Welcome to Year 1!
Miss Lowe and Mrs Woods welcome you to Year 1.
Remember 'You never know what you can do until you try!'
Instead of an author of the term, this year we are looking at exploring lots of different books with the children. We encourage the children to talk about books they like to read at home, sometimes they want to bring their books into school and its great to share different stories! Here are some authors that we recommend:
In reading and writing we will be focusing on using our phonics and becoming familiar with a variety of texts.
You could challenge yourself to write a shopping list, postcard or a story at home using these skills.
For free access to all Phonics Play games and resources apply the Username: march20
Also don't forget to keep on using your phonics packs that were given to you at parent's evening!
In our Mathematics lessons we use Power Maths which encourages discovery, sharing, thinking, practise and independent learning.
This week we will be exploring numbers up to 20, recapping 2D and 3D shapes. We will also remind you about how to measure length and height.
In history we are learning about Kings and Queens throughout history. We will explore their family tree, the job of a monarch and create some interesting pieces of artwork.
Our topic this term is healthy living and we will be exploring what it means to be healthy.
Over the next few weeks there are lots of things that you can do together to stay active whilst at home. We would encourage you to spend time outside as much as possible practising skills such as; jumping, running, throwing, catching, skipping and climbing.
In addition to this we have some great links below which will help to keep you moving.
