This term...

We shall begin the new school year by looking at the thought-provoking story The Colour Monster, where we will explore different emotions. In History we will be looking at the topic of families briefly before exploring the wonderful world of toys, old and new. Science will take us on a journey through the different seasons and we will be taking a close look at ourselves in Art as we learn about portraits. This will link nicely with our PSHE work, which will focus on the topic of 'Me and My Relationships.' We will be developing our understanding of place value in Maths, before adding and subtracting numbers using different strategies. RE work will focus on the Christian Creation story, where we will discuss how people should take care of our world. Our sentence-writing, phonics, spelling, handwriting and grammar work will be inspired by rich story texts and, as ever, we aim to promote a life-long passion for reading. Each day will feature a short, sharp burst of phonics as we add new sounds to our repertoire and learn to decode more words. Phew - what a lot to fit in! We look forward to a busy and fun term ahead! 

Busy Fingers!

As soon as we arrive in the mornings we like to get busy! Here are some of the activities we do when we get to school as we wait for all our friends to arrive before the register is taken. 

1, 2, 3, 4, 5...

We love numbers in Year 1 and we're learning to count on, count back, compare, order, recognise different number representations and so much more... often with the help of the Numberblocks!

Which is your favourite number?

Reminders:

  • Children should come to school in PE kit on Thursdays and Fridays.
