News from Year 1

 

Happy New Year and welcome to the Spring Term in Year 1!

 

There are only few minor changes this term.  We have introduced a daily guided reading session every afternoon which will continue until the children leave us in Year 6!  For those who don’t have older children in the school, this is a twenty minute (or so) session which involves listening to a group of children share a text whilst the other groups undertake individual reading based activities.  Don’t worry – this is in addition to listening to children read individually.

Otherwise, the only notable change is that PE now takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays.   In terms of topics, we will be looking at Spring and Growing in Science and our new Geography topic is based on Journeys – more specifically the journey our food makes to our plates.  Hopefully, we will be able to grow and cook some of our own food once the weather is a little kinder.  In RE we will be thinking about “Belonging” and how babies and children are welcomed into different faiths. 

 

In Year 1 we learn to:
