Welford-on-Avon Primary School

Year 1

Welcome to Year 1. Our team consists of Miss Richards, Mrs Guest and Mrs Mulliner. And we are lucky to have Mrs Verstraeten with us on a Tuesday!

We have P.E on Tuesday and Games on Friday so you need to wear your PE kits to school on these days.

Our topic this term is Fire! Fire! Fire! and we are going to learn about the details of the Great Fire of London and the Gun Powder plot. We will be looking at the differences between London in 1666 and 2020, such as how the buildings were different and how firefighting has developed since. We will be learning how to use timelines and how to write newspaper reports!

In Maths, we are working on adding and subtracting numbers, more than and less than, shapes and counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.

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 learning about “who we are” in science by looking at our bodies and how they work whilst drawing portraits of ourselves with charcoal in art.
