Autumn Term 2017
Welcome back for a new exciting term.
The overarching topic this half term is the Beauty of the Earth. It will include looking at the world around us and the beautiful things we can find in nature, ways we can protect our planet and investigating the animals that live on Earth. RE will continue this theme, discussing the creation story in Genesis and about the Creator of the world.
In literacy we will be working hard to improve our phonic skills, learning alternative graphemes and practising our segmenting and blending skills.
Through looking at a variety of stories, we will make predictions and inferences about the text and learn to describe characters and settings.
We will be practising our cursive writing and using punctuation in our sentences.
Numbers to 20, number facts to 10 and problem solving skills are a few of the key areas we are going to cover in maths.
PE this year will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, a change from the days already announced.
We all look forward to an enjoyable and interesting term.
If you have any questions or queries please don't hesitate to contact any of the Year 1 staff at the end of the day. We will always be happy to help.
Thank you for your support.
Miss Shona Macgregor and the Year 1 staff.
Our topic this half term is School Days. We will be learning about schools from the past and the history of Knightlow. We are hoping to find lots of interesting facts about life at our school since it opened.
In Literacy we will be concentrating on our phonics and looking at non-fiction texts.
In Maths we will be consolidating our number bonds and learning about place value.
As we approach Christmas we will be looking at Jesus' birth and why it is important to Christians.
