Class 1G 2017 - 2018

Miss Grossmith

Welcome to 1G

1G is taught by Miss Grossmith and Mrs Wilde (our HLTA) teaches during my PPA time every 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...Christmas Surprises!

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.


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 'Christmas Surprise!' theme.


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

  • Use of capital letters and full stops.

  • Remembering finger spaces.

  • Making our sentences better by using powerful verbs

  • Using story language sentence openers

  • Rereading and improving our sentences


We will also have a focus on spelling. We will revise and learn the spelling rules

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

- adding 'e' if a word ends in a /v/ sound
