Year 1 2023 - 2024
Class Teachers - Mrs Finch (Monday/Tuesday) and Mrs Wilson (Wednesday/Thursday/Friday)
Teaching Assistants - Mrs Halpin and Mrs Williamson
The children's learning experiences in Year 1 will become more structured this term with more group work and independent work. The children will still have the opportunity to learn through play, but this will mostly be in the afternoon sessions. As children progress through Year 1, we carefully structure the day to help them adjust to the change in teaching and learning style.
Spring Term Learning:
Our class topic this half term will be 'Great Fire of London.’
In English, our text this half term is 'Katie in London'. We will be learning to:
- Punctuate sentences using a capital letter and a full stop
- Use some question marks and exclamation marks
- Use ‘and’ between words and some clauses
- Use simple description to add detail and interest
- Write simple sentences linked to the topic
- Write in the present tense
- Link ideas through subject or pronoun
In Maths, we will focus on place value to 20 and extend this to 50. The children will also learn different strategies to add and subtract within 10 and then 20. Later in the term we will learn about measure including mass, volume, length and height.
In Religious Education, our topic is 'Families and Celebrations’'. During this topic we will explore what family means to use and introduce the concept of a Church family. We will also learn about the Sacrament of Baptism.
In Science, our topic is 'Animals'. We will be learning to group and categorise animals and describe their features.
In Computing, we are starting to learn about early coding. Children will be introduced to language such as algorithm and debugging. Early coding will start with giving and following instructions and programming BeeBots.
We also have lots more exciting learning planned in PE, Forest School, Music, Art and Computing.
Children should come to school wearing their PE kit. All earrings should be removed before the PE lesson, if your child is unable to remove their earrings independently, they must be removed before school.
