for some but there are lots of free online games that can be played at home (there are links to some maths games here). The best way to help, though, is simply to tell the time with your child. Talk about what you’re doing and how you know what time it is.


To help Paddington find his way around, we will explore maps in Geography. We will look at how plants grow in Science, although growing oranges for marmalade may be a little bit too much to ask for!


Finally, all children in Class 1 will now have a spelling test every Friday starting from Friday 19thJanuary. Your child will have the spelling list for the full term and the spellings will also be available on our website.
