Spring Term 2018

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

A very warm welcome indeed to Year 1 and to the Elm Class page!

Please do visit our class page to see what we have been learning about and of course feel free to speak to me about anything regarding your child or their learning, my door is always open.

To a fantastic year in Elm Class,

With many thanks,

Miss Pope


We will begin this term by looking at the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears in our Talk for Writing unit. Everyone in Year 1 was excited to discover that somebody had left a messy table with three different sized bowls and porridge everywhere…


During our Phonics lessons, we will be following the Phonics Play scheme of work which provides exciting and engaging lessons on a daily basis.


This Spring term we will begin our Maths lessons looking at addition and subtraction (within 20). We will also be looking at place value (within 50) and measurement (length, height, weight and volume).


In Science, we have moved onto our spring topic of plants which the children have so far enjoyed, already being able to name lots of different plants! Everyone has also contributed to the class discussion of what we want to learn about within our topic of plants!


In Topic, we will be looking at our town Ellesmere Port with Miss Martin and we will be starting History this term with myself and we will be looking at changes within living memory!


In connection with Topic, we will be creating some exciting art work on our town with Miss Martin! The class will be creating different types of art work whilst also gaining a better understanding of our town through our Topic work. Please bring in some old clothes that you wouldn’t mind your child getting dirty for their Art lessons.


This term we will be looking at Christianity and we will bring our R.E lessons to life through lots of exciting role play and drama!


Following on from Reception, we will be continuing our P.E lessons with Premier Sports who will be providing some fun-filled, exciting P.E lessons this term! Please ensure that your child has their P.E kit with them every Wednesday and Thursday and could you also ensure that their name is on every item of their kit- many thanks.

Please read with your child every night as it fuels the mind and imagination! Reading records must be filled in every time you have read with your child and these will be checked on a daily basis. Reading books will be changed twice a week.

Thank you very much for visiting our class page!
