Opal Class

Welcome to Opal Class, where our sparkly diamonds take their next steps into the main school building and become shining little gems!

About Opal Class

This term our topics are ‘Houses and Homes from long ago’ and ‘Traditional Tales’ The children will be learning all about castles, caves and any other types of home they show a particular interest in – at the moment we are all very keen to build our own igloos (we are just missing one vital thing for this!) When we move onto Traditonal Tales we will be looking at stories like Rapunzel and Rumpelstiltskin. The children will be asked to share their favourite stories from home in school, so look out for the note requesting these come in.

Opal Class will be holding a Numeracy workshop this term where the parents and children can work together to look at how resources are used within school to support progress in this subject.


Useful Websites

At the end of Year 1 the children will complete the phonics screening check.


The link will take you to a game that we use a lot in class to support our reading of silly alien words.

You will also find lots of other free resources on this website so do take a look :)

Don’t forget about Mathletics, we access the website regularly in school to work on all of our maths skills:
