R/1M - Miss Martin

Welcome to Class R/1M

We are the rabbits class.

Our Class page will give you lots of information about what is going on in school. This term our topic is Patterns!


Reception & Year 1: Welcome back parents and pupils and Happy New Year! This term we will be focusing on 'Patterns' and for all the first half term we will be focusing on the book 'Meerkat Mail'. This will then lead us to look at African; music, patterns and Art. We will also be doing writing about the story! Such as writing descriptions of meerkats, postcards, story maps, lists and lots more.


Year 1: This term we will be learning all about patterns as explained above. We will be exploring further into Africa and looking at its climate, seasons, population and some of its other features. We will also be looking at other countries and comparing them to see where the best place for the main character 'Sunny' is to go on holiday. We will continue to study the continents and oceans as well as the UK's capital cities. There will be lots of DT and Art this term so we ca explore all different patterns from the environment and from different animals. We will focus on African Tribal patterns and will make our own patterns which we will print onto fabric and then sew to make a bag!


There's lots to look forward to this term!
