Welcome back Year 1

Friday 15th April | 4 comments

We have another busy and exciting half term ahead. We have planned lots of super activities, trips and visitors.

In literacy we are focussing on Traditional Stories including Jack and the beanstalk and the Three Billy Goats Gruff. We will be looking carefully at the characters and using lots of adjectives to describe them. We will also be writing our own versions of traditional stories. Our Design and Technology this half term will be linked to literacy and we will be designing and creating bridges for the Billy Goats to use. We will continue with our guided reading and phonic sessions and will be revising all the digraphs in preparation for the phonic screening in June. In our grammar lessons we will be learning about prefixes, suffixes and plurals.

In maths we are using our addition and subtraction skills to solve worded problems and missing number calculations e.g. 6 + ? = 10 and ? – 5 = 3. We will also be revisiting multiplication and division.

In science we are beginning by learning about seeds, plants and life cycles. We will be visiting the school farm to plant lots of seeds. Look out for them growing in the Year 1 corridor. We will also be learning about animals – types, habitats and life cycles. Our trip to Rodley Nature Reserve and the ‘Animals in Tuition’ workshop will support our science work this half term. Please can you make sure that your child has a pair of Wellington boots in school as we will be visiting the farm during the first week and the grounds are still muddy.

Our PPA time will be on a Wednesday and will be taught by Mrs Cruse. She will be teaching RE, music and ICT.

Phew! Another exciting half term in Year 1! We are looking forward to seeing you all on Monday.
