Year 1

Year 1

Welcome to Year 1. We can’t wait to see you on Thursday 7th September 2017.

The Year 1 class is led by Miss McCall. She will be helped by Ms Ndoko and Mr Thompson.

This half term our topic is London.  We will be learning all about our Local Area including our ever changing school grounds!

We will practise phonics, reading and spelling in our Read, Write Inc. lessons and will write in a variety of genres in our Literacy lessons. We will focus on some lovely stories including; Bear about Town, Katie in London and the story of Peter Pan.

In Maths, we will be practising counting and writing numbers, making number bonds and number patterns and adding and subtracting.

In Science, we will look at everyday materials. We will be learning to identify different materials, finding out what materials are magnetic and carry out some exciting experiments.

Autumn One

In Puffins, we have made such a fantastic progress with our learning! We have been learning all about London and maps in geography. In science, we have been testing and describing materials. We have produced some fantastic writing inspired by Peter Pan and our Maths is progressing each day.

I am excited about all the fun we will have next half term with our new topic, TOYS! Please collect and bring in cardboard tubes (such as kitchen roll) for our DT toy project. In Maths, we will look at shape as well as consolidating our place value and addition and subtraction. Some stories about dinosaurs will inspire our upcoming Big Writes and we will learn about plants in science.

Please remember your PE kit every Thursday and a (reusable and named) water bottle each day. Make sure you work on your home learning project. Keep enjoying your reading and I'll be looking to see who is challenging themselves on Mathletics over the break!

Autumn Two

Puffin class have begun to explore the wonderful world of toys. We are exploring the history of toys to consider how they have changed over the years. In DT, we have begun to design and test ways to make rolling toys for toddlers. Last week we had a fantastic outing to the park where we looked at leaves and learnt about deciduous and evergreen trees.

In Literacy, we had great fun learning, performing and writing rhyming poems. We are now reading a story about teddy bears. Over the next few weeks, we will be looking at information books about toys. In maths, we are now working with numbers up to 20 and continuing to practice our addition and subtraction. You can help your child by talking about number problems in everyday life (counting objects, adding up money etc.)

Please remember your PE kit every Thursday and a (reusable and named) water bottle each day. There have been some brilliant home learning projects joining our display. If you haven’t brought yours in yet – they are still welcome!


Spring One

Happy New Year! Last half term, Puffin class have had a great time learning about Toys. In Literacy, we were looking at non-fiction texts and writing our own fantastic versions.  In Maths, we were practising counting back and subtraction, using number tracks. In DT, we were investigating different rolling toys and making our own roly-polys. All of the Year 1 team are so proud of how well Puffins have been working. A big well done to all of you for last term!

This half term, we will be learning about weather in our new topic, ‘We are Weather Reporters’. In Literacy, we will look at stories such as ‘Come on Rain’, weather poems and fables.
