Welcome back for the final half term in Year 1
Friday 2nd June | 1 comment
We have been busy planning another exciting half term. We have new role play areas – 1GJ have a cafe and 1S have a fruit and vegetable shop. There is also a seaside area and rock pool in 1GJ.
In Literacy we will begin with a week of reading, writing and performing poetry about summer and the seaside. We will then read Billy’s Bucket and the Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch and look at settings. Our Design and Technology lessons are linked to Literacy and we will be designing and making our own sandwiches and writing instructions about how to make them.
In Maths we will continue to develop our addition, subtraction, multiplication and division skills. Then we will finish the year with two weeks of money and a week of measurement.
We will be looking at lots of maps, globes and atlases in our Geography lessons. We will compare Farsley to the seaside. Thank you to the parents who have volunteered to join us on our local Farsley walks – we still need more helpers please! The children will also learn about human and physical features, aerial maps, keys and how to use a compass. They will also look at World maps and name the oceans and continents. Can your child already name any of them?
We will be learning about Grace Darling in our History lessons. We have arranged a visit from the RNLI who will talk about their work and water safety.
In Science we will be learning more about types of plants. We also have a free workshop booked with the RSPB – where we will have fun being ‘Science Detectives’ and explore our amazing school grounds with an expert! Don’t forget the ‘S Factor’ competition – auditions will be held during the week beginning the 19th June. (Details will be sent home during the first week back.)
We also have our trip to Blackhill Woods, pirate day, sports day and a skipping workshop to look forward to.
Phew!! Another action packed half term in Year 1.
We are looking forward to seeing you all on Monday.
