Class 1 - Mrs Hogan 

Welcome to Class 1 at Longtown Primary School

Class Topics

Autumn Term 2018

For the first two weeks of term our topic will be 'All about me'. We will then  begin our term topic - 'Toys'

Through a series of exciting and fascinating lessons the children will build their knowledge of the history of toys . We will be looking at modern-day toys and comparing these to toys played with in the past. We will be taking a tour around the world to see what types of toys children play with in a variety of  countries. We will be developing our D.T Skills within a mini project where we will be creating our own toys in small groups. The children will be planning, making and evaluating their toys throughout a series of lively lessons. .

Within computing we will be looking at e-safety and the importance of staying safe online.  We will be developing our throwing, catching and physical skills within our P.E lessons, as well as joining in with exciting new group games.

Our first topic in science is 'Forces', where we will be looking at how toys move and their forces. Through our science investigation we will be looking at the speed in which toys travel and will compare their distances.

As always in maths, the children will have the opportunity to work individually, in pairs or in small groups to investigate ideas, using models and images to support their learning. The emphasis is on learning through practical ‘hands on’ activities through a process of enquiry and experiment.
