The children will be learning about different types of animals and how to group according to their species, learning and naming parts of the body and the five sense
The Year 1 team have been incredibly proud of all the children. They have settled really well into the new routines of a different year group and are making some fantastic progress. Well done Year 1!
This half term we have been concentrating on feelings and emotions, we have used The Heart in the Bottle by Oliver Jeffers as our main theme book.
The children have written some fabulous independent sentences and some have even written some simple stories.
In PHSCE the children loved making their own worry monsters. They chose from a range of materials and designed their monsters, they then gave their monsters all their worries to eat.
We also thought about things which were really special and the things that we loved. The children made a very long list
It has been lovely welcoming back the children after such a long period of time. We are all incredibly proud of all the children. They have settled into their new year group very well and have adapted to the new routines of the class bubbles.
This half term, our theme is Feelings and Emotions. We will be exploring our feelings and sharing our experiences. We will be reading the text ‘The Heart in the Bottle’ by Oliver Jeffers, which covers a range of feelings: happiness, joy, excitement and sadness. As part of our English lessons, we have been concentrating on writing simple and extended sentences. We have also been practicing writing our names independently.
Through our theme we will be learning about positive and negative emotions, our moods and worries that we may have and ways to manage our feelings.
In Maths we will be learning to read, write, order and compare numbers to 20 and above. Alongside this the children will be learning to form their numbers correctly. We will be learning about one more and one less than numbers to 20. The children will be counting forwards and backwards to 20 and beyond. We will also be adding and subtracting using a range of resources and images.
This half term our theme has been Footprints in the Snow. We have been finding out about Polar animals and how they survive in cold climates. We have also been learning about the four seasons and the types of weather we have in the seasons. In PHSE we have been discussing how to keep safe and who they can go to if they do not feel safe. In RE we have looked at Special places and special books for Islam and Christianity.
In Maths we have been learning about multiplication and division using pictorial representations and concrete objects. We have been learning our 2, 5 and 10 times tables and how to use arrays to represent them.
In English we have enjoyed reading the story Footprints in the Snow. We made predictions, used a decision wheel and used expanded noun phrase to describe the characters. We have also written our own versions of the story.
