Hello Year One,

This is the class page for Year 1 where you can find important information about our class and what we've been up to.

Our class teacher is Mrs Richards and our class TA is Miss Wescott. Our topic for this term is  Disasters. At the bottom of this page, there's a link to our curriculum overview, showing what the children will be learning in each subject this term.

 

This term, our PE days are on a Tuesday afternoon and Friday morning. Please send your child dressed in their PE kit on these days. Remember long hair should be tied up and earings removed on these days. 

 

If you have any questions that can't be answered from the information below, please contact either the school office or Mrs Richards.

Our Christian value this term is generosity. 

 

Here is our curriculum map that shows all of the things we will be learning about this term!

Year One information Power Point

Week Beginning 21st September

 

English

This week the children will be learning about non chronological reports and what they are. We will look at how to use a coordinating conjunctions within a sentence and why they are good to use. The children will also be researching pigs to find out lots of interesting facts that they can later use in their own reports.

 

Maths

This week, the children will be continuing to work on their numbers to ten. We will be comparing numbers using our crocodile friends we learnt last week. We will also be ordering numbers and objects to 10. To finish this unit we will also be learning our ordinal numbers and how useful they can be.  

 

        

 

 

 

Non-core - Science 

For the next two weeks our non core block is Science, we will be exploring the habitats in our local area. We will be discussing how flooding affects this area. We will go to Knowl Hill Common and use our outdoor area to find different habitats. Following this we will find out about the needs of living things within those habitats and how the habitat provides for them.

We will also be making a shelter for mini-beasts whose natural habitat has been lost through flooding.

 

P.E.

Please make sure that your child is dressed in appropriate PE on Tuesday  and Friday.

When practising spellings Year 1 are encouraged to sound out the word. Can they spot the special friends? (two letters that make one sound, such as ay). Each week the spellings are linked to the sounds they have learnt.

 

Fun activities to learn spellings:

  • Use shaving foam 
  • Use sand
  • Air writing - spell the word in the air and someone says what word they are spelling.
  • Making the words out of playdough, blue tac or pasta.

 

Below is a list of year 1 common exception words.

Additional Phonics

We have learned all our sounds but it is really important to keep practicing recognising and reading these sounds in a variety of words!

 

The children love to play this bingo game:

https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/bingoOriginal/index.html

 

Alphablocks is a children's show that focuses on sound learning and blending which can be interactive and you can find this on YouTube:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_qs3c0ehDvZkbiEbOj6Drg/featured

 

This website will be helpful for parents to understand how to pronounce each of the sounds and other useful information about phonic skills:

Please ensure that you are reading the Read Write Inc books sent home three times before moving on to the next book.
