Year 1

Welcome to Year 1.

The adults in 1H are Mrs Harris and Mrs Kane. The adults in 1S are Miss Snape, Mrs Roberts, and Miss Regan.

We have enjoyed getting to know our new classes and we look forward to a fun year of learning new things.

Reading a new book called Our class is a family. We look forward to learning more about your families and sharing a bit about ours.

As mathematicians, we are reactivating our learning from reception focusing on the ordinality and cardinality of numbers both forwards and backwards. We are remembering good counting rules to support our learning.

In science we are focusing on the human body and labelling its body parts and senses. We will then compare humans and animals discussing similarities and differences.

In art we are learning about drawing a variety of lines using a variety of pressure to make it lighter or darker. We will then create a self-portrait in the style of Arcimboldo using fruit.

During our DT lessons we will learn more about where our food comes from and autumnal fruits and vegetables. We will learn more about smoothies when looking at Annabel Karmel and will then have the opportunity to design and make our very own autumnal smoothies.

In PE this half term we will recognise the importance of a warmup and cool down to prevent injury. We are learning more about movement and dance using a variety of equipment and musical stimulus.

Weekly Routine:
Friday Please ensure your child has a weather appropriate labelled PE kit in school. PE kits will be sent home every half term to allow you the opportunity to wash their kit.  

Home school diaries:
These will be checked on a Monday and Thursday each week, please ensure you record your children’s reading and any messages. Our school expectation is that your child reads at home a minimum of 3 times a week.  

Forest School:
Forest School Friday will occur fortnightly, with each form taking turns. Forest school is due to begin Friday 22nd September. Please ensure your child has a long sleeve top, long trousers, and suitable footwear i.e. wellies or walking boots. Please label all clothing and footwear.
