Belton (Yr 1)
Welcome back to Term 5!
Belton Class is for Year 1 children and is led by Mrs Jagger (Mon-Wed) and Mrs Ross (Thurs-Fri). We are supported by Mrs See (TA) and Mrs Want (HLTA).
We hope you all had a wonderful Easter holiday full of fun and are now ready for the next term.
'Once Upon a Time' is the theme for this terms learning. We will be using stories such as Jack and the Beanstalk, The Three Little Pigs and Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
As Geographers we will embark on a whistle stop tour of the 7 continents of the world, stopping for a short time to visit a country in each continent. We will look at what they eat, wear, speak and how they live along with other characteristics of the county. A few places we will visit are France, China, USA, Australia and Antarctica.
In Literacy we will be writing instructions to help Jack grow a beanstalk, making up our own version of the Three Little Pigs and writing a description of the wolf to help the police locate him!
In science we will be looking at plants; what is a plant, how do they grow, what are the parts of a plant? We will carry out an investigation and hopefully grow our own beanstalks.
As Artists we will be creating our own beanstalk collages and using the laptops to create fairy tale pictures. We will also choose our own favourite fairy tale character to make a wooden spoon puppet.
In RE, we will be asking questions Diwali, how do people celebrate Diwali ad what is the significance of light. WE will continue to learn the story of Rama and Sita and act this out through drama.
For further information of the subject area coverage please see the Belton Class page on the website.
Please could we remind you to check your child’s PE kit is still clearly named and in school every Monday.
Finally, we are really urging you to hear your child read 4 times a week and sign their reading record. It really makes such an amazing difference. We also ask that you continue to help your child read and solve the alien words using their phonic knowledge skills each week. This will help to prepare them for the upcoming ‘Phonics Test’ in June. (More information will follow nearer the time)
Many thanks for all your support over the previous terms. If there are any questions please make an appointment to come in and see us, or catch one of us at the door.
Many thanks, Belton Class Team.
Mrs Jagger and Mrs Ross
