Welcome to 1CI

1CI is taught by Mrs Capel, Mrs Ireland and Mrs Wilde (our HLTA) teaches 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...You and Me, By the Sea

This half term, we will be enjoying learning about life under the sea and at the seaside.

We have lots of fun things planned such as exploring objects that float and sink and making boats that float and carry objects across our very own sea. Also, we will be looking at maps of seaside towns and finding out what we can do there. We will visit the depths of the ocean as we create an underwater musical scene, using images to represent these sounds of the sealife.


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. 



We will doing lots of writing this half term based on our reading of books with a 'sea theme'.

Through the writing opportunities that we provide this half term the children will develop their sentence level skills, including-

  • Use of capital letters and full stops.

  • Remembering finger spaces.

  • Making our sentences better by using powerful verbs


We will also have a focus on spelling and learn some new spelling rules

- adding 'ing' and 'ed' to verbs (where the root word does not change)



Read and write numbers to 20 in numerals and words.

Add and subtract numbers using concrete objects, pictorial representations, and mentally within 20

Using the addition (+) subtraction (-) and equals (=) signs.

Place value of tens and ones in teen numbers.



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

Practise counting on and back and recording numbers up to 20, starting at any number. * Extension up to 50

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.

Homework will be sent home on a Friday and will be collected on Thursday the following week.
