Welcome to Year 1
Our class teachers are:
Year 1 have had a fantastic start to the school year with a fabulous trip to Colchester Castle. We were lucky enough to see how people lived in castles many years ago. We look forward to finding out much more about castle life as the term progresses. At the end of term we will be celebrating our fabulous history learning with a castle exhibition. In maths this term we will be focusing on numbers to 50, consolidating and extending our knowledge. We will also be learning how to measure accurately. Please help your child practise number formation and counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s at home. In English we will be covering various text types and developing our skills as writers. We will be learning about the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and writing information leaflets about castles. Reading continues to play an important role in our learning and we hope to broaden the children's experience of authors and genres. In science this term we will be learning about materials and their purposes.
*Year 1 will have PE every Wednesday and Friday (please make sure kit is named).
*In Year 1 children are expected to read every day. Children will continue to gain their reading chains.
