Year 1

Welcome children and parents to the 2017/2018 Year 1 page.

 

In Year 1 this year we will be learning lots and having fun. During the Autumn Term we will be learning about ourselves in science, naming basic body parts and learning about our five senses. 

 

Our Power of Reading text for this half term will be The Jolly Postman and other people's letters. We will have lots of fun re-reading some of our favourite fairy tales and learning how to write letters of our own.

 

In maths we will be forming numbers 0 - 20 correctly using lots of exciting materials to support us in our learning, we will learn to identify and represent numbers using

objects and pictorial representations including the number line, and be able to use the

language of: equal to, more than, less than (fewer), most, least.

 

 

This year we will be learning how to write in cursive handwriting, forming our letters correcting starting and finishing in the right place.

 

On Wednesday 13th September, a spacecraft crash-landed in our Year 1 classroom!

As you can see from the note that they left, they were keen to find out as much as they could about Human Beings! Year 1 are on a mission to help, learning all about ourselves, the parts that make up our bodies and our 5 senses.

We made a start by having a look at ourselves, using mirrors and we drew some fantastic self portraits.
