Year 1

Welcome to Year 1. Our team consists of Ms. Cox, Miss Baird and Mr Deeley will be with us on a Friday afternoon. We also welcome back our Schools Direct Teacher training student for this Summer term, Mr Williams.

Our topics this term are Life in the city, learning and comparing human and geographical features.  We will also be exploring seaside holidays of the past with a focus on the rise in popularity during the Victorian era. This links to our art for this term where we will be creating seascapes.  In Science, we will be exploring the changing seasons in greater depth and looking at how this affects plant growth.  In DT we will be exploring fruit and vegetables and creating smoothies including designing packaging for our new recipe.

In Maths, we are embedding our understanding of place value, addition and subtraction skills and continuing our exploration of multiplication and division.  We will enjoy further learning about money, fractions and measure.

In our Writing, we are concentrating on perfecting our punctuation and improving the length of our writing, building our stamina. We will be looking at how to improve our sentences by adding adjectives and verbs that are interesting and using prefixes and suffixes to change the meaning of words. We will be exploring poems about the night sky and our text this term focuses on the story of toys lost in space.

For more information on this term's learning activities, please look at our planning section.

We will be focusing on the requirements for the Phonics Screening Assessment which wil take place in June.  I have attached some parent information with regard to this and our spelling homework will give plenty of opportunity to practise. If you have any questions regarding this assessment please do not hesitate to ask.
