Welcome to Year 1!
An introduction to the Year 1 teaching team:
Mrs Clarke (Monday andFriday)
The days that Year 1 will need their PE Kits are Tuesday and Thursday. Library books with be handed out on a Friday and will be changed the following Friday. Spot books will be changed daily or when necessary. We will have a class reward system to encourage reading regularly at home. We encourage you to read regularly to practise phonics and tricky words. We are awaiting lids for the children's water bottles so if you would like to provide your child with a water bottle from home in the mean time you are welcome to do so. Home learning will be given out half termly and a page with explanation will be stuck in the children's communication books within the first few weeks of every half term.
Our topic this half term is 'The Lonely Beast' by Chris Judge
We will be finding out about the The Lonely Beast exploring themes of ourselves, friendship and feelings. This will link with our PSHE learning this half term which is 'All about me.'In Science we are learning about materials and their properties as well as seasonal changes. In Maths we will be focusing on securing place value and continuing from Year R learning in addition and subtraction. Our roleplay area will help the children to embed their learning in money (recognising coins).
We are really looking to a great year in Year 1!
Year 1 Team.
We are really looking forward to an exciting half term!
Many thanks, Year 1 Team
