Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

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

English

Our English learning this term will be inspired by “The Lorax” by Dr Seuss. We continue to develop our use of adjectives, conjunction and suffixes in creating different types of writing inspired by different parts of the story.

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 place value within 20, addition and subtraction up to 20, and begin to measure length weight and volume.

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 measure at home

Theme

This half term we have a geography focus. We will be exploring human and geographical features around the United Kingdom and deciding which location we would like to plant a truffula tree.

In our Science lessons, we will learning about flowering plants and trees in the U.K.
