Year 1 - Potter

Welcome to Potter Class
with Miss McKenzie, Mrs Dabb & Ms Gamble


This half term we are learning about Traditional Tales


English & Phonics - We will have daily Read Write Inc sessions to practice our phonics and reading words.

In English lessons we will be retelling some Traditional Tales and writing our own.

Maths - We are learning the names and properties of different shapes.  Also we are continuing to work on addition and subtraction.

Science - Our new topic is plants. We will find out what they need to grow and what the different parts of a plant are called.

Art - We are learning about Van Gogh and creating our own sunflower pictures.

Computing - We'll explore the basics of programming.

PE - We will be working our basic movements skills; jumping, running, throwing and catching as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination. Our PE Days are Monday & Wednesday. However, these days may change at any time so please have your PE kit in school every day.



Reading books - We will change books on a Mon and Wed but please bring them to school every day. Please listen to your child read 5x a week and they will earn a RED award. If they do this for 6 weeks, they will win a special prize.

Library books - We go to the school library on a Tuesday.

Maths homework - Will be set every Friday and must be returned by the following Wed. The children will be given 1 page from their Maths homework booklet to do.

Spellings - 5 words will be sent home every Friday and the children will be tested on the following Fri.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you for your support.
