In this year 1 class Miss Smith is the class teacher and Mrs Bell is the teaching assistant. Please come and see us if you have any questions or queries.
We have PE on a Wednesday and a Thursday, we will also be having PE outside when the weather permits. Please make sure PE bags are in school all week.
The theme this term is 'All creatures great and small', and our classroom is a zoo!. Through this theme your child will be taught:
Science: Children will be learning about parts of the human body. They will be identifying a variety of common animals, describing and comparing them. They will be investigating different animal habitats and identifying carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.
ICT: Children will be learning about how to use the internet safely and will be using the internet to conduct digital research about animals. The children will also be practising their word processing skills.
Art and Design: Children will be exploring, investigating and experimenting with a range of starting points. We will be looking at the work of the artist Monet. We will be using textiles to create our artwork.
Music: Children will be using their voices expressively through singing and reciting rhymes. They will be specifically focused on duration.
PE: Our focus areas are games and athletics this term.
RE: Children will be finding out about different places of worship.
PSHCE (Personal, social, health, citizenship education): Our focus will be on 'the world of drugs' and 'changes' as we move to our next class and year group.
Literacy: Ongoing literacy skills plus topic related work such as invitation writing and information/factual writing.
Numeracy: Ongoing numeracy skills plus topic related work such as problem solving, multiplication and division.
Any additional resources/artifacts/photographs that may support our topic would be greatly appreciated.
Speaking, listening, healthy lifestyles, community links and personal values continue to be the drivers of our curriculum. They are embedded through all subjects as well as the ethos and aims at Bottesford Infants.
NOTE: Please could all parents please remember that PE kits must be brought into school on a Monday and preferably kept there until a Friday. PE is an important part of the curriculum and all children need to take part. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you
Could all children please have their reading books and their reading diary with them every day please. Books will be changed on a Thursday unless otherwise specified. It is very important that children practise their reading on a regular basis at home and they will be rewarded for this in class. Thank you
