Eric Carle Class

Welcome to Eric Carle class. We are a Reception/Year 1 class and our teachers are Ms Johns and Mrs Askew. We also have Mrs Smith and Miss Broglino to help us with our learning. 

In Eric Carle Class we started the year by listening to one of Eric's most famous stories - 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' and have learnt the story really well. We tried all of the delicious fruits in the story. Working together, we produced some wonderful art work to go on display including fingerprint caterpillars and a collage butterfly.

We have an wonderful year ahead of us and have an exciting and engaging curriculum planned.

This term our topic is 'How Did the Fire Start?' We will be looking at how the Great Fire of London started and why it happened.

Here are some of the exciting things that we have planned for this term:

  • Make clay jewellery just like the crown jewels in the Tower of London       
  • Draw and label different types of materials    
  • Build our own houses to reenact and retell the story of the Great Fire of London 
  • Welcome members of the Tri-Services into our school for a special visit  

PE sessions

PE days this term are a Monday and Wednesday. Please make sure all items are named. PE kits will come home at the end of each half term for washing.


Our library day this term is a Tuesday. We really love reading and reading records are checked on a Tuesday and stickers and house points are given out to those who have shared a book at home. It could be a book from home! When we fill up our sticker card, we receive a prize and three cards means a tea keep sharing books.

Read, Write Inc

We have been enjoying our daily Read, Write Inc sessions and have been learning a sound each day. Please send in your child’s RWI pack each day as we will be sending home our daily sound to practice at home along with a RWI book.
