Latest news from Year 1

Autumn 2

This half term our theme is “Friends and Family”, which will focus on understanding what a family is, and how important our friendships are.

All About Friends All About Families  

 

In English, our key text is “All about friends”, a non-fiction book explaining what it means to be a friend and the qualities we need to be a good friend. The children will learn the differences between a fiction and non-fiction book, how to navigate a non-fiction book, and will ask and answer questions about the text. They will write their own recipe for being a good friend, using finger spaces, capital letters and full stops.

In maths the children will be learning about addition and subtraction. Recapping number bonds for 10 and learning number bonds for 20. Understanding that addition means the total will be bigger and for subtracting it will get smaller. They will learn how to solve problems using addition and subtraction within 20.

Weather Seasons  

In Science we will continue to observe the weather and understand how seasonal changes affect us. They will learn what the 4 seasons are, when they happen and the features of each season.

In theme the children will explore their local environment. As Geographers, they will learn to find where they live on a map and explain where they live. Keep an eye out for an important delivery explaining what they have learnt. As Historians the children will learn about how things were different a long time ago for their parents and grandparents, identifying objects that belonged to the past. In PHSCE they will be exploring what it means to be different and recognising why diversity is important.

The children will also be learning and practising for their festive performance.  Using drama and singing skills to bring their characters to life.

Autumn 1 Review - Incredible Me!

Last half term our theme was “Incredible Me!” which focused on learning to celebrate ourselves.

This is Me

In English, our key text was: This is me!  The children learnt to write simple and complex sentences. They learnt how to make predictions, answer questions about the text and write their own independent stories using finger spaces, capital letters and full stops.

In Maths we learnt about place value. The children learnt how to solve problems using numbers to 100, explaining and justifying their answers.

In PHSCE the children considered why rules are important both in and outside of the classroom. They discuss what makes a good friend and why having friends is important. In theme the children  learnt about things in the recent past comparing what they could do as babies with what they can do now. The children explored a number of portraits by the artist David Hockney, looking at expressions, colour and texture to recognise different emotions.The children then created their own mixed media portraits showing emotion through colour and texture.

We have observed the weather and seasonal changes that have taken place in our local environment. Keeping a weather chart to record our findings. The children also be learnt about their bodies, labelling the main body parts e.g. arms, legs, head.

The children settled into life in Year 1 very well, and have made progress with their learning already.

Autumn 1

Both classes have already settled well into the new routines of a different year group. Well done Year 1! The children have shown fantastic behaviour, listening and team working skills.

This half term our theme is “Incredible Me!” which focuses on learning to celebrate ourselves.

In English, our key texts this half term are: This is me! and A Superpower like mine.  The children will learn to write simple and complex sentences. They will learn to predict, answer questions about the text and write their own independent stories using finger spaces, capital letters and full stops.

In Maths we will be learning about place value. The children will learn how to solve problems using numbers to 100, explaining and justifying their answers.

In PHSCE the children will consider why rules are important in and outside of the classroom. They will discuss what makes a good friend and why having friends is important. In theme the children will learn about things in the recent past exploring events in their grandparents’ lifetime and comparing what they could do as babies with what they can do now. The children will observe art work showing different emotions and decipher what the artist is trying to portray. The children will then create their own portraits showing emotion through colour.

Throughout this half term we will be observing the weather and seasonal changes that will be taking place in our local environment. We will be keeping a weather chart to record our findings and will also be carrying out a seaonsal walk. The children will also be learning about their bodies and will label their main body parts e.g. arms, legs, head.

We can’t wait to get started and very much look forward to the exciting learning journey ahead!
