Willow & Blossom - Year 1
Welcome to Year One!
Welcome to our Year 1 Class Page.
Our teachers are Mrs Caldwell, Mrs Eastham, Mrs Clarke, Mrs Fisher Jones and Mrs Houghton.
This term we will...
English - We will continue to have our daily phonics sessions. The sounds covered in class will be highlighted inside your homework folder. We will be exploring different texts including 'Wanted: The Perfect Pet' and 'Arthur'. We will also be looking at Christmas texts later in the term.
Maths - We will continue to practise work on number to build on what we have done in Reception. We will continue counting in 2's, 5's and 10's. We will develop our addition and subtraction skills. We will also introduce multiplication and division.
Topic - Our topic is Ourselves. In science, we will be learning about different body parts and exploring our senses. Our topic in Geography is based around our school. We will be looking at birds eye views and talking about the human and physical features of our school. In computing we have been programming bee-bots and developing our use of positional language. In the computer suite we are using Microsoft Word to create inserts for our Christmas cards. We are practising changing the size, colour and style of our font (if you would like to have a go at this at home!)
Our PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. As Christmas approaches, our hall is required for Nativity practice so we may miss the occasional PE lesson. However, we still have access to our outdoor area throughout the day so we have lots of opportunities to develop the skills we have looked at so far (underarm throwing, aiming at a target etc.)
