Year 1

This term in 1R

Welcome to 1R. We are beginning the year with our first topic which is ‘All about me’. Our next topic will be ‘Explorers’. In phonics, we are recapping our phase 3 sounds and will be learning phase 5 sounds. We will have handwriting practice each week to encourage correctly formed and neat letters. Further practice at home will be fantastic. In literacy, we are beginning our first text ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’. We will then move onto writing labels, captions, and instructions. In Autumn 2 we will start a range of different texts. In numeracy, we are going to be very busy focusing on place value, addition, subtraction and problem solving. PE will be on Tuesday and spelling tests will be every Thursday. Homework will be handed out every Thursday and is due in on the following Monday.
