Mrs Drysdale

Welcome to Year 1!

Welcome back after the Autumn break and as ever, I am excited and looking forward to the term ahead which will be full of lots of interesting and exciting things to learn.

I will update this page often with important information, so please come back to our class page regularly for updates about your child’s learning.

If you need to contact me, please press the button on the right and start your message FAO Mrs Drysdale. Alternatively, contact the office and leave a message and I will get back to you ASAP.

Important information

Reading is key to your child’s learning and it would be greatly beneficial to your child if you read at home daily for ten minutes throughout the year. I would like to see your child’s reading book and record in school once a week please and every time you read with your child, please sign the record to inform us. Reading books will be changed as needed.

PE days will take place on a Tuesday and Wednesday, so please ensure your child’s PE kit is in school at the start of each half term.

PE uniform should be brought into school and left on your child’s peg for the half term and consists of a plain white polo shirt/t-shirt, black shorts, black leggings or plain black tracksuit bottoms. trainers/pumps and a red fleece/jumper/cardigan for outdoor PE.

What are we learning?

In English…

In English this half term, we will continue to focus on our sentence structure using the book The Great Explorer by Chris Judge. Together we will be working on our handwriting stamina, building on this to begin to write a short narrative.

In Maths…

This term in Maths we will be focusing on place value, number bonds, addition and subtraction. The first part of the term will be applying these skills using numbers to 10 and the second part using numbers to 20.

In Science…

Our focus for Autumn 2 will be seasonal changes and specifically, the season of Autumn. We will be observing the changes happening and investigate why we have less daylight in Autumn. Finally, we will observe and describe the weather and its changes in Autumn compared to other seasons.

In RE…

In RE this term we will build upon our prior learning about Harvest, God and Creation and Christmas. We will learn that Harvest food comes from all around the world and that some people may have more than others and how we can share. This will lead on to developing their perceptions and understanding of God and finally, deepening their understanding of the true meaning of Christmas through emphasising that Jesus was a gift from God.

In Topic…

The Geography theme this term is ‘What is outside our window?’ We will be learning about the countries that make up the United Kingdom and identifying seasonal and daily weather patterns in the United Kingdom and the location of hot and cold areas of the world in relation to the Equator and the North and South Poles.
