Welcome to Otter Class!
Welcome to Otter Class! We hope you’ve had a wonderful summer, have been keeping safe and washing those hands! In our class bubble the adults are Miss Petty, Mrs Poole and Mrs Knight. We are so excited to see you back and get cracking with learning!
This term we are thrilled to be coming back into class bubbles, seeing old friends and making some new ones.
In Otter Class we have written our Class Charter! We had a big talk about all the things that are important to keep us safe at school and came up with some ideas that we have promised to do:
We promise to;
Always have kind claws
Always have kind tails
Always play nicely
Always have fun
Always walk nicely in school
Always use our listening ears
Use our inside voices
Always try always do our best
This half term in Year 1 our theme is ‘Lost and Found’ based on a book by Oliver Jeffers. We will be joined by The Penguin and The Boy to rewrite an exciting version of the story to send to the new Year R children! We will be also reading some other exciting stories by Oliver Jeffers and looking at some penguin poetry. Keep an eye out on our windows for some of our amazing work!
In Maths we will be starting off with practising our counting to 20 and showing off with our ordering and sequencing. Towards the end of this half term we will be focusing on our addition and subtraction skills in fun and practical ways.
During the afternoons we will be creative with Art where we will be learning a new skill and style of painting, looking at the local area in Geography and using the outside space for PE! Our class PE day will be on a Friday so don’t forget to come comfy and warm in your PE kit on a Friday.
