Spring Term 2020
Welcome back to school and welcome to Year 1. This half term, our topic is 'On Safari'. We will be going on safari to Kenya and will be comparing the country of Kenya to the UK, considering the weather/climate and the human and physical features.
This half term we will be reading the book 'The Lion Inside'.
The children will be absorbed in the text through a range of writing opportunities. We will continue to work hard remembering all the things we need to be a good writer e.g. capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. We will also be applying our mastery targets which we have been working hard on (for example, using 'and' to join two sentences or ideas together.)
In Maths, we will be working hard to deepen the children's understanding of number and place value (within 20). We will focus on learning how to add by counting on and subtract using concrete objects and number lines/ten frames.
Read Write Inc. sessions will continue to develop 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 www.ruthmiskin.com for more information.
