Orange Class

Welcome to Orange Class.

The teachers in Orange Class are Mrs Chick and Mrs Hibbert. Mrs Chick works on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Hibbert works on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Howell and Miss Harper.

In Year One we plan our learning based on the National Curriculum and the children’s interest. This gives us the freedom to take in to account each year groups interest and plan individualised learning opportunities. We cover a variety of topics throughout the year guided by the children which makes it engaging and enjoyable for all of us.

Each term we prepare a homework grid linked to the topic covering a range of curriculum areas. We encourage children to complete as many homework activities as they like and bring them in throughout the term to be celebrated and displayed.

Children are expected to read at home every day and parents need to make a brief comment in the reading diary each time. If your child has read at least five out of seven nights a week then they become a champion reader. This is a weekly challenge to keep the children engaged and an opportunity for them to practise the skills they’ve been taught in school. You can see the children that are champion readers on myvle every Friday.

Reading books will be changed twice a week with the teacher but your child can change their book as often as they need to. We recommend first thing in the morning.

We look forward to getting to know both you and your children throughout the year and having lots of fun.

Safer Internet Day

We looked at photos together, and decided if it would be safe to share them on the internet. We had an interesting discussion about it. Have a look at some of the photos on your phone with your child, and decide if you would share them online or not.

In our Big Write next Thursday, children in Year 1 will be retelling a Viking Adventure story. For those of you who are not sure how to access MyVLE,  here is the link to listen to the story.

Please listen to the story and talk about it together. Can your child remember the events in the right order?

A Step Back in Time

Year 1 started their journey through time by discovering how people used to wash their clothes. Miss Cherry from Yate Heritage Centre came to visit us and got everyone scrubbing! Have a look at the photos on MyVLE .

Washing clothes the hard way!

Geography in Year 1

As part of our theme ‘A Walk in the Woods’, we have been thinking about man-made and natural structures in our environment, and we sorted them into two groups. Can your child sort structures in your garden or street and explain their decisions?
