Welcome to Year 1
In English we are following the RWI scheme alongside our narrative. Our narrative work will be focused around the book ‘The Story Machine’ as children will be exploring story’s with familiar settings. We will begin our half term by looking at labels, lists and captions. The children will also be exploring a selection of stories with familiar settings. They will be looking at the different characters and settings, before creating their own story.
During this half term we will be concentrating on number. We will be focusing on the children being able to recognise, count, make amounts and write each number. We will spend several weeks focusing on a set of numbers for example 1-10 and will then move onto number bonds to 5 and 6. We will develop problem solving skills and incorporating shape, measure and time into our learning.
During science this half term we will be looking at the human body and our five senses. They will explore body parts, identify their names and discuss what we use them for. They will also investigate their five senses and explore how they help us each day.
This half term children will be exploring old and new toys through the theme of Elliot’s toy box and attic. We will discuss how toys have changed over time, focusing on how they are made what they are made from and the impact technology has had on toys.
