Year 1 - Dahl Class

Welcome to the Dahl Class Page.


Our Class Teacher is Mrs Maple.




Did you know we are called Dahl Class after the author Roald Dahl? We have really enjoyed reading some of his books in class including 'Fantastic Mr Fox', 'The Enormous Crocodile' and 'Esio Trot.'





In R.E. we have been learning about belonging. We have thought about the different groups we belong to and how this makes us feel. For example, we have thought about what it means to belong to Icknield School. We have identified how wearing our uniform and the Five Golden Rules are a sign that we belong to the school. We have also started to learn about what it means for someone to belong to Christianity and other religions. We are learning about the different signs and symbols of religions. 



This half term is Engineers! We have learnt about the job of Engineers and thought about what we would do if we were an Engineer. Through D&T we have learnt about the structure of bridges and looked at three different types. In Art we have explored manipulating paper to create different structures and have tried to recreate some of the most famous pieces of engineering. Our topic in Science is Materials, we have used our Science lessons to explore different materials and have thought about what would be the best material to make a boat or bridge out of based upon the properties of the materials. We have been able to apply all our learning through the story The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We have focused on the bridge and the different characters in the story. We are now experts on bridges!

Our 2017 Ofsted inspection commented - that we still provide good quality education & a stimulating & caring environment. Individual needs are well met & children quickly grow in confidence. There is a positive culture for safeguarding & pupils said that they feel happy & settled in school.

"I am amazing. Together we are magnificent!"
