Welcome to Paris Class

'Bonjour!' A very warm welcome to our Year 1 webpage. We are named Paris, the capital city of France which is an inspiration for our literacy, numeracy and topic work this year.

This term we will be exploring ‘toys’ both past and present making comparisons and discussing the reasons for the change in toys through the years. We will be exploring a range of fiction and non-fiction texts in literacy and using a range of media to create our own posters, pictures and paintings in art.

If your child has anything relevant to this topic from home, and you are happy with them to bring it in, please feel free to let your child do so.

We are very excited to be exploring the changes in the weather as we go from summer into autumn. The children will be creating their own weather diaries as well as designing and making rain and wind gauges.

In Maths this term we are learning about place value, using a variety of resources to enable the children to understand tens and ones and the value of a number.

Both myself and Mrs Myers are very excited to welcome Butterworth class into Paris class. We have a range of exciting activities and learning for the children to do, making the transition into year one a happy one. We shall be continuing child initiated learning twice a week during this term, allowing the children to explore and investigate, learning through their play.

Please do not hesitate to come and see me as I am aware that transition periods can be unsettling for many children. If you are unable to come into class, please ring the school office and I will contact you as soon as possible.

I am looking forward to an exciting year ahead with Paris class, helping them learn and grow into happy, independent children.

“Children are a gift from the Lord”

Psalm 127:3
