Hello and Welcome to the Year 1 Page.
Autumn term! We have lots of exciting activities planned this term, all based around our topic of 'The Rescue'!
We will be learning all about different people in our community that help us and how to keep ourselves safe in different environments. We are planning on a trip to the local Fire Station where we will discover how the firefighters take care of us and their fire engines.
In English we will be learning how to write lists, information texts and the key parts of building a good sentence as we focus on the narrative of a story. We will even be linking our English lessons with the RE curriculum as we learn about why people celebrate Diwali. Each week, we will have dedicated handwriting lessons to help improve our writing which will focus on a specific letter and include some tricky words.
Science will focus on materials and we will be doing lots of investigations to see what properties different materials have and if they will float or sink. Music will be all about making different sounds that we might hear at the beach and we will even get the chance to make our own musical instruments!
Each week the children will get phonics, handwriting and maths homework which will link to what we are learning in school. This will be a great opportunity for you to ask your child lots of questions about what they have been learning and see all of their hard work in practise. PE will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and we will be focusing on dance and gymnastics to help with balance and movement.
Here's to a fun-filled first term of the year!
