Welcome to Year 1!

We have been very impressed with the way in which Year 1 has been settling into their new routines and timetables. Thank you very much for your help in encouraging them to be independent and come into the classrooms on their own.

In English, this half- term we are focusing on retelling and writing about The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson. We will be acting out the story, writing about it using finger space, capital letters and full stops.

In maths,  we are looking at the numbers from 0 to 20 and investigating all the different ways we can make each number. In addition, we will be counting and ordering numbers to 20 and beyond where appropriate.

Our topic work this half -term will cover Science and Geography. In science, we are learning about the human body and the five senses and in Geography we are investigating the World, looking at our local area (Richmond Park) and its human and physical features, and 3 Continents, Australasia, Asia and Antarctica.

We would really appreciate your help in reading with them regularly at home. If possible, 5 to 10 minutes each night.

If you have any questions please let your class teacher know. Thank you once again

The Year 1 Team.
