Year 1 is a very important and exciting year for our children when they move from the Foundation Stage into Key Stage 1. We continue to build upon the progress the children have made during their Reception year and to encourage greater independence in subtle ways. We ask our parents to leave their children at the classroom door to give them responsibility for getting ready each morning. We recognise that it is sometimes more difficult for our parents than it is for our children!
We have been setting up our new classroom rules and have been familiarising themselves with their new surroundings. The focus for our PSHE lessons will be on settling into new routines. The children have had the opportunity to talk about settling into Year 1, voicing their worries and excitement. They will help to set classroom rules which will help to maintain a happy, focussed learning environment.
Our theme this term will be 'Once Upon a Time', a fairytale theme. The children will receive a letter from The Three Little Pigs, asking them to build a new house. They will be making masks and puppets of the characters to act out the stories in the home corner. We will also undertake an investigation about which material would be best for building a house and create a fair test to find out. We will talk about where we live and compare our own houses to The Three Little Pigs. At the end of the topic we will also have a WOW day, where the children can make gingerbread men, make shields and swords or tiaras and wands, and create their own story book.
Our daily Maths lessons will be based upon layered target steps. Targets this term will include place value, rapid recall of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, formal written methods of addition and subtraction and 2D and 3D shapes. Our Maths basic skills lessons will focus on reading and writing numbers to 20, time, using the +, - and = signs and fractions. We will also focus on counting forwards and backwards to 100, counting in multiples of 2s, 5s and 10s and number bonds to 10 and 20.
During our English lessons we will be looking at Talk 4 Writing to learn a variety of fairy tales through pictorial representations and actions. The focus on our first text of The Three Little Pigs will be story structure. next, we will be learning about the features of a character description and using nouns and adjectives to make our writing more interesting. Then we will introduce basic letter writing. During our basic English lessons we will focus on handwriting and punctuation.
In Computing, we will use Discovery Education for the children to explore how to create their own codes. They will learn how to make objects move in different directions and disappear. the children will be able to create, save and retrieve codes from the server.
Our PE lessons will focus this term on gymnastics and dance.
Mrs Powell will be teaching Music, exploring how to make different sounds with instruments and their voices.
