Welcome to Class One!


Foundation Stage 2 (Reception) and Year 1

Class Teachers: Mrs G. Bottomley, Mrs J. Hutchinson

Information about what we are learning: Autumn term 1.


This half term our topic is Toys. We will be learning about toys from the past, different materials that toys are made from and making our own sock puppets.


In English Foundation Stage children will be learning to write our names, learning Set 1 sounds from the Read Write Inc programme in Phonics, listening and responding to stories in different ways and learning to write words, sounding out using phonics to spell.


Year 1 children will continue to learn Set 2 sounds in Phonics, to read and write simple sentences, to form letters accurately and to use spaces between words. They will also do guided reading every week in a group and learn spellings for a test every Friday.


In Maths all children will be learning or consolidating number recognition to 20, to write numbers, to count out a number of objects accurately and to order and compare numbers, using terms such as more and less. They will learn to name and describe 2D and 3D shapes and use them to make patterns and build models.
