Class One

Psalm 145:9 The Lord is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made.


In Class One we are all loving our new topic as we have to be Explorers! We have a new Role Play Area where we get the chance to go to outer space – there are no limits. Whilst we’re onboard the spaceship we have to collect samples from distant planets and search through the rocks for new minerals and things. We also have to work the ship computer to make sure we don’t get lost. And we have recently started to blast-off into space!We are also trying to be explorers in all our life. Our homework asks us to go out and be explorers – perhaps exploring the cupboard under the stairs, a distant corner of the garden, looking what lurks under a rock… we are looking forward to hearing each others’ stories and sharing photos.

In RE we are thinking about the Bible, we are just starting to explore it and know that it is God’s word. Next week we will be reading more stories from it.

In maths we have been looking at number lines, rounding to 10, and talking about one bigger and one smaller.

In English we are looking at non-fiction texts on space, we have been looking at some of the key features of these texts (captions, pictures, diagrams, index and contents) and also thinking about the kind of language that is used and how it is structured.

Our Topic is Christopher Columbus.


Outdoor learning is an important part of our development.
