Welcome! We are Roe Class – Reception and Year 1

This term’s topic of I Spy… focuses on the local area. We will be making visits to St Mary’s church, Fairyland and the canal in Hungerford, as well as closely investigating our own school grounds.

There will be a strong emphasis on the scientific skill of observation, which will involve the children exploring how we use our senses to gain information and investigate change over time. This will be developed through planting seeds and beans and by observing the life cycle of minibeasts. Watch out for some tiny visitors to our classroom!

The children will also be engaged in a number of art techniques that use watercolours, clay and fabric. We will study the works of Monet, Van Gough, Goldsworthy and Matisse and use these as inspiration for our own work on local landscapes.
