Welcome to Year 1
Please find below a copy of the Year Group Information from the beginning of the year.
Welcome to the Autumn Term!
Year 1 have had a fantastic start to the new school year. We are enjoying our topic of finding out all about toys including toys we play with, toys which were played with in the past and toys from around the world.
In our creative zone we have painted toys, made collages of our favourite toys and made split-pin teddies. We have been busy writing about the story, ‘Peace at Last’ in our writing zone and we even wrote an invitation to our favourite toys from home inviting them into school for a party!
In our maths zone, we have been using Numicon to make ‘teen’ numbers and to help us to add and subtract. We have also been learning to recognise coins and their values. The discovery zone has been fun but messy, exploring different types of materials such as jelly, foam and play dough.
Welcome to the Spring Term!
Year 1 have got a very busy half term planned! We are looking at our local area in our topic lessons including using maps.
We will also be designing and making a gingerbread man. Linking in with Science we will be making a fairy tale house out of different materials.
In Science we are learning about materials. How can you distinguish between an object and the material from which it is made? Can you name and identify everyday materials such as wood, plastic, glass, metal and rock? Can you describe the simple properties of everyday materials and group them? We’ll know all the answers by the end of the half term!
