Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

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


Summer Term 1

English

Our English learning this term will be inspired by “One Day On Our Blue Planet" by Ella Bailey and "Lost and Found" by Oliver Jeffers. We continue to develop our use of adjectives, conjunctions and suffixes in creating descriptive and narrative writing inspired by these texts. We will also be learning and performing poetry in our Reading sessions.

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

Maths

We will continue to learn a range of skills in our Maths lessons. This term we will focus on telling the time and multiplication and division while continuing to practise previously taught skills.

The children will continue to learn Maths through lots of practical experiences. You could support with this at home by encouraging them to count in 2s 5s and 10s, tell the time to the nearest half hour and share objects equally.

Theme

This half term we have a geography focus. We will be exploring the world focusing on Antarctica and our local area. 

In our Science lessons, we will learning about animals. Including; animal groups, animal diets and animal characteristics. We will use our learning from Science and Geography to answer our enquiry question "Why do penguins live in Antarctica?"
