Welcome to Base 1

Children's Learning     


What we are learning this term

This term in maths we will be covering a range of areas including number, addition, subtraction, shape and time.

In English we will be preparing for the phonics screening check. Our topic for the term is ‘my world’ and within this we will look at the UK, maps and weather. Our main texts that we will focus on in English will be the Town Mouse and the Country Mouse and Jack and the beanstalk. Our science topic for the term is plants; we will be looking at the different parts of plants and doing lots of investigations thinking about what plans need to grow.


Visits and visitors

Base One will be visiting Attingham Park. Whilst we are here we will go for a walk and also look at the trees, flowers and plants in the grounds. We will also study the play area as our DT topic is ‘playgrounds’.

After this trip we will visit the Shrewsbury Quarry. Here we will also be able to study the play area and compare it to that of Attingham. We will also visit the Dingle to study the plants and flowers. We will use our map skills to navigate round the Quarry!


Important days


Tuesday and Wednesday are our PE days this term but we ask that children leave their PE kit in school all week if possible. As the weather improves we will try to do PE outside, please provide your child with an out-door PE kit including pumps or trainers.

 Spellings are sent home on a Monday and tested on a Friday .

 Children can change their book when needed, they are asked to place their book in the green basket by the curtain and it will be changed as soon as possible. We encourage children to change their book once or twice a week.
