'The boys lay in bed, in their mould-covered room, trying to keep warm and ignoring the empty feeling that was gnawing away at their stomachs' – this piece on 'relative poverty' is such an important read: https://t.co/9wjOtWwE1u https://t.co/Q7lTIm5Rqy

Hello everyone and welcome to Year 1.

Welcome to Year 1.

Year 1: Wonderful Me!

This half term our topic is ‘Wonderful Me’ and we will be exploring our senses and finding out lots of interesting things about our bodies. We will also be exploring how our bodies let us experience the world around us by using our amazing senses.

We will be finding out about the five senses, learning through practical science by investigating and explaining how our senses work. We will learn how to carry out investigations to explore each of our senses. We will also be comparing the differences and similarities in our senses and those of other animals.

We will be having our Wonderful Me “Wow” day this half-term. On this day the children can come to school dressed as something that describes one of the five senses. We will be taking part in lots of different fun activities; these will include various science experiments and creative activities. We will also have an opportunity to go on senses walk and make a sensory wall!  The date for this has been confirmed as: Wednesday 24th January.

 

English:

During this half term we will be looking at stories which involve using our senses and using descriptive language to write about sensory experiences. This will provide plenty of opportunities for exploring language and building our vocabulary and using our knowledge of adjectives.

 

We will begin this half term with learning the story ‘Can’t You Sleep, Little Bear?’, mapping and re-writing using our familiar ‘Who? Where? Where next? Why? What goes wrong? Who helps? Where last? Feelings?’ format.  Throughout this, the children will be gaining knowledge and understanding of writing accurate, exciting sentences, and they will finish by inventing their own stories linked to the Amazing Senses theme.

Following this, we will be writing explanation texts linked to our science learning, and finish with some persuasive letter writing.

Mathematics:

We will begin this term by securing our understanding of two-digit numbers, focusing on Place Value (that is, what the value of each digit actually is). We will them move on to counting, and calculating with different number operations using them.

Following this, we will be continuing our work on fractions and then using our developing knowledge to ‘tell the time’. For example, half past, quarter to and quarter past the hour.
