Year 1

Hope everyone had a good half term holiday!

Term 2

Our topic this half term is called Bright Lights Big City! We will be exploring the city of London in Geography and in History looking at The Great Fire of London.

Numeracy

As usual we are following the White Rose scheme of work which this half term begins with subtraction to 20 before moving on to recognising 2D and 3D shapes. We will also be counting on and finding one more and one less than a number to 20.

Literacy

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. This half term we will be looking at Information Texts and creating our own information books and writing labels , captions and lists.

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 working with you all this half term.

Welcome back to Year 1

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.
