John Hellins Primary School

Being the best we can be


Class 1

In Class One, we are focused on ensuring there is a smooth transition between the EYFS curriculum and the National Curriculum. The classroom environment is organised to encourage focused, independent learning whilst also captivating the children’s imaginations.


This term we will be exploring magic.  Our first topic will look at castles, dragons, enchanted forests, fairies and magic tricks. There will be lots of opportunities to explore learning through play and open-ended tasks. Our writing will link with our topics, focusing on Traditional Tales, magical adventures by Enid Blyton and some incredible stories linked to dragons and royalty.


In Mathematics, the children will begin by focusing on number and place value. We will be learning to recognise and use numbers to 30, then 100 and beyond. We will be counting, adding and eventually subtracting numbers using objects and pictures this term.
