Year 1S 2020 - 2021
Welcome to 1S
Welcome back to the spring half term! Firstly, I would like to say a big well done to those of you who were on Google Classroom. You were all superstars! It has a been a strange start to the year but you have amazed us with your determination and attitude.
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, poetry and exploring new texts. We will be looking at a number of different books such as Handa’s Hen, George and the Dragon and the Great Fire of London nursery rhyme.
In maths we will be measuring different objects by using cubes and rulers. We will also be finding the difference between lengths, comparing and measuring weights, and revisiting addition and place value.
We will continue to focus on our science topic of Animals and Humans. We will be looking at various animal habitats, the diet of animals and mini beasts.
In history we have started a new topic which is all about The Great Fire of London. We will be sequencing the events on a timeline and comparing travel, jobs and buildings from now to 1666. We will also be developing our historical vocabulary through this topic.
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.
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 One team.
