Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

Our topic this half term is 'Time Detectives'. 

Will we be using our thinking skills to investigate clues and work as a team to solve puzzle and learn about different eras of history. We will become Time Detectives and discuss different historical event throughout time and see what we can discover along the way. 



In English, our texts are “10 things I can do to help my world and The Dinosaurs Diary”. 

We will be learning how to use our capital letters and full stops in the correct places and forming sentences so that they make sense. We will also be learning different ways in which we can help our planet and be kind. Finally we will be looking at how to find answers within a text and looking at a range of persuasive and non-fiction reports. 



We will be exploring number and place value to 10, by sorting objects into groups. We will also be looking at how to order numbers using vocabulary such as greater than and less than. In year 1 we will also be learning our number bonds to 10 and exploring how we can add and subtract a range of numbers. Finally, we will learning how to describe the movement of a range of objects.



We will be exploring animals and humans and finding out which groups they belong to and how they are similar and different to each other. We will also be exploring our senses and what each of them do and also looking at different types of food and habitats. 



Homework will be sent out on Friday to be returned to school each Wednesday for marking.  The ‘menu’ type homework allows children to choose which homework they would like to do each week based on what subjects interests them the most.  Please date the menu to show which homework has been completed each week.


Reading Records are to be in school every day whether your child has read or not, this is so we can record any comments that we may have during Guided Reading sessions. Reading books may be changed daily if the Reading Records have been signed by an adult to show a book has been read. All Reading Records are checked on Monday, Wednesday and Friday to ensure that children are reading regularly at home.  Online books can also be accessed on ‘Bug Club’ through the Active Learn website.
