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 ‘What an adventure!’
In English we will explore story settings through drama and art activities.
We will make our own clay characters and design 3 d settings for them.
We will use adjectives to describe our characters and explore the different characters found in stories. We will focus on Little Red Riding Hood and engage in media linked activities through the animation, Hook-winked.
We will make sliding pictures in DT using simple mechanisms.
In maths we will continue to explore addition and subtraction along with many investigations. We will learn a range of songs linked to our theme and use percussion instruments to add rhythm and texture.
In science we will investigate animals and explore ways to classify them.
In PE we will learn yoga poses linked to animals. In Geography we will explore the compass points and the seven continents of our world.
This is a selection of the learning activities but please look at our topic web for more examples and coverage of the curriculum for this term.
If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact me and I’ll be happy to help.
Just a reminder our P.E. sessions will continue to take place on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons so please make sure your child brings a labelled PE kit to school.  We will also be starting forest school every other Thursday morning, please refer to the leaflet sent home or look on the school website for further information on clothing and footwear requirements.
