Welcome to 1E and a brand new year!
I do hope you have all had a fantastic summer holiday and are ready for the busy year ahead...
Our topic this term is 'Time Travelers’ and we will get a sense of events that have happened historically e.g. The Great Fire of London as well as a sense of our own historical time line. We are really looking forward to hearing from the children about their own significant historical events. We will continue to update our class timeline and share with you, via twitter, as it evolves over the term.
In English we are going to be starting with understanding the use of labels and captions as a tool in books to help a reader gain even more information. As a whole school we will then continue with our Talk4Writing approach, allowing us to become even more active and creative writers.
In Maths we will be following the Maths Essentials programme and will cover everything from number sense, place value, the four operations to measurement and shape. We will also use ‘reasoning and word problems’ to get us thinking!
Science this term will be investigating the properties of materials such as glass, wood, metal, rock and plastic. We will handle, create, sort, observe and record to show that we are true scientist and value the materials we use every day.
This term, we are sure, will be fantastic and we are looking forward to all the learning that the children will be doing. We look forward to see you at the forthcoming Harvest Assembly and EYFS/KS1 Nativity thereafter.
If you have any queries or questions please do not hesitate to catch me briefly before/after school, or make an appointment via the office.
Please do keep checking back for updates, and follow us on Twitter. This will give you an excellent insight to all of the learning that 1 Earth and the rest of the school get up to.
