Fleming Class Y1

Fleming Class is one of our two Year 1 classes.
We are part of the Discoverers Stage, working closely with the rest of Year 1 and Year 2 across Key Stage 1.
All of the Year 1 adults work closely together and know the children in both Newton and Fleming classes incredibly well. We also encourage the children to play, work and learn together across both classes (inside and out).
Our class is named after Sir Alexander Fleming, he was a Scottish physician and microbiologist.  He is best known for discovering the world's first broadly effective antibiotic substance, which he named penicillin.

This half term our learning theme is “Where I live - Newquay” and our enquiry  question is ‘How is my locality changing?’


The children will be immersed in the story ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’. We will learn, retell, innovate and invent our own stories based on the traditional tale. The children will be reading a range of different traditional tales in class to support their writing. We will paint and draw characters thinking about their features.


In design technology the children will design, make and evaluate bridges. They will reflect on their previous learning around materials and think about any adaptations that they could make to improve their bridges.


In Geography the children will explore our locality through local walks. We will learn all about our local area, draw maps and write descriptions of our locality using taught vocabulary. We will work together to answer our enquiry question; ‘How is my locality changing?’


In maths we will be looking at place value within 20, before moving on to addition and subtraction within 20 after a few weeks.  Once a week the children will have a maths lesson based upon measurent.  This half term they will be learning about length and height.


In P.E the children will focus on the units, gymnastics and team building. In gymnastics they will learn how to become a gymnastic ‘champion’ and in teambuilding, they will be encouraged to think about inclusion, cooperation, communication and simple team-building strategies.


In R.E we will continue to focus on Christianity as we explore the question: ‘Who do Christians say made the world?’ 


You can see a more in-depth plan of this half terms learning below.


Classroom Essentials 

 Our P.E day is Tuesday.


We would like PE kits to stay in school where possible and they will be sent home at the end of this half term.  Please make sure all items are named (including shoes).


Please continue to send your child in with a named coat each day and if waterproofs and wellies could stay in school that would be brilliant for our outdoor area.


We will continue to send weekly spellings and phonics videos home through tapestry from week two onwards.  Any messages for parents will now be sent out from the office through e-mail.  Please make sure you check your e-mail regularly.
