Year 1S 2018 - 2019

Miss Seasman

Welcome to 1S

Welcome to Year 1! We hope everybody has had a lovely summer break. The children have started Year 1 with a positive attitude and have quickly settled into their new routine. They seem excited and eager to learn lots of new and interesting things and hopefully this enthusiasm will continue!

During this half term the children will be focusing on weather and the different seasons of the year. This will be part of our Geography subject and so far the children have greatly enjoyed observing, discussing and predicting different types of weather.

In Art we will be looking at the life and work of Gustav Klimt and the many famous paintings, patterns and drawings that he created. In Science the children will be learning about different materials and their properties.

Our topic in RE is God’s creation story and towards the end of this half term we will be learning about harvest. All our RE lessons will include a reflection time which will encourage children to think about our religious learning. It will be a lovely opportunity to discuss and engage with the children about their actions and feelings. 

In Maths the children will develop their skills in counting, sequences, addition and subtraction and begin to learn about time and money.

In English we will be looking at different types of text, including stories, poems, songs and patterns.

The children will soon all receive a new reading book; we would therefore like to ask that they bring their reading books and reading records into school every day. Please read with your child regularly to ensure good progress is being made. They will read in school with an adult 1:1, once a week, and will also have their books changed.

The children will receive homework on Friday and should return this by the following Thursday. Spellings will also be sent home on a Friday, please support your child with learning their spellings each week.

Both Year 1 classes have PE three times a week; we suggest that your child leaves their PE kit in school for the half term to ensure they have their full kit for their PE sessions.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask a member of the year 1 team.

Thank You
