Please click on the Power Point link underneath to learn about life in year 1!
A very warm welcome to our Class 5 page!
Our teachers are Mrs Williams, Mrs Farrell, Mrs Razzaq and Mrs Liaqat.
In Year 1 children make the transition from the Foundation Stage to the National Curriculum. Their confidence blossoms as they quickly develop the skills to become even more independent in their learning. We learn through practical and concrete activities and work as a team to develop our knowledge and understanding.
We look forward to a very busy and fun year where we will all have our time to shine!
Class 5 have P.E. with Mr Dave every Thursday morning. Please make sure your child comes into school wearing their PE kit on this day.
Home learning and Phonics books will be given out on a Wednesday and they are to be returned to school on the following Monday. If you have any questions about the home learning please see one of the team.
Your child's reading book will be changed twice a week. Please make sure that they have their reading bag in school every day. Thank you for hearing your children read every day and supporting them on their learning journey. It really does make such a huge difference and we really appreciate your support.
Our first half term topic this year is 'All About Me'. This theme is a great way of starting our new journey in Year 1 and helps us to focus on what is amazing and unique about us and the importance of friendship and family.
In History, children will share things they remember from their lives and will use chronological language to describe how they have changed over time.
In PSHE and RE, Children will be talking about their family and people who are special to them. They will have discussions about how we should care for each other.
In Geography, we will be enjoying lots of outdoor practical activities to develop our basic mapping skills. We will explore the local area surrounding our school and look for landmarks such as the canal and Pendle Hill.
In Science, we will learn all about the human body and be able to label body parts and what they do; children will also identify the five senses and which body part is associated with them.
In Art, children will learn a range of drawing techniques to draw self portraits.
English - This half term there will be a focus on letter formation, using phonics to segment words they wish to spell, using finger spaces, capital letters at the beginning of a sentence and full stop at the end. Basic sentence structure is our main focus.
Maths - Our main focus areas will be sorting objects, counting forwards and backwards, identifying one more and one less, comparing numbers to identify which is smaller and larger, ordering objects and numbers on a number line, addition and subtraction of objects using a part-whole method, and number bonds to 10/20.
Phonics - All children will be learning phonics every day within a small group. Most children will be recapping phase 2 and 3 to embed previous learning before moving forward.
