Year 1

Welcome to the Year One hub page. We are looking forward to getting to know you and your children this year. Please check this page regularly as we will be sharing our children’s work with you on a regular basis. So far in Maths this term we have been focussing on numbers to 100 and simple calculations. Children have been introduced to one step problems and perfecting their number formation and recall. In English this term we have been looking at instructions and stories. We linked English to our topic through Handa’s surprise and made African weaving mats by following instructions and then recreating them. In Topic, we have been learning about the tribes of Africa and weather. We have also been looking at facts about different African animals. Next term we will be continuing our one step problem strategies and learning about 2D and 3D shapes. In English we are going to be learning about traditional fairy tales, poetry and narratives. Our topic lessons will include learning about African animals in more depth and about the different countries in Africa. Year 1 is the year of Phonics. Towards the end of this year, in June, all of the children in Year 1 will undertake the Year 1 Phonics Screening Test. The children will have 40 words to read. Our goal is for all the children to pass the screening. Please look towards the bottom of this page to find websites to help your children practise these skills at home. We look forward to getting to know you and your children better over the course of this year! If you have any questions about how your child is doing at school, please don’t hesitate to contact, myself, Mrs Fenyn or Mrs Dobbins; alternatively, come and see me at the end of the day.
