Welcome to the Year One Class Page

Spring Term

This term, we are doing lots of exciting new learning. In our classroom, we are fully embracing Spring!

As part of our History topic, we will be learning about the history of St Thomas'. This will be a very interesting topic and we can't wait to learn about our school!

As part of our English topic, we will be looking at patterns and rhymes. We will be looking closely at different rhymes including The Gingerbread Man.

In Art, we have already been busy creating our self portraits. We are practising drawing our self portrait in our sketchbooks before we create a final piece.

Also in Art this term, we are going to be looking at the work of sculpture artist Andy Goldsworthy. He uses the natural surroundings to create his work. We are also working on a whole school Art project which we are all excited about.

 We sure are going to be artists this term!

In Science, we are focusing on the topic of Animals including Humans! I think we are going to really enjoy this topic. We are animal crazy in Year One!

Our Daily Chick Update

On Monday 25th February, the eggs arrived to our classroom. 9 eggs were delivered and left in the incubator.

On Tuesday 26th February, there started to be cracks in a few of the eggs. At 5:30pm, the first chick hatched. Another chick came about 6:30pm. They were moved to the brooder box to sleep.

On Wednesday 27th February when I arrived into school at 7am, 4 more had hatched and joined their other chick brothers and sisters. Whilst I was in school on Wednesday morning before the children came into school, 2 more hatched. The 8 chicks were put in the brooder box to fluff up their feathers. Before we left school on Wednesday night, the last chick hatched.

We have been doing a chick diary in school. The chicks have been a wonderful addition to our learning. We have watched them hatch and grow over the last 11 days. It is great news to say that somone I know has kept 4 of the chicks and they have gone to their new home heart

See below for a time lapse video of what it looks like when the chicks hatch. It really is wonderful!






A polite reminder

Homework is set every Friday. Please can you ensure your child has completed their homework ready to hand in the following Wednesday. Sometimes the homework set is research for our context lessons on a Wednesday.
