Class teacher: Mrs Dawes
In Cedar class we pride ourselves on our friendly, caring nature to each other.
We are striving to become confident, independent learners who enjoy a challenge.
In Cedar class we are on an exciting Learning Journey. We work hard in lots of creative ways,
we are kind to our crew, and we have lots of fun.
We will be reading Julia Donaldson's 'Superworm' and making links to our Food for Life topic. We will be writing character profiles, setting descriptions, and innovating the story. We will also be writing evocative Autumn poems, focusing on using our senses.
In the spring term we be focusing on traditional tales! We will look at the story Little Red Riding hood and Jack and the Beanstalk.
Our Summer term will focus on stories relating to our geography topics all about the seaside! We will be writing a recount of our trip to the seaside and looking at some popular stories, such as the lighthouse keepers lunch.
We will be working on number bonds, addition and subtraction, 2D shape, telling time to the hour and half hour, and money. We will also be focusing on building our mental maths skills to support our KS1 SATs tests.
Learning Challenge Curriculum
In Science we are learning about how to grow healthy food, and what plants needs to grow. We will be inviting Year 1 to share a sandwich made with healthy salad. We have also found out about why worms are so great.
Our salad was delicious and healthy.
In Geography we will be learning about our local area, and finding out about our cultural traditions in the Potteries.
In Art we will find out about David Hockney and create photo collages of our school, inspired by his work.
