Welcome to our Year 1 page!
This term we will be looking at two different topics. Our first topic will be 'Under the Sea' where we will be looking at different adventures to support our writing. Our next topic will be 'On The Farm' and we will be learning about different animals and plants. In literacy we will be writing letters, diary entries, recounts and information texts. Our writing will be based closely around our topics. Within maths we will be looking at multiplication and division, fractions, position and directions, place value within 100, money and time.
In science we will be looking into the basic structure of plants and animals. We will be naming and sorting a range of animals in relation to their similarities and differences. We will also be looking at seasonal changes.
Within geography we will be tracking weather patterns. We will also look at where our food comes from and compare similarities and differences between our local area and another area within a different country.
Our PE lessons are on Monday and Tuesday where we will be carrying out games lessons and learning key skills such as catching, throwing and using a bat and ball. PE lessons do require all pupils to have their full PE kits with trainers. Earrings must be removed before they come into school on these days and hair will need to be tied back for safety.
It would be fantastic if parents and guardians could listen to their child read at home and sign this in their Reading Record books as often as possible. This will support with their learning and increase their confidence when reading. The children still have an exciting opportunity to collect certificates in our reading challenge which is carried out throughout the school.
Mrs Stapleton will be teaching Year 1 every Tuesday.
Phonics screening will be carried out from 11th - 15th June. If you have any questions or concerns relating to this, please let me know.
Miss Coward, Mrs Stapleton and Miss Poole.
