Welcome to 1CI

1CI is taught by Mrs Capel and Mrs Ireland. Mrs Wilde and Mr Dodd (our HLTAs) teach during our PPA time every other week.

Please use our class page to find out what we are learning about and doing during the year. Take a look at what we have been up to in the Gallery section.


Our theme for this term is...

We have lots of fun activities packed into this half term as we dive deep down into the sea. We will be designing and making paper fish; and getting a little wet as we investigate which objects and materials float and sink, having fun trying to make our own floating boats! We will be exploring and combining sound as we create our own ocean scene, using instruments to represent the different creatures that can be found there.

We will be developing our writing skills, learning to write stories based on books we have read, beginning with Billy's Bucket...

Billy wants only one thing for his birthday - a bucket. Inside it, he can see all kinds of magnificent sea creatures. But Mum and Dad are sceptical and, when Dad unwittingly uses the bucket to clean his car, he's in for a big surprise!

More detailed information about the class theme can be found by opening the “Curriculum Plan” which can be found in “Files to download” lower down the class homepage. 




Please ensure that you read regularly with your child at home as well as practising the common exception words.

Practise counting on and back in 1s from any number to 20 and finding one more and one less than a number.

Please practise recall of pairs of numbers that total 10; e.g. 7 + 3    8 + 2     9 + 1

Please practise the spellings that we send home to learn each week. It is very important that your child begins to spell more accurately as well as phonetically.

Please don't just do the homework, keep practising by looking at the information shared on the parents board.
