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 Spring term called Mrs Gregory.

Our topics this term are Around the World where we will be learning all about the seven continents of the world and the distinguishing features of countries within those continents.  We will also be exploring Toys over time and how they and children's play have changed.  In Science we will be learning to identify and classify animals learning about similarities and differences within animal families.

In Maths, we are extending our understanding of place value, addition and subtraction skills and beginning our exploration of multiplication and division.  We will be learning about money, fractions, mass and capacity.

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. We will be exploring animal poems and texts this term and developing our adjective vocabulary.
