My name is Miss Lindsay and I am the Class Teacher. We are mixed Year 1/2/3 class with 9 pupils and we are luckily enough to be supported by Mr Reilly. Our class is also supported for interventions by Mr Growney.
This term our class topic will be Gratitude. On launch day, we completed lots of fun activities around being thankful and showing gratitude to others.
Class One will be using seesaw to post weekly pictures of pupils work and to show our families our learning.

This term our topic will be Gratitude. Throughout the term, we will participate in many lessons and activities that cover subjects across the curriculum, including Science, Art, Design and technology, PSHE and R.E. All of our learning will incorporate gratitude, learning about ourselves and others and how we can show thankfulness in our school and our local community.
In Maths this term we will develop our knowledge and understanding of number and place value. We will recap some previous skills we have learnt while deepening our understanding further. We will be representing, ordering and comparing numbers up to 100, while learning to use more than and less than symbols and being able to recognise tens and units within a number.
In English this learn, we will be focusing on fundamental skills in reading and spelling. We will take part in daily phonics lessons to help us develop our reading skills and equip us with the skills to help us decode unfamiliar words.
As part of our science topic this term, will be visiting Knowsley Safari Park to learn about animal habitats and how animals adapt to live in different environments.
This term, class one will be attending Forest Schools every Tuesday for a 12 week block. Please ensure your child/charge wears the appropriate clothing and footwear each week as they will be spending a considerable amount of time outdoors. As we come into Autumn, this should include layers in case the weather changes during the day. The ground in the forest can become very muddy if there has been a lot of rain so a change of footwear or wellies would be really useful.
Throughout the term, class one will be able to experience child-led learning, where pupils can choose the activities they participate in and learn at their own pace. Some of the activities that we will take part in during forest schools is den building, bug hunting, using clay and other natural resources, making tools and working with food and fire safety skills.
A homework planner will be given out at the beginning of each term so that you can see what is expected during that time. Pupils can pick any activity to complete each week as homework, in any order.
To help your child continue to make good progress in reading, please ensure they are reading for 20 minutes at least 3 times a week. Due to the current climate, class books are unable to be sent home. As a school we have invested into using Oxford Owls, which is a website containing lots of fantastic reading books. Please contact me if you need the Oxford Owls log in details to access the reading materials.
