Welcome to Year 1!
This half term our topic is called 'Why do we play with different toys as we get older?'. This has a History and Design and Technology focus.
In Maths we will be learning how to represent numbers within ten, and use the language of fewer than and more than. As well as, to recognise number bonds to 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10. To double numbers to 5, to find half of amounts to 10 and to find one more or less. To compare and order numbers within ten.
In English we will be learning to write simple sentences with capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. We will also use adjectives to describe in our sentences and try to use our phonics knowledge when spelling. Some of our key texts include 'Dogger' and 'Harry and the bucketful of dinosaurs.'
In Phonics we will be consolidating sounds from phase 2 and 3 and then going on to learning new sounds n Phase 5. These will be shared on the weekly letter.
In History we will be thinking about the toys we have played with in our life time. As well as how toys have changed over a longer period of time.
In Science we will be learning about different materials such as metal, glass, wood.
In Design and Technology we will be exploring how toys move and then designing and making a rolling toy called a roly-poly.
In Core Skills we will be focusing on Learning with others.
P.E is on Wednesday and Thursday this half term, so please make sure the children have their P.E kits in school.
