Year 1


In English, we are continuing to develop our understanding of how to read and spell through our phonics lessons. We have been working on writing clear sentences remembering our capital letters, fingers spaces and punctuation.


We are looking at stories set in Africa. We are looking at Giraffes Can’t Dance. We are exploring new vocabulary and finding out what the words mean. We are using our reasoning to describe characters from the story.


In Maths, we have been looking at measure. We compared objects to see which was longer and which was shorter. We have been looking at number bonds to ten and twenty. We are looking at how we group numbers when adding by using a variety of objects.


In Science, we are learning about Materials. We are naming different materials and are describing what materials objects are made from.  


In Computing, we are focusing on internet safety and developing our basic computer skills.


In PSHE, our unit is Dreams and Goals. We are looking at what we have achieved and what we want to achieve in the future.


We are learning about My Personal Best. It uses PE to teach a variety of skills. Our key skill this half term is integrity. We are learning to show integrity in a variety of different contexts. This helps us transfer the skills to other lessons, life in school and the wider environment.
