Key Stage 1



Our work- Spring Term:

During the first half of the spring term Turquoise class have been learning about story telling. We have learnt and rewritten the story of The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch by Ronda and David Armitage. The children have really enjoyed learning about the special adjectives the authors used to describe the characters, setting and nouns in the story.

We have also been enjoying our topic - The Seaside. We have discovered technical language and specific locations names for places we find at the seaside E.G Pier, harbour, shore, beach etc.

In Maths we have extended our knowledge in geometry to include the properties of 2d and 3D shapes. We have learnt words such as edge, face, side, vertices, and what they mean in a mathematical context.

We are ending this half term learning about the Easter story in R.E and have been improving our fitness in our P.E lessons with Josh.


Our work- Autumn Term:  

We have learnt about place value, addition and subtraction and money in Maths. 

Poetry, fairy tales and Florence Nightingale in English. 

Guy Fawkes and why we remember him and his plot on November 5th. We made some beautiful fireworks collages, drew the scene in our computing lessons and learnt facts about the plot.
