Class 1DN

Welcome back to another exciting school year!


We have been massively impressed with how well all your children have come back to school and settled in so quickly!


This week we are covering the sounds sh, wh, qu and ar in Phonics. We are carrying on our learning in English based on the book What the Jackdaw Saw, which can be viewed below as a video and we are going to be focussing on verbs, nouns and adjectives. In Maths we will conclude our unit on measurement and begin comparisons of quantities and number.


Next week we will be learning the sounds ea, oo, ee and ai in Phonics, carrying on our new story, What the Jackdaw Saw (by Julia Donaldson) in English and continue our comparison of quantity and number unit in Maths.


We also have Art and Computing projects that will run over the whole of the half-term.



If you ever have any questions about your child's learning or anything else, please see Mr Newton before or after school.



The Star of the Week is Olivia! Olivia has been putting her full effort in to all of her learning this week and her work ethic has been very impressive!

Our Topic this term is Going Places!


For this topic we will be focusing on Art, Geography and ICT. 



In Art, we will be looking at Sidmouth, London and the South of France. We will be using different artistic techniques to look at the different landscapes. 


In Geography, we will be looking at the different ways people travel in each of these places and how you can travel to them. 


In ICT, we will be focusing on how to use the internet safely, how to take pictures using an iPad, creating new digital content and finding information.
