Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

Mrs Hayes and Mrs Winterbottom are our Year 1 staff team. 

We will be reading traditional tales to inspire our learning this term. We are focusing on the traditional tale of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and alternative versions of it. We will continue to build on Reception learning and supporting children to write sentences independently. In Year 1, children are encouraged to use their phonic knowledge to spell (sound it out). We will be practising all these skills to describe different fairy tale characters and re-write the tale of ‘The Three Little Pigs’.

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


We will be learning a range of skills in our Maths lessons over the course of the year. This term we will be focusing on: counting forwards and backwards to 20, finding one more and one less, and addition and subtraction. We will be giving the children lots of practical experiences in their Maths lessons. 


In our theme this term, we will be answering the question "Where would the Three Little Pigs choose to live in Godley?" Throughout this term, we will learning to identify and describe different materials. We will use our scientific knowledge of materials to design and build a wolf-proof house for the Three Little Pigs. In Geography, we will be investigating where the Three Little Pigs would want to live in Godley. We will studying different types of dwellings, places in the town, reading maps and drawing our own maps of our local area.
