Welcome to Class 1: our bright, spacious classroom that looks out onto the school field and our forest school, and home this year to our Nursery and Reception class. Your teachers are Mrs Steele and Mrs Bishop and we have support from our wonderful teaching assistants Miss Heath and Mrs Hyett. The classroom has lots of different areas of learning to explore.
The children have had a fantastic first few days in school!
We started our learning topic with a 'super start' and went on a tour of the school. The children have enjoyed making new friends, exploring the classroom areas and meeting 'Luca' our listening teddy.
The children have been exploring lots of fun maths challenges!
The children enjoyed learning about journeys and different types of transport.
Under the Sea
Class one thoroughly enjoyed delving into the depths of the ocean at the Birmingham National Sea Life Centre. The children started off their trip with lots of singing and playing ‘Ispy’ on the bus. They were mesmerised by the city sights as we drove through Birmingham especially the tall buildings and the giant, yellow crane! The children learnt lots of interesting facts about the amazing creatures that live under the sea whilst on the trip. They learnt that an octopus can camouflage itself by changing colour or shape to keep safe from predators. The children had the opportunity to stroke a real starfish and meet the giant sting rays, turtle and sharks.
Chinese New Year
Class one have thoroughly enjoyed exploring our space topic. The children have learnt that there are eight planets in our Solar System and they orbit (travel around) the Sun. We have explored learning about our planet Earth and why it’s so special and how we can take care of it. They found out that planet Earth is the third planet from the sun. The children have made their own stars, been on space missions in the role play and even made their own rockets!
