Class 1

Welcome to Class 1!



 Our topic for this term is ‘Seaside'.  In English we will enjoy a range of seaside themed books as well as writing reports and a recount of our trip to Lower Moor Farm. We will also be learning some poems and also writing our own too.  In Maths we will be going deeper into understanding numbers and the number system, as well as addition and subtraction.  In Art we will be painting under the sea pictures and in Design and Technology we will make our own beach huts.  In Science we will be investigating how plants grow.  In History we will be finding out about Christopher Columbus and in Geography we will be exploring human and physical features of the seaside and inland too.

Our Stratton key values are: Friendship, Respect, Responsibility, Peace and Truthfulness.  Out of the many Christian values these were selected by the children, staff, parents and governors as our key values for school life.


Our home school value this term is WISDOM.  Click on the link below to find out more.  


 It is important that our Christian Values are evident and encouraged in our daily lives within our school community. In recognition of children who show responsibility, respect, friendship, who are at peace or truthful, we now have a "values tree" where their photo will be placed. The tree, in the school hall, has colour coded leaves representing our chosen key Christian Values. When a child is spotted by a member of our school community to be demonstrating one of the Values, their photo will go on the appropriate colour leaf in celebration.
