The teachers in Year 1 Fox Class are Mrs. Snowden, Mrs. Barnard and Miss. Jukes. We will help you with anything you need to know or any problems you may have in Year 1.
Our class is named after the author Mem Fox. Merrion Frances "Mem" Fox, is an Australian writer of children's books. She lives in Adelaide, South Australia. Have you read any of her books?
In Fox Class, we love to read and ensure that all children have exposure to a wealth of engaging books from different authors. Books can take you any place that you can imagine and even to places that you can't! They give you a wonderful insight into other cultures, experiences, people and places without even leaving your seat. In Fox Class we encourage children to value and understand others and gain a greater understanding of the world around them through their wide reading experiences.
This term we are learning about ourselves. In Art, we will learn about the work of Picasso and Vincent Van Gogh and paint our own self portraits in these styles. In science, we will name the main body parts and explore our five senses. Please refer to the detailed curriculum information for Term 1 (see link below).
This term, PE is on Monday and Friday and children should come to school wearing their PE kit - dark blue / black plain shorts / jogging bottoms, plain white T-shirt / school jumper and trainers / daps.
Please sign up for Google Classroom and GoRead (reading App) - any problems, please contact Mrs McCosh in the school office. Home learning will be posted on Google Classroom every Friday and you will need to submit before the following Wednesday. If you have any questions, please see me after school and I'll be happy to help!
