Welcome! We are Roe Class – Reception and Year 1

This term’s topic of ‘Dear Greenpeace’ focusses on caring for our world. We will be thinking about our local environment and comparing this with rainforest habitats.

There will be a strong emphasis on growing and caring for plants and on classifying animals. We will also investigate endangered animals and be helping out by adopting one through WWF. Look out for news of this long armed animal after half term.

The children will be engaged in a number of art techniques; using collage to create 3D representations of a rainforest and observational drawing and painting of plants and animals.

Once again we will be keeping Internet safe with Smartie the penguin.

Our Christian values this term are compassion and generosity and this will be closely linked to our theme of looking after our world. In RE, Mrs Chambers has some exciting activities planned for learning on Shabbat, including tidying and cleaning the classroom! Ask your children for more information.

As we approach the end of the academic year, we will think about next year, growing up and moving on and our term will finish with a leavers service in church.
