Pott Shrigley Class 1 2018 - 2019

Mrs Blackwell


Welcome back to Class 1!

I hope you all have had a wonderful summer holiday and are ready to start the new school year.

The teaching in Class 1 is shared between Mrs Blackwell at the beginning of the week  and Ms Bromley at the end of the week. We will also be assisted in the mornings by our Teaching Assistant Mrs Novacki.

I especially want to welcome our newcomers to Class 1 - I know the familiar faces in Years 2 and 3 will help you all settle in over the first few weeks as you settle in to new routines and more challenging work.

The first thing you will notice is that the class has had a bit of a makeover during the summer holidays so it will be a fresh new classroom for everyone.

It is always important for the children to familiarise themselves with the equipment and resources in the class so we will spend some time initially ensuring all the children know where to find things so they can begin to become more independent in their learning.

Our topic this half term is Oceans and Seas - you may remember that at the end of the summer term I asked the children that if they visit a beach in the UK or indeed abroad they can bring in any mementoes to share their experiences with the class. We will make sure we locate the beaches either on our map of the UK or further afield. We will be discussing beach habitats and the features of our coasts and how important it is to protect this environment from plastic pollution. 

In literacy we will be reading a selection of sea themed books - we begin with Flotsam by David Weisner which is a beautiful wordless picture book. The children will be using their imaginations to create their own back stories.

In maths we will begin with number and place value - the children will work at different levels according to their understanding.

We will take our learning outside too -Forest School on Friday afternoons will allow the children to access different skills and learning experiences.

It will be a very busy and fulfilling term!!
