Welcome to Year 1 Class!
Autumn Term 2017
Welcome to the Autumn Term and we hope you and your child are looking forward to a great year of learning!
This term our history topic will be 'Time Travel'. We will look at a range of different historical events that happened in the past, starting with the dinosaurs.
In Science, our topic will be materials. We will be exploring a range of materials and exploring their properties. For example, working with dinosaur figures frozen in ice and devising an investigation to release them.
In English, we will start be writing our own stories about time travel. We will also be looking at non-fiction writing and poetry.
In Maths, we will be securing our knowledge of number sense (the fiveness of five) and place value which will include ordering and comparing numbers. We will also be working through different methods of addition.
In Child Initiated Learning the children have the opportunity to show their learning through play and continue to build upon the strong foundations they developed whilst in the Early Years.
We are really looking forward to a great year with the class, and we hope you and your child are too!
If you have any queries or questions please do not hesitate to catch us or make an appointment via the office.
Please do keep checking back for updates, and follow us on Twitter if you aren't yet doing so - this will give you an excellent insight to all of the learning that Mars and the rest of the school get up to.
