Welcome to 1RW

1RW is taught by Ms Ranson and Mrs Waters. Miss Davis (our HLTA) teaches during our PPA time on a Wednesday morning.

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, 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.

In science we will be finding out all about our senses as well as how animals use their senses.

We have our own petting zoo in the corner of our classroom to explore with an information station to find out all about the animals.


What is your favourite animal?

 We will also be continuing to think about how the winter season affect the weather and the animals and plants around our school.



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.
