1CW - Mrs Wainwright/ Mrs Clarke

smileyWelcome to 1CW!smiley


Welcome to our class page, this is where you will find information about all the fantastic learning that is taking place in 1CW.



Wow, this year is going so fast!!

Our current topic is based around the book 'Supertato' this hilarious book is based in a supermarket and features our Superhero, who is a potato and our Supervillain, who is an Evil Pea.


When the children came into school on the first back back, someone had been very cruel to lots of the fruits and vegetables. The children had to be detectives to work out who had been up to mischief and solve the crimes. We eventually found out the Evil Pea was to blame and we quickly made some wanted posters before he could cause any more mayhem. (If you spot him, be sure to let us know!)

During this topic the children will be writing character descriptions, inventing their own super hero and villain veggies as well as creating their own Super veggie story.

We will focus on sentence structure, using adjectives and ensuring their stories have a clear beginning, middle and end. 

We will also look at where food comes from, plant our own potatoes and make some potato based foods.

 In PSHE we looked at the story, 'Kindness is cooler, Mrs Ruler' and have created a kindness wall in the classroom.

The children have been asked to think of ways that they are kind and share it with the class. Their kind deed is then added to the wall. If you notice any kindness at home you think is worthy of our wall please write it in the homework diary so we can add it.


Update: We managed to get to 30 kindness acts on our wall and the children have set themselves a new target of getting to 50!

Some of the kindness acts we recorded were; telling someone they had nice hair, sharing pencils with someone, helping somebody to do up their coat, holding the door open for a teacher and much, much more. We are very proud of the children. Well done!

The children had lots of fun doing different experiments learning about airborne germs. You can see them learning about the distance germs travel when we sneeze and also why we need to use warm soapy water when we wash our hands.
