Welcome to Year 1!

We have got 30 friends altogether in Year 1 and we are all working hard to reach our targets!
This year we are starting off with a Science topic all about our senses. We are going to be doing lots of hands on practical work, exploring what we see, feel, hear, see and smell. Later in the year we will be covering topics about toys and different jobs people have.
In Maths we are going to start by focusing on number and calculations, involving addition and subtraction. We will also be practising our 2, 5 and 10 times tables as well as learning about shapes, money, measurement and time.
Our Literacy texts this year will start with the story ‘Where’s my Teddy?’. We will then move on to texts about monsters, Handa’s Surprise, different Traditional tales and the superhero story called Traction Man! We will be writing letters, designing posters, writing our own stories and creating information texts.
As you can see we are going to be very busy – keep up with what we are doing on our blog page
