Year 1 2018
Welcome to Year 1!
Miss Hughes and Miss Renshaw teach in Year 1.
This term, our theme will continue to be be 'Let's Go Wild'. Year 1's learning will be inspired by the the royal family and the book "Katie in London" by James Mayhew. Our challenge this term is to learn about the British Monarchy and compare Queen Elizabeth I and Queen Elizabeth II. We will also be learning all about common plants and tree is the U.K. to design a palace garden.
In our English learning our challenge is to use our class text to imagine and write about our own magical journey around London. To do this we will be working hard on consistently using neat letter formation, capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. In addition we will begin to use suffixes, exclamation marks, question and learning about different sentence types.
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 (please put a note in the planner).
We will continue to learn a range of skills in our Maths lessons using concrete, pictorial and abstract resources to support our learning. We will be counting learning about position and direction, measuring height and length, measuring weight and measuring volume.
Thank you for your continued support!
