Van Gogh Class

Welcome to Van Gogh class!

Vincent Van Gogh is one of the most famous artists of the last 200 years and we are very proud to be called Van Gogh class this year! Our main aim is to help the children reach their full potential and be the best that they can be!

Our first topic is ‘Marvellous Me’. We obviously already know that all of the children in our Year 1 class are marvellous but this half term we will be celebrating our differences and learning about other families and cultures. Year 1 will also become young scientists and learn to identify different parts of the body and investigate their 5 senses.

For homework, the children will be expected to complete the pages set in their Maths and English homework books, read a minimum of three times and learn their weekly spellings. As the homework is quite different to what was expected in reception, a letter will be sent out to parents giving further details.

P.E. will be on a Monday morning and Tuesday afternoon, so please ensure that you have a complete kit in school (including plain trainers and plimsoles). We will be doing Cricket and practising our ball skills.

If you do wish to chat to us about anything, then please remember that our door is always open.

We can’t wait to start this learning adventure and watch the children flourish!

Mrs Brender, Miss Norman and Mr Gorringe
