King's Ford Infant School And Nursery

'Where everyone matters and every day counts'

Welcome to Orange Class.


Welcome to Orange Class. We are a class of cheerful, enthusiastic Year 1 children. Our teachers are  called Mrs Saunders and  Mrs Fitzgerald and our LSA's  are called Miss Clark and Mrs Weaver.

This term our topic is called ‘Heroes and Villains’. We will be looking at heroes in our homes and the wider community. We will be learning how to use simple mechanisms in our design projects in order to make a superhero fly!

We will investigate different artists especially Andy Warhol.  We will have a go at writing for a range of purposes. We will learn to count, read and write numbers.

We will continue to practise our phonemes daily and play lots of games to help us learn them. We will also continue to take part in ‘dough disco’ so our muscles in our hands will become even stronger.

In P.E. we will focus on dance and gymnastics. We will have P.E on Tuesday and Thursday so please make sure your child has the correct P.E kit on those days.

This is just a small taster of what your child will be doing in their first term in Year 1. Please look at the topic grid for some more examples and Curriculum coverage.

Please feel free to contact me if you wish to discuss your child or the Curriculum content and I will be happy to arrange a time to speak with you.

Today the children learnt about Internet Safety - please see the presentation


Please see this terms topic plan 

If you have any other questions about our learning then come and speak to Mrs Saunders or Miss Fitzgerald.
