Welcome to Year 1!
Miss Hughes, Mrs Constantine and Miss Renshaw work in Year 1.
We have had an exciting time in Year 1 so far. We have been learning about: our local wildlife, the moon, our families, our local town and fairy tales.
This term's theme is 'Go With The Flow' in which Year 1 will be learning about the real life journey of a Giraffe from the savanna of Africa to the busy streets of Paris. This learning is inspired by our class book 'Zeraffa Giraffa' by Dianne Hofmeyr. We are really looking forward to finding out about the continents, oceans and different landscapes on our planet. We will also be learning about the history of transport and different kinds of animals.
We will continue to develop our reading through daily phonics sessions and a curriculum full of rich reading opportunities. To support this at home, please encourage your child to read regularly, we are happy to change reading books when required.
In our Maths this term, we are moving on to Multiplication and Division of the 2, 5, and 10 multiplication tables. We will use objects and number lines to support our learning.
We are becoming fantastic authors; remembering to use capital letters, full stops and finger in our story writing. This term we will be focusing on our spelling using different suffixes and prefixes.
