General Class info/introduction:

We are Sunflower Class, a mix of 10 happy Year 1 and reception pupils.

Our topic this term is ‘Out and About”, and the planning is packed with lots of exciting and fun lessons. In Sunflower Class we love to learn through play, therefore we started our journey On the Farm alongside “The Little Red Hen” and other farm animals such as: cows, pigs, horses, donkeys, roosters, etc.

What we have been learning about this term: 

We enjoyed the story of the “Little Red Hen “and we learned how to help each other and to be friends. The children explored the story props, masks and made salt dough bread. Our class has turned into a farm and we are proud to have a “milking cow” –Corina the Cow.

Outdoor learning is one of our priority this term, therefore our adventure will be taking place on the playground and on the school field, looking for minibeasts, collecting sticks, ready for our Stick Man story, looking at the changes in our environment and feeding the birds.

We are looking forward to discovering and learning new things whilst having fun “Out and About”. The pupils are very excited to go to “The Jungle” as they are fascinated about the lions and the elephants.

Some of Sunflower Class planned activities for this term are:

  • Out and about on the Farm
  • The Jungle
  • Dear Zoo
  • The Very Hungry Caterpillar

We like to capture every moment of our learning experience by taking photographs of our masterpieces, whilst celebrating small steps progress.

In Sunflower Class we are each unique and beautiful, but tighter we are a masterpiece.
