Welcome back to the second half of the Autumn term! Leading up to Christmas, we are continuing our transition into Year 1 with our carousel activities, which have been very successful so far.

In English we are continuing to explore stories by Julia Donaldson and will be looking at Room on the Broom, The Gruffalo, and Stickman. The children will continue to learn about adjectives and to develop their understanding of good sentence structure, and we will explore different types of writing including descriptive and instruction writing.

In Maths we will be focusing on subtraction, working practically, pictorially and with number sentences. We will also look at number facts, sequencing days and time, and solving practical problems related to measures.

In science we will be exploring key scientific skills and developing an understanding of what it means to be a scientist through fun experiments.

We will be continuing with our Explorers topic and focusing on different continents like North and South America.

Please remember that homework and spellings will be starting this half term and will be on the Google Classroom. Spellings are on Monday and homework goes out on Thursday.

We greatly appreciate all of your ongoing support, thank you.

The Year 1 Team.
