Year 1

This term in 1R

This half term our topic is ‘Recycling’. We are focusing on what recycling is, why we should recycle and how we can recycle all in preparation to use recycled materials to design and construct our own robots.  Our next topic is ‘The secret life of plants and animals’. In phonics we are continuing to learn our phase 5 sounds. In literacy we are beginning our new text ‘Litterbug Doug’. We will then move onto writing labels and captions, an information text and finish the spring term with Super worm. In numeracy we are currently focusing on time. After we will learn about place value, addition and subtraction, measurement, multiplication, division and lastly fractions. PE is still on Mondays and Fridays and spelling tests will continue to be every Thursday. Homework will continue to be handed out every Friday and due in on the following Tuesday. Our library session has changed to Monday lunchtimes. If you have any library books at home please ensure the children return them so that they can swap them for a new one.

If you are interested in coming in during an afternoon on Tuesday to Thursday to help with reading please could you let me know. Thank you, Miss Richmond.
