Ms Boardman and Mrs Schofield would like to welcome you to Squirrels' class page on our school website.
Our class page will be updated on a half termly basis so that we can share our learning journey with you as it unfolds over the academic year.
Our topic this half term is 'The Steel City'. Our philosophical question is ' Is Sheffield a good place to live?' This is our Geography focus. We will be looking closely at the world around us. The Year One children will be learning the seven continents of the World and locating where hot and cold places are in the World.
The FS2 will be talking about where they live and looking at the environment.
We shall be having lots of learning outside and recording what we see. we will go to two local parks, the local shopping centre and go to visit the farm to see the animals we have been learning about.
In science this term we are identify different animals and their group. We shall look closely at the characteristics of each animal group.
Our topic this first half term is 'Castles!' Through our learning we will be trying to answer the philosophical question, 'Is it easier to defend or attack?'
We can't wait to see the learning that takes place this half term! Watch this space for updates.
Each class at St. Patrick’s has a class saint that we learn about throughout the year. We talk about our Saint regularly and encourage the children to learn, talk and ask questions about their Saint. Each Saint has a Feast Day, where we celebrate their lives and what they did in order to become a Saint.
In Squirrels, our class saint is Saint Francis of Assisi. St. Francis of Assisi was a Italian friar deacon and preacher. He is most well known as the patron saint of animals. St. Francis of Assisi's feast day is the 4th of October.
