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 things planned this half term, including: designing and making our own printing blocks for a Christmas card and wrapping paper; finding out about how Christmas was celebrated in Victorian Britain and learning about which traditions we still celebrate today. 1CI want to find out if Father Christmas visited children in Victorian times. We think he did!

In Music, we will focus on developing our sense of rhythm using our voices and instruments to represent characters and moods. We will also be learning some traditional Christmas carols and singing our songs to perform at our KS1 Christmas nativity. We hope you can come to see us!

There will be lots of practical activities taking place in Science, learning through prediction and exploration. We will be finding out what materials everyday objects are made from and sorting them by their properties.


We will be continuing to develop our writing skills, writing stories, letters and instructions based on books we have read, beginning with The Jolly Postman...

Who will he meet on the way?

What surprises will there be on the way?


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 50 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.
