Welcome to Year 1
Mrs. Ward and Miss.Fletcher welcome you to the Year 1 class page. We have an exciting year ahead of us in Year 1.
Our topic this term is Superheroes around the world. Our key question is What makes a Superhero? We will be looking at the key values of Courage, Responsibility and Community.
In Maths, we will be focusing on place value, addition and subtraction and shape.
In Literacy, we will be exploring different superhero texts: Traction Man and Superman. We will also be looking at some poetry and real life super heroes in our non-fiction text.
In Phonics, we will be re-visiting phase 3 and introducing phase 4. There is a link below to some useful phonics websites.
Creation is the topic for this half term in RE.
We will be exploring how superheroes differ in different countries and their countries of origin in Geography, as well as learning about the physical and human features of the countries.
Within our D.T. lessons, we will be making wooden puppets.
We look forward to an exciting term!
Our topic for the first half term was transport. Our key concepts were change and dreams. The key question was: Could we survive without transport? We are looking forward to our visit to the London Transport Museum in June! We explored the first forms of transport, such as sedan chairs which were used by wealthy people and looked at what a horse and cart was used for. We investigated the very first motor cars and how they have changed over time. We had many discussions about whether cars are safer now, or whether they were safer in the past. We also learnt how the steam train changed the way people moved goods and traveled.
In English, we went for an outing with Mr.Gumpy in his motor car and we went for a train ride to the seaside to visit Grandma. We enjoyed the repetitive nature of the class books.
In Maths, we looked at place value to 20, along with addition and subtraction within 20. We explored 2D and 3D shapes.
In Science, we investigated different properties of materials and which were most suitable for different objects.
In RE, our topic was Incarnation. We explored the big question: Why is Christmas so important to Christians? We created posters to show connections between Jesus' teachings and the way Christians should live.
This half term, our topic is castles. Our key concepts are wealth, power and peace. We are exploring the key question Did you have to be rich and powerful to live in a castle? We are enjoying our castle role play, which has been visited by the giant from Jack and the Beanstalk!
In English, we have re-written the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and will be writing some non-fiction texts later in the term.
In Maths, we are learning the numbers up to 50 (forwards and backwards) and counting in 2s, 5s and 10s with the help of our friend Jack Hartman. We will be solving addition and subtraction problems later in the term and working on measurement problems.
In Science, we are learning about plants, and what plants need in order to grow. We may even grow something ourselves!
In RE, we have been studying Salvation. The big question is: Why does Easter matter to Christians? We will be learning about the Easter story and thinking about why the festival is both a sad and happy time for Christians. We will also be visiting St.James' Church to explore how the church prepares for Easter celebrations.
In phonics, we are re-visiting phase 5 and have playing lots of blending games in preparation for the Phonics Screening later in the year.
