Year 1

Welcome to the Summer Term! Our topic this term is Holidays, and we will be travelling to Australia, North and South America, China and many other amazing countries to learn all about them. We will also be learning some very important map skills, which we may need when we go to Ufton Court at the end of term!
PE is still Tuesday morning and Thursday afternoon, so please can you ensure your child has their PE kit in school on these days. We will soon start preparations for the children’s first Sports Day since being in Primary school!

WHAT ARE WE DOING THIS WEEK? – Week Commencing 27 June 2022

This week in Maths we will be learning about money. We will be identifying coins and notes, and ordering them in value from smallest to biggest and biggest to smallest. We will also begin to look at finding different ways to make the same amount of money.

In English we will be concluding our Talk for Writing unit on the story Billy the Brave Knight.

We will now write up the middle and the end of the story, focussing on using capital letters for peoples names, correct punctuation and using our phonic knowledge to write unfamiliar words. We will be developing our resilience in writing sustained pieces of work.

In Phonics we will be looking at the different ways to make igh (igh, ee, i-ee)  and ow( ou, oa)

Many thanks for your continued support,

Mrs Clifford, Mrs Whittaker and Mr Brown

WHAT HAVE WE BEEN UP TO?

For our Stunning Start to our new topic, Year 1 have been making bird food. We used suet, sunflower seeds and raisins and hung them around our school grounds. We had lots of fun!

 

Year 1 spent the afternoon painting poppies, currently decorating our classroom.
