Class 1

Year 1 Mrs Whitmore


Welcome to Class One's page


Out of the Egg


In this topic we will be using stories such as 'The Ugly Duckling' and the 'Emperor's Egg'. We will be creating our own 'eggs' and a creature to go in it. We will also be looking at non-fiction books and how they are used.


In Science we will be looking at how we group different animals. We will be having a visit from Zoolab who will be bringing in a range of animals in for us to learn about and group.


In art we are looking at the artist Martisse and using his artwork as inspiration for our own art.


Questions we would like to answer this term:


How many different ways can we group animals?

What do animals have that are the same? What do they have that are different?

What changes can we see in our local environment?

Where can we look to find information?

How do animals look after their eggs?

What happens when an egg hatches? 







In the Secret Garden


In this topic we will be using stories such as Jack and the Beanstalk and Peter Rabbit as a basis for our Literacy work, writing about the characters and writing our own stories.


In Science we will be looking at plants. The children will be planting their own sunflowers and observing the changes.


In Geography, we will be looking at where in the world you may find different plants and birds and creating maps for a 'Secret Garden'.


Questions we hope to answer


  • How do plants grow?
  • Do plants drink?
  • How do seeds turn into plants?
  • How do seeds spread?
  • Where do flowers grow?
  • What makes a good birds's nest?
  • Who is Georgia O'Keefe?
