Year 1  - Grasshoppers


Miss Tabani

Welcome to the Grasshopper class page!


This term our learning journey is Is Africa a country?


So far this term, the children have been learning all about the Africa. We have been busy improving our geographical knowledge and can name all seven continents and find them on a map! Ask us to sing you our wonderful continents song! 

 We have been working hard to develop our phonics knowledge and we are getting better at decoding words every single day! 

We have been writing about Handa's hen, Tinga tinga tales and our favourite - The tiger who came to tea! 

In maths we have been learning about place value to 50 and have enjoyed measuring mass and length.


PE days are usually on a Monday and Friday. It would be helpful if you can bring PE kits at the beginning of the week to leave in school until the end of the week. 


Reading books are changed weekly. We will be reading with the children in school, they will work on comprehension, expression and word reading whilst reading with an adult. They will then bring this book home to continue to practise reading fluently. Please send books to school each day. 


We will keep you updated with all of the children's wonderful progress and learning!
