Welcome to Year 1!
Mrs Woods and Miss Follows welcome you to Year 1.

Remember 'You never know what you can do until you try!'
The children will be using Monster Phonics to develop their reading skills. We will practise recognising many diagraphs and trigraphs, and learn to segment and blend these sounds in our reading and spelling.
Please encourage your child when reading to use their phonic sounds to support with reading unfamiliar words.
During the academic year we will be looking at a variety of texts including fiction and non-fiction. The children will look at set texts for two weeks and at the end will create a piece of writing to reflect what they have learnt.
The children will focus on their sentence structure remembering to use capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.
In our Mathematics we use Power Maths to encourage a great depth of learning. The children will discover new ways of solving problems, share their ideas, think about alternative ways of finding an answer and practise their independent learning.
In science we are learn about making careful observations and carry out experiments. During the academic year the children will learn about, Animals including Humans, Seasonal Changes, Materials and Plants.
In geography we will be asking questions and exploring the idea,
'What is the geography of where I live'.
In history, we will be asking lots of questions about the past. The children will look at how homes have changed, meet some significant people in history and learn about Kings and Queens.
In computing we will be thinking about what technology is and how it can help us. The children will practise and develop their typing skills and understand how to use certain programmes on the computer. We will also be using BeeBots to learn how to programme and create algorithms.
This term our thinking about caring for others and the world.
Look forward to: opposites, singing, Google Earth and much more!
Our religious symbols game will continue!
