Year 1 Class 5 Mrs Dean


The children really enjoyed the Easter bonnet parade this morning.  They were very proud of their creations.

Our topic this half term is 'Marvellous Materials'.

This week and next week we are learning about materials such as wood, metal, plastic and fabric.

For homework the children have each been asked to complete a materials hunt at home.

Next week in mathematics we will be working on missing number problems (e.g. __+5=16).

Next week in English we will be writing our own stories inspired by 'The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig'.

WB: 19/11/18

We have been really enjoyed our forest school sessions.  We have made tree nymphs, rainbow sticks and this week we even managed to toast some marshmallows on the camp fire.

This week we went back in time with the 'Real history Alive' theatre company.  It was amazing to learn all about the great fire of London from 'Samuel Pepys' and Daisy.

We even had time to dress as 17th century children and learn how to square dance.  Poor Mrs Dean was infected with the plague but fortunately felt better by lunch time.

Week beginning 15/10/18

What an exciting half term we have had!

Have a look at these wonderful photographs from our 'animals take over visit'.

Welcome to Mrs Dean's class page.

We will keep you up to date on all that is going on in our classroom.

Week beginning 24/9/18.

This half term our topic is possums, penguins and pigs.

We will be learning all about different animals including mammals, reptiles, birds, amphibians, insects and fish.

The children have been learning how to work out  what category an animal belongs to.  For example, mammals are usually covered in fur or hair and reptiles are usually covered in scales.

Lots of children chose library books about animals.  Why not see what kind of animals you can spot?

In mathematics we have been working on combing tens and ones.  For example, 3 tens and 4 ones equals 34.  All of the children have been given homework to help them explore this concept at their own level.

The children have really enjoyed their P.E lessons with Mr Tierney our premier sports coach.  We have been working on our balancing skills.
