Welcome to our Year 1 page!
This term our topic is 'Twisted Tales' where we will be exploring different traditional Fairy Tales as well as ones with alternative endings. We will be focusing mainly on Jack and the Beanstalk in literacy where we will be twisting the story and creating riddles. We will also be using The Three Little Pigs and Three Billy Goats Gruff within our writing. Within maths we will be looking at addition and subtraction, place value and measurements.
Every Thursday we will be joining Year R and Year 2 to carry out different activities linked to our topic. This will include creating shields and swords, creating houses for the three little pigs and boats for the three billy goats gruff. Within topic we will also be looking into the royal family and which countries make up the UK.
In science we will be looking into materials, specifically which materials sink and float. We will also be looking into plants and planting our very own magic beans.
Our PE lessons are on Monday and Tuesday where we will be carrying out dance lessons and learning skills to play football. PE lessons do require all pupils to have their full PE kits with trainers and the option of trousers for outdoor PE. Earrings must be removed 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 also 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.
Miss Coward, Mrs Stapleton and Miss Poole.
