Welcome to Year 1

We are very proud of how the children have settled into their new classrooms and routines.

Our topic for the first half term is who are we. The children have enjoyed exploring the doctor’s surgery role play areas. In Science we have been learning about the different parts of our bodies, our senses and what we use them for. The children pulled some funny faces when tasting the lemon!

In English we have been exploring different books such as Owl Babies, Kipper’s Birthday, Funny Bones and The Tiger who came to Tea. The children have worked hard to retell these stories. We have been focusing on remembering to include capital letters, full stops and finger spaces within our sentences. The children have also been working hard on various writing challenges within our areas of provision. 

Our maths work this first half term has focused on writing numbers 1-20 as words, representing numbers 1-20 in a variety of ways, finding one more and one less than a given number, using number tracks, number lines and hundred squares to support our learning and recording number sentences by putting the +, - and = signs in the correct place.
