GARNET – Year 1

Welcome!

In Garnet we have Mr Nunnington who is the teacher of the class and Miss Rainbow who is the Teaching Assistant.

In Year 1, our topic this half term is “Dinosaurs”.  This is a history based topic covering a range of areas including fossils and the famous palaeontologist, Mary Anning.  The topic will start by introducing a range of different dinosaurs; teaching the children how to identify them and analyse and compare their features.

In Literacy the children will be learning the poem “The King of the Dinosaurs” by Paul Cookson.  They will spend time becoming familiar with the poem through drama and oral rehearsal before writing their own poetry.

Garnet class have PE every Tuesday and Wednesday and all children need to bring their own PE kits (black shorts/leggings and a white T-shirt).

Finally, if you have any problems or there is anything we can help you with please feel free to come in and see me.
