Year 1 2019 - 2020
In Year One, we work and play together, helping each other to achieve our best. We try really hard to work independently, persevere and aim high! We enjoy learning practically, exploring new topics and having fun!
Year 1 is a transition year as we start Key Stage 1 National Curriculum but we aim to make this as smooth as possible. Year 1 is a mixture of children learning through play and more formal tasks which will evolve by the end of the year so they are prepared for Year 2.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to make an appointment with me.
At the beginning of the year we will hold a 'Meet the teacher'meeting. Here, we will go through the plans and expectations of your child in Year 1 and ways in how you can continue to support your child's learning at home.
Spellings will be sent home every Friday to practise for a spelling test on the following Friday. Please practise daily with your child. These spellings are taken from the ' Year 1 Common Exception Words' list.
Science: Everyday Materials
In this unit, we will identify, name and sort a variety of everyday materials, including wood, plastic, glass, metal, water and rock. The children will then explore their properties by investigating the stretchiness and flexibility and absorbency and waterproofing of selected materials.
R.E. : Domestic Church - The Family
The children will know and understand that everybody belongs to the family of God; “You are the people of God; he loved you and chose you for his own” and that we are all made uniquely different. The children will develop their understanding that every family is different but God’s love is for everyone and everything.
Topic : Brainwave
As we start the new academic year we introduce the topic of Brainwave, where children will be develop an undestanding of how they learn.By ﬁnding out more about how we learn, and how we can improve our learning, we will be better equipped for meeting the many challenges ahead of us.
Topic : Treasure Island
This is an exciting topic which will cover the subjects; Geography, Computing, Art and Design and Design Technology. The children will explore and learn information about the islands that you find around the world, the islands that make up the UK and other locations, and the different features you see there. The children will have opportunities to plan a pirate treasure map by giving directions, using the four points of a compass and will learn how to speak like a real pirate; ‘Ahoy me Shipmates!’
We have planned a 'hook' (mind the pun) to introduce the children to the topic, where a pirate will come to visit Year 1 Pirate Crew on 17th September!
