Topaz class love practical activities, having fun whilst learning and have been trying hard to to give up.
This term our Topic is ‘Planet Earth’. Just like David Attenborough we will be exploring the animals and their habitats in a variety of places including the Arctic, the desert, the rain forest and under water. In English we have been reading The Polar Bear Son and writing our own versions of the story. We will also be writing an information text using what we have learnt in Science and Geography. In Maths we're learning place value, time, addition and subtraction and to measure length and height.
Topaz have PE lessons on Monday and Wednesday. This term we are learning dance, tag rugby and gym. It is essential we have both our indoor and outdoor PE kits in school on these days. Please ensure that your child’s earrings have been removed and long hair has been tied up on these days. Also, please make sure children are wearing clothes that children can easily change in and out of which are named.
Topaz class are a Year 1 class who are full of enthusiasm and eagerness to try new things.
This term our first Topic is ‘Travelling through Time’. We have been exploring the past and have enjoyed investigating objects and their uses as they look so different from what we use now. In English we have been reading stories by the same author, Nick Butterworth. We have enjoyed learning about the adventures of Trixie the Witches cat and Percy the Park Keeper. Next half term we will learning about Guy Fawkes. Also there will be a very special remembrance week to commemorate 100 years since the end of the First World War.
We enjoy practical activities and venturing outside to stimulate our learning. We try our best and do our best to not give up when things get tricky because with practise we can do anything we set our minds to. Our favourite things to do are sing and dance to help our learning.
Topaz have PE lessons on Wednesday and Friday. This term we are learning football skills and developing our cross country running skills, so it is essential we have both our indoor and outdoor PE kits in school on these days. Please ensure that your child’s earrings have been removed and long hair has been tied up on these days.
