Hello and welcome to Year 1. The children have been having lots of fun in their new class and have settled in very well. We have a fantastic Autumn Term coming up ahead of us with lots of interesting activities. Let’s see what we will be learning about…
In Religion – we are learning about families; our own, our school and our Church families.
In English – we are reading a variety of fiction books, such as The Gruffalo and other Julia Donaldson books. We will be predict what will happen in the stories, discuss the characters, plot of the stories and what the characters are thinking and feeling This will help your child understand the story better. We will be writing labels and lists as well as character descriptions.
In Maths – We will be looking at ordering the numbers to 100 and different ways to show these numbers. We will also be looking at different ways to make 10 and 20 by adding 2 numbers together.
In topic – we are looking at the topic “You are what you eat.” We are going discuss healthy foods, discuss a balanced diet a, look at where different foods come from and write instructions on how to plant seeds. We will also be discussing how to stay healthy with keeping fit and how being hygienic is important. Continuing on from this, we will be completing still life drawings of different fruits, designing a healthy meal and looking at where different foods come from.
Please don’t hesitate to talk to myself or Mrs Casey if you have any questions. We look forward to working with you and your children. Thank you for your support, Mrs Green.
A quick reminder that P.E is on a Tuesday and Wednesday and every child MUST have a P.E kit in school with them. Spellings will go home on Monday ready for our spelling test on Friday. Please also read with your child every night. This is very important as really impacts on your child.
Thank you, Mrs Green
