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.
Our whole school theme this term is ‘Memories’. We will be considering how we have changed from babies to Year 1 children. We will also be thinking about how our childhoods are different from those of our parents and grandparents. Our enquiry questions for this term is ‘When were the best toys invented?’ We will be studying the physics behind how different toys move and make noise in our Science lessons.
English work will be inspired by the book “Peepo” by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. We will be describing the illustrations in this text set in 1950’s Britain. We will spend lots of time this term focusing on letter formation and sentence structure.
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.
