Welcome to Year 1!

We have had an exciting start in Year 1 so far. We have been thinking about our aspirations for the future and settling in to our new routines.

This term, our theme will be 'Buried Treasure'. Year 1's learning will be inspired by the book "The Robot and The Bluebird" by David Lucas. Our challenge this term is to consider what we consider our own treasure. Within this we will think about changes in our own lifetime and comparing our childhood toys to those of children 20 and 50 years ago.


In our English learning we will be writing our own Robot adventure. To do this we will be working hard on consistently using neat letter formation, capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

In our Science learning we will be designing our own robot. To complete this challenge we will be learning to name, identify and describe the properties of everyday materials. 

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). 

In our Maths this term, we are developing are reasoning around numbers 0-10. We will be using concrete objects and pictures to represent numbers, find missing numbers, and compare numbers. Later we will develop our mathematical understanding in addition and subtraction. 

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Hughes, Miss Renshaw and Mrs Constantine
