Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

I am Mrs Bacon and am delighted to be teaching Year 1.

In our class we are supported by Miss Lee, Mrs Orga and Miss Bartley.

The children have all settled in well and we are looking forward to beginning 2023. Our learning will begin to be more formal as we move into spring, but don't worry there is plenty of time for learning through play too!

This term our topics are Seasonal Changes and Bright Lights, Big City.

We have P.E on a Monday

Spring Term Learning

This term in English we will be continuing to focus on story telling - reading stories and telling stories from memory and telling our own stories. We will then be writing instructions, letters and our own stories too! We will continue our work on letter formation, finger spaces, capital letters, full stops and forming sentences.

In Reading and Phonics we will continue to read individually and as a group, developing our Vocabulary, Inference, Prediction, Explaining and Sequencing skills.

In Maths we will be focusing on addition and subtraction as well as continuing our work on place value and understanding of number.

In Science we will continue our learning about the five senses and begin learning about seasonal changes.

We will be learning about how to stay safe on line in Computing as well as using a computer for maths.

Our History and Geography topic combined is Bright Lights, Big City. We will be learning about the geography of London as well as London in history.

In Art and D.T we will be using a variety of media to represent the weather.

We will be taking part in the PSHCE Curriculum and completing the topics: ‘Dreams and Goals’ and ‘Healthy Me’.

In PE we will be focusing on Invasion games, dance, skills, sending and receiving and gymnastics.

All of the curriculum information can be found on the curriculum page on the website.
