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

Autumn 1 

We have all settled really well into our new class! Within school everyone has been given a 'bug buddy'. Throughout the week we get lots of opportunities to get busy with our bugs! We have also used them within other subjects as well.. In Literacy we have been looking at sentences. We have all written a sentence about the name of our bug buddy by segmenting individual sounds in words. We will begin to write a sentence each week about our bug buddy, using capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.

In Maths, we are trying hard to count forwards and backwards to 20 in steps of 1. We are beginning to recall 1 more and 1 less than a given number and order numbers from smallest to largest. We will begin to explore number bonds to 5.

Throughout the half term we will continue to practice our letter and number formation.

In Science, we have been learning all about our bug buddies, what they eat, their habitats and where we would find them. We have also been starting to learn and explore our different senses through practical investigation. 

In History we will begin to look at different ages and being able to order these. Within Geography we will also begin to look at different types of houses and their features.

In P.E this term we have Cricket Chris every Wednesday as well as Multi Skills on a Thursday. 

Autumn 2

This term our topic is Space! Within the classroom we are exploring the SPACE STATION where we pretend to be astronauts! 

This term in PE, we are having fun practising our football skills with Conor as well as beginning to practise and develop our gymnastic skills.

In Literacy, we have been thinking about words that rhyme and writing a rhyming string.  We are going to be reading fiction and non-fiction books which are linked to our topic work. We are also writing sentences using a capital letter, full stop, using finger spaces between our words and using conjunctions to link our sentences together using 'and' and 'because'. We have also began to use adjectives to describe and extend our writing!

In Maths, we are counting forwards and backwards to 20/30. We are working out number bonds to 5 and 10 using different methods (numicon, part whole method and arrays). We have began to look at partitioning our numbers. 

We have been learning fun and interesting facts about Neil Armstrong and we are going to be finding out why Helen Sharman is a significant person.

Year One children are going to be learning about nocturnal animals and we are going to be exploring Winter and how the seasons have changed.

We are discussing how to be a kind friend, friendship and fairness.

We are ALL looking forward to beginning our Christmas crafts!!
