Year 1

Welcome to Year 1. Our team consists of Miss Richards, Mrs Bonham, Mr Jones and Mrs Danner. And Mrs Houghton will be with us on a Friday morning!

Our topic this term is Islands! We will be learning all about the Galapagos Islands and everything there is to do and see there. We will be exploring books such as Dougal's Deep Sea Diary, What Mr Darwin Saw and If All The World Were. We will be growing plants in Science whilst exploring fruit and vegetables in Desgin & Technology. 

In Maths, we are working on adding and subtracting numbers, more than and less than, shapes and counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. We will also be looking at capacity, lengths and heights. 

In our writing, we are concentrating on remembering capital letters at the start of our sentence and full stops at the end. We will be looking at how to improve our sentences and make them longer whilst working on our handwriting and making sure we are writing on the line and forming our letters correctly.
