Senior 1 Termly Focus - Autumn 2019
Posted: Sep 19, 2019 by: charlottedowson on: Senior 1 Termly Focus
This is an exciting year for Senior 1 with lots of changes to staff and children. Some children have moved up into Senior 2 and we have new arrivals in both children and staff. Staffing now consists of me (Tom) as the class teacher and our dedicated LSAs – Sean, Mercedes, Carole and Jade. We have enjoyed a great start to the new school year so we are now filled with optimism!
The autumn term topic is ‘A night at the museum’. This will initially focus our attention on Ancient Egypt. We will be building, investigating, drawing, painting and writing around this topic and all the amazing architecture and mysteries that it possesses. In English lessons, we are aiming to improve reading fluency and spelling accuracy through focused phonics lessons and continued regular reading. There will also be a big push on handwriting and pencil control to improve writing fluency. Maths will be mainly focusing on place value and addition and subtraction. This will lead onto the use of money in practical situations.
On top of this there will be ‘life skills’ lessons involving shopping and baking, visits to a community coffee shop and regular work on how to stay safe. P.E. lessons will be on Tuesday afternoons and there will be trips out to sporting events. Hopefully, there will also be a trip to Hull to see some Ancient Egyptian artefacts and a real mummy.
The staff of Senior 1 looks forward to creating a safe, nurturing and engaging environment for the children to work in. If you have any questions or worries now or at any point in the school year, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Welcome to Senior 1. Our team consists of Tom Cooper (Teacher), Sean (L4 Learning Support Assistant), Mercedes, Celia, Carole and Tylem (L2 LSAs). All members of the team work hard to offer a nurturing and supportive learning environment for the children to thrive and grow.
