Term 1

Welcome to Year 1, Term 1!
We hope you have had a brilliant summer break and are well rested and ready to learn. We have a very exciting year ahead!

 

Science / Geography

We will be looking at and starting to identify a variety of different everyday materials and their properties, as well as compare them in a range of ways.

Over the whole year we will be looking at the changing seasons and weather patterns.  As it is September, we will be starting with Autumn!

We will be looking at the different seasons and studying how certain objects in the environment change from season to season.

Can you find some objects to bring in and show that are related to Autumn?

Some websites to try:
Weather and Climate - KS1 BBC Bitesize
BBC Schools - Weather
Met Link

R.E.

Our key question is: What do Christians believe God is like?

In this unit, we will be using a series of questions to discover more about Christianity, including:
How Christians demonstrate their faith in God;
How Christians worship and praise God;
How we can identify a parable and start to name familiar parables in the Bible.
How we can link parables to our own actions in everyday life.


 

Art / Design Technology

 

Our Art and D.T. will be linked to our Science topic of Weather. Please watch this space for any junk modelling requests!

 

PE

P.E. this term will be Dance.
P.E. days will be confirmed by the end of Week 1 at the Meet the Teacher event.
While we have specific P.E. days, it is important that children have their P.E. kits in every day in the event of a workshop, and as the weather starts to cool down, that children have appropriate outdoor wear.
 

Worries or concerns

A worry or concern is best addressed as soon as it occurs, so please let us know so we can try to sort it out before it becomes enormous! We can talk most days after school, or if more convenient we can make a phone call and talk to you on the phone. Just write a note to us and ask your child to pass it on, so that we can arrange a suitable time to talk things through. 

Phonics screener 2018   Image result for keep calm its just a phonic screener

Year 1 Blog

English

This term in Year 1 we have been looking closely at the phonics we know and how to use them correctly in our writing.

 

Maths

In Maths this term we are starting to look at money, capacity and the four operations.

 

History and Science

We are continuing to learn about plants in our world and around the world and Castles in Kent.

 

Positive Action

We are nearly at the Castle of self improvement - thinking about how to behave in a mature and sensible way.

 

Phonics

Please continue to practice the phonics sounds from RWI.

 

These are the Read Write Inc phrases that go with the sounds (please note not all sounds have a phrase).  Not all children will have been taught all the sounds, but your child should be able to tell you which ones they have learnt.
