Class One

Welcome Class One


We hope that you have all had a fantastic summer. We are very excited for you to start with us and we can't wait to get to know you all. We are going to have so much fun making new friends, exploring and learning lots of new things. We will start the year with our first topic, Me and My Community.


During Topic 1 we will be covering and learning the following: 



We will be learning how to read and write through our phonics lessons, where we will learn lots of new sounds and harder to read and spell words.

We will apply our phonic knowledge to our literacy lessons where we will practice segmenting words and simple sentences to write. We will listen to lots of wonderful stories and retell them through story maps, sequencing and role play.
