Welcome to Orange Class.
Welcome back to the Summer Term 2018
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.
We have already started the term by investigating plants. We have been putting our gardening skills to the test by planting containers and raised beds in our learning garden with a combination of vegetables and flowering plants. We already have some signs of success!
We will then be looking at seaside environments and through a series of lively and interesting activities the children in Yellow and Orange class will build their knowledge of oceans and seas around the world. They will begin to understand the different environments these represent and how they affect life on land as well as at sea. They will develop their geographical skills and build up their knowledge of food chains, exploration, and evolution!
Research the development of boats and ships, changes in their power sources, changing length of voyages, the history of regattas and the life of seafarers. Paint, make sketches, write journal entries, use code and write ship telegrams. Carry out floating and sinking experiments, construct boats and finally put on a regatta with sandwiches and prizes!
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.
Thank you for your cooperation.
If you have any other questions about our learning then come and speak to Mrs Saunders or Miss Fitzgerald.
