We are READERS!
Phonics is very important in Year 1 as children will take the Phonics Screening Check in the Summer Term. To support our teaching of phonics we encourage children to read at least 3x a week at home, alongside the word homework sheets we send home with our school reading books. These are linked directly with the phonemes the children have been learning that week.
We are WRITERS!
In Autumn 1, we will be focusing on writing simple sentences remembering to include, capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. Our theme is ‘Once upon a tower’ and our key text is ‘Rapunzel’ by Bethan Woolvin.
We are MATHEMATICANS!
This term, we will be focusing on numbers within 10, exploring addition and subtraction. We will also be looking at 2D and 3D shapes.
We will be continuing the mastery number programme from EYFS.
We are SCIENTISTS! We will be learning about the season of Autumn leading into Winter!
We are HISTORIANS! We will be learning all about Robin Hood!
We are ARTISTS! We will be learning to weave in the style of Anni Albers.
