Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

[Class Picture Coming Soon]

 

Class teacher: Mrs Ruffle

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Freer

 

Welcome to Year 1. We hope you have had a brilliant summer holiday and enjoyed all of the amazing sunshine!

In literacy we are looking at one of Mrs Ruffle’s favourite stories… ‘The Three Little Pigs’. We will be learning the story and retelling it in various different ways and eventually we will be on the hunt for something around school!

If you have any books for this story please feel free to bring them into school to share with the class.

 

 

 

This term our topic is ‘All About Me’ and we will be learning lots of different things about each other over the next few weeks.

 

In science we will be beginning to look at ‘Seasonal Change’. We will be making equipment to help us measure different types of weather, creating seasonal art and thinking about how the weather changes throughout the seasons. This is a topic that we will be looking at throughout the year.

  • Re-reading our work to check it makes sense.
  • Using capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

                       Maths             

In Year 1 maths is taught through practical activities where children will get to apply what they have learnt in different ways, e.g. games, word problems, investigations of length, weight and capacity etc. Here are some of the learning objectives we will be covering throughout the year.

  • Count to and across 100, forwards and backwards.
  • Read and write numbers to 100, in numerals.
  • Count in multiples of twos, fives and tens.
  • Solve one step problems in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
  • Use number bonds and subtraction facts within 20.
  • Solve practical problems for length/height, weight/mass, capacity and time.
  • Begin to record different measures.
  • Recognise and name common 2D and 3D shapes.
  • Tell the time to the hour and half past the hour.
