Everyone Valued, Everyone Learning

Welcome to Year 1

Welcome to Beech Class

Welcome to Pine Class

Our topic for this half term is Transport

For our immersion, we found out what we already know about transport and we were able to name many types!

We were also able to make observations about how different types of transport have changed over time.

In English we are using bossy verbs to make our own Road Safety Booklets, we are also continuing our non-fiction writing by producing reports comparing different types of transport and how they have changed over time. We will develop our fiction writing to include adjectives, a variety of punctuation and different sentence starters.

In Maths we will build upon our work around multiplication and introduce sharing (division) as well as revisiting place value. We will introduce the language of time and learn how to tell the time to the hour and half past.

In Science our mini topic is Plants. We went on a plant hunt and will be learning about the different parts of plants and looking at similarities and differences.

In Computing we will use our IT skills to design an imaginary vehicle and also look at moving robots as well as making our own moving vehicle in DT.

In RE we will be learning about the special books of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. We are looking forward to Mr Kram coming in to talk to us about the Torah Scroll and sharing why it is special to him and his family.

Our areas of study in PE this half term will be dance and attack & defence games. 

In RHE (Relationships and Health Education) we are thinking about 'Relationships'. We will be looking at families, making friends, greetings, people who help us and being our own best friend.

This half term Daily Mile turned 10! We had great fun celebrating by trying to run ten laps.
