Opal Class

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

Don’t forget the next parents meeting is Wednesday 31st January and Parents Evening are Monday 5th and Tuesday 6th February :) 

About Opal Class

The children will be learning all about Transport from around the world, completing a local traffic survey and having a go at some explanation writing for how we make a scooter move…

When the children move onto the topic of ‘Ancient Egypt’ they will be learning all about the ancient civilisation with a strong focus on Tutankhamen and his life as a Pharaoh. They will be producing art work inspired by the tombs of the dead and will have a go at the mummifying a teddy bear using the same gruesome processes from the past.

Don’t forget to follow our class Twitter Feed for up to date information on what the class have been getting up to day to day :)

The Twitter Handle is @WinchelseaYear1
