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 have a Schools Direct Teacher training student with us this Autumn term called Mr Williams.

Our topics this term are We are Britain where we will be learning all about the four nations that make up the United Kingdom and their distinguishing features.  We will also be exploring monarchs and castles and hope to visit Kenilworth Castle for some hands on exploration.  In Science we will be learning about our senses and human body parts as well as identifying and comparing a variety of common animals and invertebrates.

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.
