In 1B our teacher is Mrs Salisbury. In our class we also have Mrs English and Mrs Wood who help us with our learning in the mornings and on some afternoons. We do Maths, English and Phonics every morning and other subjects, such as Geography, Music, Art, History, ICT and PE in the afternoons.
There is an element of play based learning in our lessons and we work in different groups throughout the day, gradually becoming more independent in our written work over the two years that we spend in this class. We sing lots of songs to help us remember important things and often play learning games on the interactive white board. Mrs Salisbury loves neat handwriting and we learn to write in cursive, making sure that our letters are correctly sized and joined up.
Our first topic this year is Explorers and Invaders. We will be learning all about famous pirates and using some stories about pirates to inspire our writing. We will be focusing on number patterns and using a 100 square and will then be looking at the properties of 2D and 3D shapes.
