Welcome to Year 1!
Mrs Allcock, Mrs Masters, Miss Lowe, Miss Newson, Mrs Holley and Miss Mayers welcome you to Year 1. Remember 'You never know what you can do until you try!’
Our author of the term is David McKee
In reading and writing we will be focusing on different vocabulary used within sentences, punctuation and using our phonics.
Challenge yourself to write a shopping list, a letter, an advert or a story at home using these skills.
We begin each session with an interactive activity called ‘Magical Maths’ where all children have the time to practise previous taught methods and strategies. In future weeks we will be exploring the concepts of number. Practising skills such as adding, taking away and partitioning.
Spellings are given out each Friday to learn for a test the following week. Please remember to practise little and often and apply each in your independent writing.
Homework is handed out each Friday and to be completed by the following Wednesday.
Activities range from our current English, Mathematic and Topic work.
In history we are learning about famous people throughout history. These include David Attenborough, PT Barnum and Guy Fawkes.
Our unit this term is: The long and short of it
We will be finding out about duration. Music is made up of long and short sounds. Using firework sounds, we will be putting long and short sounds together in a sequence.
This term we are thinking about celebrations.
Look forward to: mind maps, art, a competition and much more!
Our religious symbols game will continue!
At school we have been using the ipads to take photographs of our environment and have used google maps/ earth to explore features we see. In the computer suite we have used a variety of programs for investigation and research. We also use the programmable toys e.g. bee bots.
