Welcome to the start of a new school year. Once again we are ready for great learning in Chiradzulu Year 1 class and we are loving our new crop of kids!
This term we will be consolidating on the phonics covered in Reception as well as introducing sentence work. There is a lot to be remembered..... correct letter formation, writing on the line, using capital letters and full stops and a finger space between words! Our main focus will be word work and sentence construction. In Grammar we will be learning about nouns, verbs and adjectives to help with our great writing. Emphasis will be placed on learning tricky words and correct spelling of high frequency words.
This term we will be learning about place value, one step problem solving, addition and subtraction within 20, basic measurement, time and shapes. Most activities will initially be hands on, before moving onto the more abstract activities. We will be learning about number bonds to 10, tens and ones place value houses as well as learning to count across the 100 square from any given number.
This term as part of celebrating our silver jubilee of the school we will be looking back at history, particularly that of the school. History is quite a tricky concept for young children, so we will start with what we know, how we have changed since we were babies. We will make a simple timeline over the past 5 or 6 years of life. In Geography we will learn about where in the world do we fit in - our home, our city, our country and our continent. In Science we will be learning "All about Me", Our bodies and daily weather patterns.
