Autumn Term 2018


Welcome to Year One! We hope you had a relaxing summer holiday and made lots of memories with your children. Miss Vickers (Class 6), Mrs Watts, Mrs Lonsdale (Class 5) and Miss Morgan ( Class 4) are all full of enthusiasm for the coming term and working with your amazing children. We are excited for the journey ahead of us! 

During this half our topic is 'Houses and Homes.'

In Literacy this term we will focus on the traditional tale of 'Goldilocks and The Three Bears and then our class book 'Goldilocks and Just The One Bear.' Children will write their own version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears using Goldilocks and Just The
One Bear as a model. We shall focus on a change of setting for Goldilocks and the Bears, and the type of animals that could be in their story instead. Eventually they will have created their own version of the story. We will also write an information page about bears.

This term in Maths, we will be continuing to work with the children to develop and deepen their understanding of numbers around us. We will learn about numbers through exploration and fun, interactive and collaborative activities. We will focus on place value and we will also be learning how to add and subtract using concrete objects and on a numberline. 

In Science, our topic is Humans, where the children will identify, name, draw and label the basic parts of the human body and say which part of the body is associated with each sense. We shall also begin to learn about Materials where the children will distinguish between an object and the material from which it is made and identify and name a variety of everyday materials.

In Art, we shall be looking at cityscapes and houses by the artist Gerrard. In Geography, we will be looking at the local area of Ellesmere Port and learning about physical and human properties.

We will begin Read Write Inc. to continue developing the children’s reading skills as they learn their sounds, segmenting and blending whilst also developing their comprehension skills. If you would like to help your child to practise their phonic knowledge for reading at home, then follow the link for more information.
