Mrs Goodwin, Mrs Bashir and Mr Khalid would like to welcome you to Class 1!

 Our topic for Summer 2 is

Sporting Heroes!

 

During this topic we will be exploring what it means to be a hero as well as learning about different sports. We will be learning about how to stay healthy and the effects of exercise on our bodies.

 

This week we started our topic with a Philosophy for Children session based on this episode of 'What's the Big Idea?'...

In English we will be reading Rainbow Fish to the Rescue and we will examine how the author has used vocabulary to describe an underwater setting. We will be learning how to write an information text as well as instructions.  

In maths we will be looking at the properties of 3D shapes and also how to make quarter, half and three quarter turns. We are going to be practicing using a number line to add and subtract and will go on to learn how to add larger numbers using a 100 square. 

We are privileged to have Mr Khalid working alongside Mrs Goodwin as the class teacher until the end of June. Mr Khalid is on a final teaching placement as part of his PGCE at the University of Manchester before qualifying as a teacher in July. The children have already made him very very welcome. 

Class 1's next assembly will be on Friday 20th July at 9.00am in the hall. There will be a chance to come back class afterwards to chat to the teachers and look at children's work. We hope to see you there!
