Autumn Term 2020-2021

I am very much looking forward to settling the children into an exciting term of learning in Year 1. I understand Year 1 can feel quite daunting but I can assure you that everyone will love all the learning I have in store for you!

Please remember to check our page regularly for further information and any changes to our usual practice due to the current situation. We know that some children may feel uncertain about the return to school and we want to assure that we have made robust plans. Please read the letter which was sent out to you at the end of last term and which is saved here on our class page.

In English lessons we will start by looking at labels, lists and captions to help us to understand writing in the simplest form before moving onto writing a simple story. We use brilliant books to inspire our writing in Year 1.

 Please read daily with your child at home to build up confidence, greater decoding skills and reading. In Year 1, we have a Reading Challenge for every 14 days consecutive nights reading your child will earn 10 house-points and their photo displayed on our ‘Reading Challenge stars’.

In Maths we will begin by counting and sorting objects up to before finding one more/one less and comparing numbers. Later, we will look at addition and subtraction using numbers up to 20. 

We will also be learning lots of exciting things in science, art, music, ICT, history, geography and staying active in PE lessons with Premier Sports. 

I hope you all have a lovely summer and I look forward to seeing you on your return to school in September. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or concerns.
