Meet the teacher year 1 LB

Welcome to the 1B Class Page.

Our new topic will be the ‘In my Little Garden’ starting with an exciting entry point on Friday 28th Feb with a visit to Stratford Butterfly Farm. We will be learning about the life cycle of a butterfly and looking closely at their habitat. During this topic we will be growing lots of different, fruit,veg, herbs and flowers. We will be growing sunflowers and keeping a diary to record their growth. We will study the artist Van Gogh and create artwork in this style. As an exciting exit point we will be inviting the parents into school for our ‘Ugly Bug Ball’ on Wednesday 1st April at 2:00pm.

Our new role play is going to be fruit and veg shop, if you have anything suitable to use please send them in.

General Information:

Reading Books.

Reading books will be changed once completed at home.  Please record your child’s reading log so we know when books are completed.  Every month I will be choosing a Bookworm of the month for children who read regularly at home and show a love of reading.
When your child has read to an adult at home five times, they will receive a sticker in their diary.

Rapid Recall

Your child will be sent home with practice rapid recall sheets. These are not to be learned by rote, but rather explored and understood to a point of being able to apply their learning. Please feel free to use objects/ resources to support them with this.


Your child will be taking part in PE on a Monday and a Friday. If your child is unable to take part in PE due to injury please write a note explaining the extent of the injury and which activities your child is unable to participate in so that we can find a suitable way of involving them in the lesson. If your child has a verruca and therefore needs to wear their pumps when indoors, please send in a note marked for my attention. Also earrings should be covered with plasters or tape for PE if they cannot be removed. Please ensure your child is provided with something suitable on PE days, including some warm clothes so we may do PE outside weather permitting and please make sure their PE kits are named.

Many Thanks.
