Our class is a mixed Reception and Year 1 class. We are taught by Mrs Bowden and our teaching assistant is Mrs Cornish.

We love engaging in learning experiences that promote character and motivate us to be independent learners and thinkers, who are globally and culturally respectful with firm Christian values.

Learning Journey

This term our learning is mostly centered around the curriculum areas of English and Geography.  We will be answering the question “How can I create a map for Ronald the rhino to find me and write a manual for him explaining how to be a good friend?  We will be exploring ways to be a good friend and modelling this in our every day play.


This term in Maths we will be learning about Place Value, Calculation and Shape. We will be learning how to:

  • Sorting and counting objects
  • Counting forwards and backwards
  • Counting one more and one less
  • Comparing groups of objects using ‘less’, ‘more’, ‘greater’, ‘fewer’.
  • Ordering number and using a number- line
  • Addition and subtraction using number bonds to help
  • Recognise and name 2 and 3D shapes
  • Making patterns with 2 and 3D shapes


In Class One children will:

  • Encounter Christianity and other faiths as part of their growing sense of self, their community and their place within it.
  • Learn more about Christians, Jews and Muslims.
  • Learn about special places, special stories, special times and the special groups we might belong to.


PE lessons are on Wednesdays and Fridays.  We have a specialist P.E coach who will visit us on Fridays and on Wednesdays Mrs Bowden will be teaching us throwing and catching skills.  We will then incorporate these skills into invasion games.

Ways to help with learning in Class One:
