Class 1 is a mixed class of Year 1 and Year 2 children, we study three countries or topics each year. Most of the work covered will be linked to the countries or topics in the overview. (See the side bar for more information on our current topic).

It’s been another busy week in Class 1. We have started our new Literacy topic which is based on instructional texts. This included reading instructions for a teddy bear’s picnic and then following those instructions to hold our own picnic, Yum! The children have also shown a huge interest in our History learning based on The Great Fire of London. It is such a fascinating event and the children are keen to find out more. Here are a few pictures from our picnic.

What an exciting start Class 1 have had to the year. They have really enjoyed visiting church and playing in the playground with all of the older children. We have been so impressed with how the children have settled into the new routines and all of the children have produced some fabulous Literacy and Maths work. We’ve had a wonderful first week.
