In our class, we aim to be: 


We are always ready to learn.

We are patient and we pay attention so that we can be super learners!


We look after each other and the school property.

We take care in all that we do.


We listen carefully so that we are safe at all times.

We use our kind hands and we follow the instructions all of the time.


Get ready for an adventurous journey as Year One delve into the exciting world of Traction Man! The Dinosaurs class will be creating their own story map to help retell this story by Mini Grey, as well as using their fantastic writing skills to write and innovate it too! As well as using their 'Just Do It' rules (Capital letters, full stops and finger spaces), the children will be learning to include conjunctions and adjectives in their writing. We can't wait to see what the children achieve!

In topic, the children will link their learning to the Traction Man story by exploring different materials and their properties, as well as developing their scientific enquiry.  


Below, you will find the poem that we are learning this half term - 'If I was a Superhero' by Sally Gray. The children practise this poem to develop their communication skills. In class, the children are learning to read using expression and fluency.
