Welcome back after the summer holiday and welcome to year 1!
This year we will have lots of fun building on what has been learnt in the early years. While in year 1 I will teach the children, however when I am not in class the children will be taught by Miss Lord or Mrs Atkinson.
PE days are Thursday and Friday. Please ensure that the children keep their kit in school and this will be sent home each half term. PE uniform should 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.
Reading is the key to your child’s learning. The children will keep the same book for 3 days. Please read this book each night with your child and discuss what has happened in the story. As the children are reading the same book at home and school they should increase pace and fluency. Please sign the reading record each time you have read the book.
The National Phonics Screening Test for all Year 1 children will take place in June. There will be information events on Tuesday 10th October and Friday 13th October to inform you of what this entails. After the meeting I will send home reading and spelling words each week.
In English this term we will begin with the book ‘Lost and Found.’ We will begin to write sentences to sequence the events thinking about capital letters, full stops and finger spaces.
This term in Maths we will be comparing numbers, recalling number bonds and starting to learn the skills of addition and subtraction. To support at home please practise number formation.
Our focus for the autumn term will be animals, including humans. We will look at how to classify animals such as mammals, birds, fish, amphibians and reptiles as well as learning about our senses.
In RE this term the children will explore one of the most epic stories of the Old Testament – Joseph. They will talk about the actions and feelings of the characters and relate them to their own experiences. This will lead to the children investigating what life was like when Jesus – God the Son was alive on earth. They will understand that Jesus lived over 2000 years ago and that our world today is very different.
The Geography theme this term is ‘What is outside out window?’ We will look at the school as well as the local area. We are going to look at simple map skills as well as creating our own map of the school. We will start to look at the weather in the local area and compare this to other countries.
