Year 1: Tiger Moths

Welcomtthe Tiger Moths!

Hello and welcome!

*Meet the Tiger Moths grown-ups*

The grown-ups in the Tiger Moths class are Mr Kenny, Mrs Jones and Miss Parkhouse. We love teaching the Tiger Moths and we are so proud of their achievements!

If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you! 

*Our Christian Value for the term*

Our value for this term is Respect. Being respectful is one of the key ingredients to being the best person you can be.

“Every human being, of whatever origin, of whatever station, deserves respect. We must each respect others even as we respect ourselves.”

 

Respect is also one of our school rules (Ready, Respectful and Safe) and is a value we hold dear in school. The children learn to recognise respect in others, while also showing respect themselves.

“Respect other people's feelings. It might mean nothing to you, but it could mean everything to them.”  Roy T. Bennett.

 

The children also learn the importance of showing respect to our belongings and to our environment. They are developing their understanding of how we can respect our beautiful world and what we can further do as a school, as a Plastic Free School.

When it comes to climate change, “be the change you wish to be in the world.”

Mahatma Gandhi.

*Our Learning for this term*

Our topic this term is called Squeak, Miaow, Roar! Can you guess what we might be learning about? We are learning about all sorts of animals, from pets to farm animals to jungle animals. We will find out about similarities and differences between animals, looking at their skin and coats, what they eat and whether they are herbivores, carnivores or omnivores, naming their body parts, looking at where they live, drawing animals and so much more. Do you have pets at home? Perhaps you might like to bring in a photograph of your pet and bring it in to show us.

In English, we will be continuing to learn using Talk for Writing where most of our learning is based around a key book. Our book for this term is called The Enormous Turnip. There are some animals in that story too! We will be reading the story until we have learnt it by heart and can use some of the features of the story to help us in other writing too.

In maths, we are using a new scheme called White Rose Maths. To begin with, we will be learning about place value and doing lots of counting too. Can you practise counting objects at home?

In RE out topic is all about God. We will be learning what Christians believe about God by looking at the story of The Lost Son from the Bible.  I wonder who God might be in that particular story?

As well as all of this, we will be doing PE, PSHE and Forest School too. Of course there will be lots of time to get to know each other and to have some fun too. We can't wait to see you all - it's going to be a busy fun-packed term.
