Curriculum information Year 1 Autumn 2018

September 28th 2018

The children in Indigo Class have settled in really well. We have been learning about the greater than and less than signs in Maths and we have been revising the speed sounds in English. We have been learning about the six main animal groups in Science and we’ve been learning how to log on to the school computers.

May 4th 2018

In Indigo Class we have been learning about place value and we have been identifying how many tens and ones are in 2-digit numbers up to 50. We have written alternative endings for Little Red Riding Hood. We have also been learning about the main parts of a flowering plant. In RE we have been looking at pictures of a Christian Church, a Synagogue and a Mosque and discussing their similarities and differences.

In Indigo class we have been learning about subtraction and counting back using a number line. We have been writing, reading and talking about ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ in literacy and we have written a new ending for this traditional story. We have been practising our song for the Easter Service and we have been thinking about the question “Where is God?”

February 16th 2018

We have been carrying out lots of science experiments in Indigo class. We have been finding out
if different materials are bendy, transparent or opaque and finding the most suitable waterproof material to make an umbrella for teddy.

February 2nd 2018

In Indigo class we have rounded off our Space topic by making rockets out of junk materials. We have really enjoyed ourselves!

 

January 2018

We have been ‘out of this world’ in Indigo Class talking about all things space related. Our writing and artwork has been inspired by the story, ‘The Way Back Home.’ In PE we have been exploring the moon and jumping like astronauts and we have been designing our own aliens and rockets. In maths we have been learning about subtraction and solving lots of problems.

Autumn Term 2017

The children have settled into life in Year One really well. We have been learning about the six main animal groups (mammals, amphibians, reptiles, insects, fish and birds). The children are currently very busy making their wind-up toys out of Pringles tubes. We have started learning the songs for our nativity play and the scripts will be sent out before the half term. We all love the story of poor old Maurice the mule. We hope lots of parents will come along and watch us in December!

May 2017

The children in Year 1 have been learning about plants. So far this term we have looked at the structure of flowering plants and trees. We have painted beautiful pictures of Claude Monet’s ‘Water Lily Pond’. We have been focusing on how to use capital letters and full stops correctly and in maths we have been looking at equivalent values of coins and dividing groups of objects into halves and quarters.

September 2016

The children in Y1 have settled into their new classroom really well.

They have been producing some lovely independent writing and have been enjoying their ‘Read, Write, Inc’ sessions. They have been learning to tell the time, measure the length of objects and they have been adding numbers and coins together. Their throwing and catching skills have really improved over the past few weeks. They have been learning about the animal groups, Florence Nightingale and about Christian symbols. I’m sure you’ll agree that they all sang beautifully at the Harvest Service.

We’re now looking forward to performing our nativity play in December.
