Year 1 2019

Welcome to Year 1!
Mrs Hayes, Miss Ellis and Mrs Constantine teach in Year 1. 
   
We are really looking forward to starting some exciting new topics and helping the children to settle in to a new year group.
 
English

We will be reading traditional tales as part of our theme ‘Memories’. This term we will be focusing on the traditional tale of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and alternative versions of it.

This half term the children will continue to not have set reading days, so please ensure reading books are in book bags every day! When reading with your child at home, it is helpful if you make a note of this in their planners. If your child had finished their reading book at home, please make a note of this in their planners and we will do our best to change it the next day. It is clear to see how much the children are practising their reading at home, thank you for your support with this!

The children will also continue to take part in daily phonics sessions. To improve their reading and spelling.

 

Maths

We will continue to learn a range of skills in our Maths lessons. These include counting numbers up to 50 and finding one more and one less, and properties of 2D and 3D shapes.

The children will continue to learn Maths through lots of practical experiences. You could support with this at home by encouraging them to count, add, subtract, and find shapes in the house and when you are out and about!

             

Theme

Our school theme this term is ‘Memories’, in Year 1 we will be remembering traditional tales.
