Welcome to Class 1!

Class 1 enjoyed learning about the different festivals celebrated throughout the year.  We have another exciting half term ahead. Our topic this term is ‘Terrible Trolls’. We will learn about the different types of everyday materials and some of their properties through practical investigations. We will then apply our skills and knowledge to design and build a purposeful bridge/structure for a troll. Which bridge will be the strongest and why?


What we are learning this term


In English, we will be learning about traditional tales, focusing on the classic story of ‘The Three Billy Goat’s Gruff’. Through this narrative, we will explore adjectives and exclamation marks. We will revisit question marks and conjunctions and continue to apply capital letters and full stops to our sentences. We will also be learning about information texts.


In Phonics, we will be starting phase 5. We are practising our segmenting and blending skills daily to help us become fantastic readers and writers. A word list will be sent home every Friday. Please support your child with reading the given words. If you need any support with helping your child, please do not hesitate to speak to me after school. I am always happy to chat.



In Maths, we will be learning about recognising and knowing the value of coins, focusing on time, number and place value and addition and subtraction. It is important that children know their number bonds to 10 to help them calculate. We would be grateful if you could support your child at home with their mental recall of facts.


PE this term is on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Please make sure that your child has the correct PE kit. Please make sure anybody who wears earrings that you take them out on PE days or apply tape over them.



Children will receive homework every Friday and is due in on the following Tuesday. 

Reading Please ensure you listen to your child read and fill in their home reading record.

Thank you for your continued support, Miss Patel and Mrs Shaikh
