Year 1

Class Teacher:
Mrs Drysdale

Welcome to Year 1!

Hello and welcome to Year 1. On our page, you will find everything you need to know about what we’re learning, as well as links to home learning should your child be absent from school. Additionally, you can also access our termly curriculum and weekly spelling homework.

I hope that you have all had a restful half term break and are ready to hit the ground running again for our final term. I can’t quite believe that our children have only six weeks left in Year One, but we’ve got an exciting Summer 2 term planned for them. Let’s work hard, try our best and shine our LIGHT together!

As always, reading books are changed Monday and Thursday, so please send your child’s reading book and record in with them on those days and please sign the reading record if you have read with your child at home.

Also, Thursday is PE day, so your child should come to school in their school PE kit, suitable for outdoors.

Parents – If you need to contact me, please use the button on the right. Use the subject, ‘FAO: Mrs Drysdale’ so that I can receive your message easily; I will reply as soon as possible.

What are we learning?

In English…

This half term, we will be reading, ‘Beegu’ by Alexis Deacon. We will be using this exciting text to practise writing complete sentences using a capital letter, full stops and finger spaces. Also, we will be looking at using expanded noun phrases and conjunctions within our writing to describe the character and their feelings.

In Maths…

We will continue throughout this term in consolidating our prior knowledge. Additionally, this term is packed full of fun Maths and to begin with we will focus on numbers 0 – 100. We will then proceed to time, followed by money and to finish the year we will be learning about mass and space, (position and movement).

In Science…

Our unit to finish the school year and to consolidate our prior learning is ‘Seasonal Changes – Summer’. We will be identifying and describing how the weather changes across the seasons with a focus on summer. Additionally, we will be learning about the signs of summer and how the length of daylight changes and why. Finally, we will be learning about how to stay safe in the sun.

In RE…

This term we will be learning about the story of Joseph found in the Old Testament. We will be identifying and discussing why the story of Joseph is key in the history of the People of God and why forgiveness is a core Christian value. Additionally, we will be learning about the nature and characteristics of God and discussing the actions and feelings of the characters and relating them to our own.

In Topic…

This term we will be learning about ‘Who made it possible for us to travel? We will be looking back in history at the lives of significant individuals who have contributed to national and international achievements, ie; Christopher Columbus and the Wright Brothers. We will also be looking at transport from the past and how it has changed over the years to the present day.
