“Educating our children with the skills they need to live fulfilling lives.”

 

Year 1 Learning Letter 

Autumn 1

We are enjoying being back at school doing LOTS of busy jobs! We are getting to know one another and the children are settling into their new classrooms very well.

This term, we are writing captions, CVCs and beginning to write a sentence. We are concentrating on using a capital letter to start a sentence, a full stop to end a sentence, finger spaces between our words and trying to get our letters on the line.  We are beginning guided reading and handwriting.

In Maths, we are counting forwards and backwards to 20, one more than, one less than and working out calculations involving the following symbols: + - = . We are also going to be ordering numbers.

Spelling books are introduced and reading books are sent home.

We are available for a chat, so if you have any concerns, questions or queries please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Autumn 2

This term, we are writing rhyming strings, writing our own rhyme, writing sentences using a capital letter to start a sentence, a full stop to end a sentence, finger spaces between our words, letters on the line, using conjunctions.  Adjectives will be introduced.

In Maths, we are continuing to count forwards and also counting backwards.  We are counting in steps of twos, from 0 to 20.  We are working out number bonds to 5 and 10, addition and subtraction calculations. 

We are focussing on kindness and sharing this term.

Please continue to practise weekly spellings at home with your child and to read daily, fiction and non-fiction texts.

We are going to be doing MANY FUN Christmas crafts and activities!
