Year 1

Welcome to Year One and the Spring term!


We hope that you all had a lovely Christmas and look forward to a successful 2020! Miss Martin is very excited to join Year 1 and is looking forward to getting to know all the children, parents and carers. 


This term in Maths, we will be adding and subtracting numbers to 20 and learning our numbers to 50, as well as learning all about place value. In English, we will be looking at stories with predictable phrases,writing some stories of our own and learning to write instructions. 


'The Great Fire of London' is our creative curriculum topic this term and we have lots of exciting activities to help us learn all about it. 


We are keeping active with P.E. through dance and team building games. P.E. this term is on a Monday and Wednesday so P.E. kits (indoor and outdoor) need to be in school with name tags on all items of clothing. P.E. kits will be sent home every half term.



Reading - the school expectation is that all children will read a minimum of 3 times a week by Friday morning with a conversation about what has been read followed by an adult signature.


Spellings - the spelling rule or pattern for the week is taught on a Monday and all children will be tested on a Friday. Spellings will be given in their reading record and this is where we will record the children's scores also.


Number bonds (number stories) - the school expectation is that children will access Numbots 5 times a week. These are short, sharp sessions aimed at improving children's number
