Year 1E


Welcome to Year 1E, Mrs Earl’s class! What a transition from Foundation Stage to Year 1 it has been, and I must say, we have settled in to the new curriculum and day to day routines beautifully! Our provision project this term is to transform our outdoor shack in to our cosy reading den- slowly but surely!


Our current English topic is fairy and traditional tales, recounts and instructions, and in our second half of Autumn term, we will cover fiction/non-fiction texts and poems. We  had great fun making our own marvellous medicine for George’s grandma for world book day!


In maths, we have been working with place value, grouping, counting forwards and backwards and 2 more and 2 less.


Our local area!

Our current Geography topic is all about finding out where we live and our  local area! We even found Christ the King on a satellite google map of Thornaby!


Our art topic this term is pencil and paint techniques, where are looking at different artists work and their techniques that they use.  We have created our own version of Kandinsky’s circles so far! Our music topic is keeping the rhythm, which really focuses on being able to keep a repeated beat and keep in rhythm with music. What a busy but exciting term Autumn term will be!
