Year 1- Seacole Class
Welcome to Seacole's class page.
Our theme across the school this term will continue with Recycling and Seacole class will be focusing on the question: 'How can we recycle?' As we have looked at the effects that littering can have on the world, this term we are going to become recycling experts!
In Science, this will link with the focus of plants. We shall become gardeners this term and plant an array of different types of plants and watch them grow. We shall be making paper by recycling old paper and using this in our artwork.
In PSHE, the children will be focusing on ‘Money’. We shall be discussing the use of money, how we get money and how we can keep our money safe. This will link to our geography learning from last term on maps through creating treasure maps to keep the pirate’s money safe.
Maths Mastery learning this term will focus on money, multiplication, capacity and volume.
The children have already been exploring money and have made their own corner shop in the classroom, where they need to solve daily problems for the shop keeper.
In English, we will be exploring different stories. As we have already looked at fairytales and fables we shall be focusing on a range of different genres of stories. We will become authors and write a range of stories with different settings and characters.
Finally, please continue to bring in any recycling goods into Seacole class for us to use for our displays and our artistic creations! We shall be making our own version of the modern artist Michelle Readers artwork associated with wildlife and nature. Please feel free to look on her website to see the type of recycling we shall need (especially the plastic fish).
