Year 1 - Squirrels
Welcome to the Squirrels Class Page
In Talk for Writing, we are learning the story of Little Red Riding Hood. The children will develop a good understanding of the plot, setting and characters and will eventually write their own version of the story. You can watch this animated version at home and ask your child questions to deepen their understanding.
We are learning all about place value in Maths. Children will learn how to count accurately, represent number in different ways and develop their understanding of the number system up to 100. You can practise counting to 100 with your child using this fun video:
The theme for this term's topic is 'Stories from Around the World'. Through this topic, children will be learning about Van Gogh's artwork, local History and animal classifications.
Here is an information PowerPoint which you may wish to look through with your child. How much can your child remember about Van Gogh from our lessons?
Other important information:
Our PE day is Thursday. For PE, we wear red shorts or jogging bottoms in cold weather, white t-shirt with St Michael's badge, plimsolls/trainers. The children can come to school in their PE kits but please make sure that any jewellery, including earrings, is left at home.
Every Monday and Wednesday we visit our wildlife area in school. The children wear coats and wellies when we visit the area.
