Year 1 2018
Welcome to Year 1!
Miss Hughes, Miss Renshaw and Mrs Constantine teach in Year 1.
This term, our theme will be 'Buried Treasure'. Year 1's learning will be inspired by a variety of Fairy Tales and we will focus on the tale of "The Three Little Pigs". Our challenge this term is to consider why Fairy Tales are a treasured part of many cultures. Within this we will learn about how dwellings and towns have changed over time and what materials would make a safer house for the three little pigs.
In our English learning we will be re-telling the tale of "The Three Little Pigs" and later writing a newspaper article inspired by these events. 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 prefixes (unhappy, unfair) and suffixes (stronger, strongest).
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 our reasoning around numbers 0-20. 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 with numbers bridging 10.
Thank you for your continued support!
