Year 1 Autumn Term 2019

In English we will be learning to use labels and captions. We will be trying very hard to master a perfect pencil grip and practising our pre-cursive letter formation. We will also spend time reading and performing poetry.

In Maths we will continue to develop our understanding of number by focusing on place value, addition and subtraction. We will also look at the properties of shapes in Geometry.

In Science we will be focusing on animals including humans. As part of this, we will learn about our bodies and classifying animals.

In Computing we will be learning some basic computer skills such as how to use the laptops safely.

Our theme this term is called ‘Let’s Remember’. In our theme we will be exploring our local war memorial and investigating how and why we remember those who fought in the wars. We will also use our art skills to make our own remembrance poppies.

In PE we are developing our gymnastics skills and practising different ways to move with our bodies through dance using different media such as ribbons, sound and stories to encourage different types of movements.

We look forward to a fun filled Autumn Term with Year 1!
