Upcoming Dates & Events for Year 1
Welcome to Year 1!
Spring Term 2
This half term we are going to be learning about ‘Space’. We will be finding out about space travel and learning about Neil Armstrong and Tim Peake.
We will be reading a selection of fiction books about ‘Space’ including Beegu by Alexis Deacon, The Man on the Moon by Simon Bartram.
On Monday we heard a strange sound in our outdoor area. When we went outside to investigate we found these strange objects. Where could they have come from?
Autumn Term 2018
This term our topic is The Global Garden. We have read ‘The Curious Garden’ and have enjoyed creating our own curious gardens in class using different resources. We have been learning about the Kilmorie Quality ‘Curiosity’ and used our own curiosities to explore the wild garden and looked for things that we found interesting and wanted to find out more about.
We will also be reading ‘Handa’s Surprise and Anansi and the Turtle. We will be re-enacting stories, creating our own books and hot seating story characters.
Here are some useful links to the storys that we will be reading in class:

Our maths focus this term will be to count, read and write numbers to 20 and addition and subtraction within 10. So far we have been using our number knowledge to create number lines indoors and outdoors, joining in with counting songs and creating numbers with chalk, water, bodies, tyres, crates and transient art.

This is the online reading scheme which allows your child access to hundreds of books at the click of a button. Your child can read them with you or when older & more confident, independently. Each book contains comprehension questions to boost reading skills. Points collected for completing the questions correctly can be used to play games. All of the books can be read to your child by the computer too.
Logins & passwords are held by your child’s teacher and have been sent home in a letter. Please encourage your child to access the website as often as possible.
