Year 1K 2019 - 2020
Welcome back to the spring half term! We have got lots of interesting and exciting things planned over the next few weeks in Year 1.
In RE we will be looking at the Easter story and discussing why this celebration is important to Christians. We will be discussing how this links to new beginnings at spring time and the meaning behind Jesus dying for us on the cross.
In English we will be looking at how and why we write letters, how to write instructions and exploring new texts. We will be joining in with World Book Day and spending a week looking the text Wizard of Oz. We will explore the characters from this story and will plan and write our own letters to The Wizard.
In maths we have been measuring different objects by using cubes and rulers. We will also be moving onto capacity, data and revisiting addition and place value.
We will continue to focus on our science topic of plants and will be planting and growing our own bean plants! Through this we will be able to observe the different changes and stages in a plants life and we will continue to do so over the next half term. We will then move on to looking at the seasonal change from winter to spring.
In history we will be looking at various local heroes from the area of Manchester. This will include past and present heroes and we will be looking at what they have done to be considered a ‘hero’.
In DT we will be continuing to look at Homes and the different types of homes and houses throughout the world. We will be also designing and using different materials to create our own houses. In Art we will be learning about the artist Anthony Gormley and how his 3D sculptures can inspire us to create our own similar pieces of art.
Please make sure your child has their reading books and reading records in school every day to ensure they are getting new books each week. PE kits must also be in school every day for children to take part. Homework is given out on Fridays and needs to be completed by your child and returned the following Thursday. Please continue supporting your children with their phonics development as this is crucial to their progression with phonics and their reading.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the year 1 team.
Thank you and we look forward to another great half term.
