Welcome to Year 1!
Teachers- Miss Billing, Ms Liddell.
Teaching Assistants - Mrs Wrightson, Mrs Sampson, Mrs Higby
We hope everyone had a great Easter holiday and are looking forward to Summer 1.
This half term we are finishing off our topic 'Starry Night' which has a focus on the Van Gogh painting. We will be learning about the artist and his work. We will be learning about colour and mark making which will include some painting. We will then move onto the topic 'Why is water precious?' where we will learn about the different uses of water and link this to growing plants.
In Maths we will be developing our number skills. We will focus on aspects such as doubling numbers and we will also start basic multiplication and division skills through areas such as adding repeated groups and sharing equally.
In English we will be focusing on securing sentence writing. We will be writing stories linked to our topic work. We will also be continuing our work on daily reading and phonics while developing the children's knowledge of sounds. We will have a big focus on phonics in the build up to the Year 1 Phonics Check in June. We will be sending home homework linked to the sounds we have been learning and also real and nonsense words. If you have any questions about the phonics check please do ask a member of the Year 1 team.
