Welcome to Class 4
We are a Year 1 class consisting of 23 children.
We all enjoy school and our favourite things to do are Maths, playing in the provision areas and P.E. Our teacher’s name is Mr. Roberts and he likes doing sports, especially football, he is an Everton fan.
Here are some of the things we will be studying this term:
Writing descriptive paragraphs about our current topic book Journey by Aaron Becker, using adjectives and connectives to make our sentences more interesting.
We use Inspire Maths in our class and we are studying Mass, comparing the weights of different objects and using non-standard units to measure.
We are also going to be looking at picture graphs, making our own and finding information from others.
Finally we will be looking at numbers up to 40. Adding them and subtracting them using the re-grouping method and the whole – part - part method.
We will be looking at different religions from around the world and some of the things they celebrate. We will begin by looking at a Christian Baptism.
Knowledge and Understanding of the World
This term we will be examining maps. We will find Broughton on a map of Wales and then find Wales on a map of the world. We will begin making our own map, firstly of our own classroom and then of the school.
We will be using simple algorithms to program a robot on screen and in real life. We will be writing our own programs and following those of others. We might even have a go at debugging some programs if we can.
