Class 1G 2016 - 2017

Miss Grossmith

Welcome to Class 1G

1G is taught by Miss Grossmith and Mrs McDowell (our HLTA) teaches during my PPA time every week.


Our theme for this term is:

In Geography, we will be exploring our school and local area. We will use and create our own maps, design symbols for keys and find out what Tytherington has to offer to the people who live there.

In our Art lessons this half term, we will be looking at flowers and plants and will be making a collage using different materials. We will look at the work of Kandinsky and use some of his ideas in our own pictures.

In science, we will be looking at plants. We will be finding out about what helps plants to grow well and conducting fun investiagtions to find out more.

Many of our subjects will link to this theme to make the learning more meaningful for the children. You can find an overview of our theme planning in the ‘downloads’ at the bottom of the page.




In English, we will be reading the 'Bog Baby'. We will go on our own Bog Baby hunt, make a home for a Bog Baby and write about how to care for this very special creature..

Following this, we will read 'The King of Tiny Things'. We will write our own stories using ideas from the book to describe what happens in the magical world of insects. By the end of the story, how could you not love these tiny creatures?


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

  • Writing a story with a beginning, middle and ending
  • Writing a sequence of sentences.
  • Using capital letters and full stops through our writing
  • Beginning to use question and exclamation marks
  • Checking sentences make sense by rereading.
  • Making our sentences better by using powerful verbs and adjectives
  • Adding in some detail to interest the reader
  • Using the connective ‘and’ to join some ideas and sentence


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

- spelling the common exception words

- breaking longer words into syllables to spell



Where possible we will link our theme of ‘Castles Dragons’ within our math’s lessons.

Use place value of numbers to 100 and beyond

Add and subtract 10 and 1

Add and subtract two-digit numbers

Develop knowledge and ability in multiplication and division (2s, 5s, 10s)

Represent and use number bonds and related subtraction facts within 20

Compare, describe and solve practical problems


Homework and how you can help at home

Please ensure that you read regularly with your child at home (5 times a week is ideal), asking questions during or after reading, to help develop your child’s understanding of the text.

Practise number bonds for each number to 10 (and then 20) to develop rapid recall.

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

Homework will be sent home on a Friday and will be collected on Tuesday the following week. A maths task will be set on a Wednesday but does not need to be returned to school.

Homework will consist of spelling patterns, handwriting and phonic practice. Occasionally, other homework will be assigned, such as History or Science projects.
