YEAR 1

A warm welcome to our Year 1 page!

 

Literacy

Our current topic in Literacy is the 'Once Upon a Time'.  We will be reading and writing about different traditional tales, including the Elves and the Shoemaker, Goldilocks and The Three Bears, The Three Little Pigs and Cinderella. We will also be thinking about the castles which feature in Fairytales, the sorts of people who might live in them and the values they would have lived by.

Mathematics

This term we are consolidating our knowledge of number. We are using lots of practical resources to explore the size of numbers as well as reinforcing our understanding of this when we add and subtract.

Science

Our topic this term is 'Animals, Including Humans'. We are learning to correctly identify the parts of the body and exploring the 5 Senses. As the weather changes, we will begin our topic of 'Seasonal Change' which we will return to throughout the year.
