Year 1

Hello everyone and welcome to Year 1.

Homework

Class Newsletter

 

Welcome to Year 1.

Welcome back - we hope you had a great half term. We have some exciting things planned and some information that we would like to share with you.  Please do ask us if you would like to know anything more about what we are learning or doing this half-term.

Mrs. Venn, Mrs. Gill and Ms. Kerai.

This half term our topic is Time Travellers and we will be exploring London! We will be learning about London across our curriculum. We will be finding out about our amazing city, looking at both the geography and history of the area around us. We will be looking at the fantastic buildings and features in the centre of London, such as Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament and the Tower of London.

Mathematics:

In mathematics we will be looking at division by sharing and grouping. We will be learning how to solve one-step problems involving multiplication and division, by calculating the answer using concrete objects, pictorial representations and arrays.

 

We will then move on to adding and subtracting one-digit and two-digit numbers to 20, including zero. We will use different methods to do this , including the number line method.

 

  • Children should continue to practice their number bonds to all numbers to 20, counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.

English:

During this half term we will be learning about stories with familiar settings. We will begin by looking at the story of Paddington Bear and his adventures in London. This will provide the children with the opportunity to explore different types of writing such as postcards, letters, retelling and finally inventing our own stories about a lost toy .

Homework:

Homework will be given out on Mondays and expected back the following Monday. Please make sure your children complete the daily English and Maths tasks and sign the sheet and comment as to how they got on. In addition to these tasks there is also an additional arts and crafts project that the whole family can create together.
