Mrs Ireland

Mrs Capel

Year 1 Teacher

Welcome to 1CI

1CI is taught by Mrs Capel and Mrs Ireland. 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...

We have lots of fun activities planned for this half term as we take a walk thought the jungle, including: developing our sculpting techniques in Art using card, foil and clay to create animal sculptures; composing our own musical pieces to represent different animals; and learning about animals and plants that can be found in different places on Earth, and exploring ways in which they are similar and different.


Our Geography unit will be based on ‘Weather’. We will learn about weather conditions we experience in the UK and find out about weather patterns across the year (the four seasons) and how the weather affects what we do.

We will be continuing to develop our writing skills; writing stories, poems and instructions based on books we have read, including: Dear Zoo, Little Jim Lost and Monkey Puzzle.


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 100 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.
