Welcome to Opal Class, Year One

About Opal Class

For the first half of the Spring term our topic is ‘Homes’ where we will learn about different types of homes. Homes of different animals, different people and the difference in homes in different countries around the world. We are going to investigate which materials are good for building different types of homes and why.  We are going to look at maps and find about the climates of different countries and how that affects the type of homes they live in.

After half-term our topic will change to ‘Stories’ where we will finding out about stories from other cultures and writing our own stories.  We are going to investigate the different settings of stories and the formats of traditional tales.
