Welcome to the year 1 page! Year 1 is a really important year in your child's education, as they move away from the Early Years Foundation Stage and onto the National Curriculum. We have developed our curriculum to make it highly creative and we link to fantastic high quality texts that are really exciting to read.
The Year 1 Team
The teachers in Year 1 are Ms Andrews (Year Lead), Mrs Leeson and Miss Young. We are supported by Mrs McEwen, Ms K, Ms Clarke, Ms Alvarez and Mrs Ahmed .
What we are learning this term
During the Spring Term in our ‘We are Geographers’ topic we will be looking at the UK and the four countries within it. In English we will be focusing on several books with the theme of friendship and caring for each other. Throughout the term we will continue to work our writing sentences and including adjectives and conjunctions within these. We will be using Colourful Semantics to help us construct sentences, like the structure below:
The heavy rain fell on the lonely robot.
In Maths, we will be continuing to work on numbers within 20 and exploring how many tens and ones within a number. For example, 13 has 1 ten and 3 ones.
We will then move on to addition and subtraction within 20. Using our number facts to help us add.
