Belton (Yr 1)
Welcome to Belton Class!
This year Belton Class Team is led by Mrs Jagger (Mon-Thurs) and Ms Cummings (Fri). We are supported by Mrs See (TA) and Mrs Want (HLTA).
We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year break and are now ready for the next term!
In terms 3 and 4 we are going to ‘AFRICA’. We will be going on safari, looking at all the animals sorting and classifying them, just like real zoologists!
As Geographers we will be taking a in-depth look at Kenya comparing and contrasting where and how the Masai people live.
In literacy we will be writing letters, riddles, descriptions of people and settings, retelling stories and reading many traditional tales from Africa.
As Artists we will creating African silhouette pictures, thinking about how to mix different shades of paints and creating our own animal painting, looking carefully at the patterns on their fur and skin. We will also be tasting lots of exotic fruits to design and create our own fruit salad, inspired by the story Handa’s Surprise.
We will continue to look at Judaism in the family and comparing the Jewish family to our own as part of our RE topic.
Belton class PE is now on a Wednesday and Friday. However, we do ask that your child's PE kit is in school every day, including trainers and outdoor kit as well as a change of socks. Please ensure your child’s kit is clearly named, along with their uniform. Thank you.
If you have any experiences or artefacts that you could share with us about Africa please let us know as we would love to have you visit our class and tell us all about them.
For further information of the subject area coverage please see the Belton Class page on the website.
Finally, we are having a real push on reading this term, please can you hear your child read 4 times a week and sign their reading record. Your child will then gain a house point and perhaps another dip in the jar! Many thanks Belton Class Team
Please do come and see us if you have a concern about your child and we will do the same. There will be opportunities to look at their learning and progress along the way.
Mrs Jagger and Ms Cummings
