Class 1

Welcome to Class 1! In Class 1 we have children from Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. 
We love reading stories in Class 1 and have a daily story time, which the children vote for. We use stories in our English lessons to help us learn new vocabulary and apply these in our writing. We also use story maps to help write our own stories.
We will be using RWI to teach Set 1, 2 or 3 sounds depending on the children's assessed levels and we will use our phonics to help decode and read RWI books. Please read with your child every day and record the reading in the home/school diary. Your support in this will make a huge difference to how your child values books and reading, and will impact their learning not only in reading but in every area of the curriculum.
Our Maths this term in Year 1 will involve place value to 50 and learning about length and height. 
Year 2 will be working on multiplication and division with the 2, 5 and 10 times tables, beofre moving on to measures looking at length and height. We will have lots of opportunities to use concrete resources, such as numicon and base 10 to support our learning and really develop our understanding and mathematical thinking. Reception children will  continue to explore the composition of numbers within 10, develop their understanding of equal and not equal and compare numbers.  
We continue to develop our maths talk in Class 1 and love to explain what we know and why! 
In Class 1 KS1 children are explicitly taught all curriculum areas (please see our Term overview for more details) but will also have the opportunity to revisit or extend their learning through activities provided in continuous provision. Reception children will also have both teacher directed tasks and ample opportunities to learn through play and exploring, active learning, creating and thinking critically.
