Year 1

This term in 1R

We are beginning the year with our topic which is ‘Exploring China’. Our next topic is ‘The secret life of plants and animals’. In phonics, we are recapping our phase 5 sounds and focusing on blending, reading words and sentences. We will have handwriting practice each week to encourage correctly formed and neat letters and numerals. Further practice at home will be fantastic. In literacy, we are focusing on poetry learning ‘Down behind the dustbin’. We will then move onto ‘The three little pigs’ writing our own stories. In Spring 2 we will learn a range of different skills and focus on different texts including “Superworm”. In numeracy, we are going to be very busy focusing on time, place value, addition, subtraction and measurement. PE will be on Wednesday afternoon this term and spelling tests will be every Thursday. Homework will be handed out every Thursday and is due in on the following Monday.
