Year 1 - Trinity
Support Staff: Miss Jahangir and Ms Salim
Hello everyone and welcome to our class page! :)
Trinity Class is an exciting place to learn!
In our class, we have thirty brilliant, enthusiastic, talented and hardworking children, who are supported in their learning by an outstanding Year 1 team and very supportive parents.
Our class values of willingness, ambition, resilience, respect, enthusiasm and never giving up, permeate the life of our school, with staff, pupils and parents working and learning together, sharing a common aim for all our children to be the best that they can be in our journey of building tomorrow, today.
I hope our class page gives you a flavour of life in Trinity Class!
With best wishes,
Ms Rehman, Miss Jahangir and Ms Salim

Autumn 2: Knowledge organisers
Week 1: Transition Week
This week has been such an exciting week! Myself, Miss Jahangir and Ms Salim have absolutely loved getting to know each and every child. We are ever so excited to work with our class over the year. Every child has settled in so well and I'm so proud of so many brave children who entered my door on the first day and continue to do so!
This week we have had many workstations for the children to try out different activities. The children used collage techniques to decorate fishes on our craft table. These will fill up our beautiful classroom and bring it more to life. The children also have used dot techniques to create self-portraits. Many children explored maths through numicon and practised representing numbers in different ways. The children have also loved playing with our train tracks and construction toys.
Week 2: Wonderful Rainbows
This week in English we have been learning all about poetry. We will be writing a poem about the rainbow colours. We dived into our creative sides by taking part in an Art lesson. We used our finger prints to create a rainbow! We loved the texture of the paint and the bright colours. They all came out so beautiful.
Week 3: Peculiar Poetry
Today we practised our poems about rainbows. We used adjectives and actions to make our poetry exciting! We used voices like deep bears and we whispered our poem too! Everyone was so confident and had so much fun. Well done Trinity!
Week 4: Fun on the Run
This week we have been enjoying PE. The focus of learning was to apply pupils knowledge of how to run and where to run, while exploring running at different speeds.
We had a relay race to practise running at different speeds. We supported each other by cheering and clapping.
Week 5: Rain Rain Come Today
Bottles Bottles, we needed bottles! You may be wondering why Trinity class were on the hunt for many bottles? This week, we focussed on how rain is measured. We explored the use of rain gauges and created some of our own. Did you see some of them outside our class?
We created a scale by aligning our ruler.
We were so focussed!
We put stones in our rain gauge to ensure it stays upright. We then placed it outside.
Week 6: RE
This week in RE, we continued our learning about Christianity. We recapped symbols that are important to a person belonging to Christianity. We sorted the symbols.
We then created cards using these symbols. Lots of children drew a church with a cross. They also drew a candle to symbolise the last step in Baptism.
Week 1: Local Church Visit
This week, Trinity class went on a visit to our local church, St Margaret's. Once there, they were told about the history of the church and how important it is to Barking's history. We even found out that Captain Cook (the explorer who founded Australia and New Zealand) was married here back in 1762.
We had the opportunity to explore the church looking for stained glass windows, figurines and even a dragon!
Week 2: UK Parliament Week
This week it is UK Parliament Week so we have been learning what it means to vote. We discussed two issues that affect our local area - litter and road safety - and then cast our own vote, just like our parents do.
Votes will be counted on Monday and then we will decide how we can campaign to improve things for all our families.
