Class 5 – Y1



Welcome back to a new school year group


It has been lovely to get to know all the children this first week. They have all shown wonderful behaviour and have been trying so hard in their learning. It has been lovely to see how good they are at following the Sitwell Superhero rules and many children have already reached the stars this week on the rocket. They have been to celebrate this by going to see Mrs Peart and receiving a sticker. She has been very proud of them 😊


The topic this term is called 'Sun Sea and Sand' and is an opportunity to find out about the features of the landscape both human and physical by the coast and to compare these with the features of a town such as Rotherham. This learning is part of the Geography curriculum. Our visit to Cleethorpes is an opportunity to experience these features first hand and be immersed in their learning.


Also in Geography we will be learning about the United Kingdom and the four countries within the UK. The children will have to be able to name all four!


In Maths we have been learning to count amd recognise numbers to 100. The tricky numbers are the ones where we have been bridging 10s. 


In Literacy we have also been looking at ficton texts and are reading The Storm Whale. There are some links to science that we are going to be exploring. 


As Autumn approaches we will be observing and commenting on the changes we see and notice aboht the weather and the natural world around them.


We look forward to discussing your child's progress in the first half term after the october half term break. If you have any questions prior to this please have a chat whenever you need.
