Year 1

Welcome back to Year 1

Term 1

Our topic this half term is called Street Detectives and it’s all about finding out about our local area. It is a history based topic so we will be finding clues to unlock the secrets of how our local area has developed over time.


As usual we are following the White Rose scheme of work which this half term begins with place value within 10 . We will be doing lots of counting and matching amounts to numbers. We will then later move on towards addition and subtraction later this term. So don’t forget to practice counting and addition with everything you can find at home.


In Literacy we will be following the Talk for Writing approach. This means that we will practice speaking what we want to say before we begin to write. We will also be using actions to help us remember what we want to write about. In the first part of the term we will be writing simple recounts before moving on to looking at traditional tales.

We will also be continuing with our Read Write Inc programme each day to practice our letter sounds.

PE day is Tuesday – Please come in your PE kit for the whole day.

We are really lucky to have lots of adults working in class one this year.

We have myself Miss Haresign , Mrs Dean , Mrs Stoffel and Mrs Jackson . We also have Mrs Potter working with us on a Monday.

We look forward to seeing you and working with you this year.
