Welcome to Tigers Class

Welcome back.  We hope you had an enjoyable summer holiday break and your child is looking forward to an exciting year ahead in Year 1. We are looking forward to working in partnership with you to ensure they make admirable progress and enjoy their year in Tigers’ Class.

Our teacher is Mrs Dodman and Mrs Norden will be our Teaching Assistant. Mrs Norden will be with us most lessons: supporting the children in class and delivering interventions.  On Monday afternoons (2.30pm - 3.15pm) Mrs Norden and Mrs Cannon will together teach the class RE and on Friday afternoons teach Art and PSHE.

We are also fortunate to have Mrs Washbrook working with us this term as she trains to become a teacher.

This half term in English we will be learning about the Traditional Tale – The Tree Little Pigs.

In Maths we will be learning about; shapes, to count partition & calculate, add & subtract and how to  investigate problems.

In Geography we will be reflecting on our summer holiday and discussing the location of the different places we visited.  We will identify the oceans and continents of the world.  If you would like to send in any photos or artefacts from the places you visited, I am sure the children would love to see them. 

In Science we will be comparing objects and what materials they are made of. 

Our History topic this term is ‘Toys’.  We will be looking at toys our grandparents played with in the past.  If you know of someone who could share their experiences/ artefacts to enrich our curriculum, please contact me or Mrs Norden.  The children love to hear their stories.
