Year 1 2018

Welcome to Year 1!

Miss Hughes, Miss Renshaw and Mrs Constantine teach in Year 1.

This term, our theme will be 'Let's Go Wild'. Year 1's learning will be inspired by the Wild West and the "The Wildest Cowboy" by Garth Jennings. Our challenge this term is to understand the Geographical and Historical context of the Wild West.


In our English learning our challenge is to use our class text to solve the robbery of our Year 1 books! We will use clues from the text and learning environment to describe crime scenes and suspects and later re-tell the story of "The Wildest Cowboy". 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, exclamation marks 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 numbers up to 50 and finding one more and one less, addition and subtraction to 20 and solving number problems.

Thank you for your continued support!
