Welcome to Year 1!
An introduction to the Year 1 teaching team:
Mrs Clarke (Friday)
The days that Year 1 will need their PE Kits are Monday and Tuesday. Library books with be handed out on a Friday and will be changed the following Friday.
This half term our book is Claude in the City, by Alex T Smith. We will be discovering Claude's adventures in the city with his best friend Sir Bobblysock. We will be producing many different writing outcomes for example, character descriptions, city poems, postcards and newspaper reports.
Claude in the City has many cross curricular links. Our Geography will be focusing on the City of Portsmouth and we will be going on a School trip to explore Portsmouth further. In P.E we will be creating city shapes with our body and working with our partners to create sequences. We will be creating a range of Art projects based on Claude's trip to an Art gallary and studying artists, such as Picasso and Hepworth. In maths we will be continuing to develop our addition and subtraction fluency,using number bonds. We will be learning to tell the time (half past and o'clock), measuring in weight and learning about fractions (halves and quarters). During this half term, we will also begin our handwriting unit.
Information about our school trip to Portsmouth will soon follow in a letter.
We are really looking forward to an exciting half term!
Many thanks, Year 1 Team
