Autumn Term 2019
Welcome to Year 1! We are about to start an exciting transitional year where we will be learning how to become independent learners. During this first half term we will be introducing key mathematical concepts , focusing on number bonds to 10 and starting to compare numbers using vocabulary such as greater than, less than and equal to.
Our ‘Author of the Month’ is Roger Hargreaves. We will be focusing on his Mr Men and Little Miss stories for the first few weeks back, using these as a stimulus to base both guided and independent writing activities. We will then move onto the Talk for Writing text ‘Little Charlie’ which retells the journey of Charlie from his home to his Grandma’s house with a few surprises on the way. This first half term we will be looking at our ‘everytime toolkit’ when writing. We will be practising the key elements such as capital letters, finger spaces and full stops as well as stretching out words to make sure we are writing all of the sounds. As in Reception Class phonics will be taught daily. PE will take place on Tuesday afternoons. We will be outside for PE whenever possible so please ensure your child has a suitable PE kit in school.
