Welcome to our Year 1 page!
Welcome to Year 1. We hope you have all enjoyed a lovely Easter break!
This half term our topic is 'Plants' where we will be learning all about a range of wild plants and different types of trees. After half term our topic will be 'Animals'. Literacy lessons will include the children writing their own traditional tale and letter. They will also write diary entries and a non-chronological report. Within maths, we will be covering multiplication and division, fractions, positional language, place value to 100, time and money. In science we will be learning about plants and growing out own plant. We will also be creating our own weather diaries to spot weather patterns.
Our PE lessons are on Monday and Thursdays where we will be carrying out dance and games lessons. PE lessons do require all pupils to have their full PE kits with trainers or plimsolls. 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.
After half term, Year 1 will also be taking part in the Phonics Screening test. If you have any questions regarding this test please feel free to come and speak to us.
