Autumn 1 2018 Fairy Tales
Year 1 are focusing on Fairytales and traditional tales and we be acting out, learning and then writing about stories including Billy Goats Gruff, The Gingerbread Man, The enormous turnip, three little pigs and Cinderella. In maths we will be focusing on number and fluency with lots of counting and number recognition to ensure the basics are well established. As part of our transition from Year R we are continuing with Meadow Mornings for the first half-term. Children will be learning about materials in science and looking at weather and the seasons during our new ‘outdoor learning’ sessions. In computing children will be learning the basics of logging on and opening programmes and applications on a variety of devices and Art and design will start off by exploring colour mixing and portraits. Children have two PE sessions each week on a Monday and Thursday. In Gymnastics they will be following a unit called flight and in Games sessions they will be learning football skills.
Roll Up, Roll Up!
Welcome to the Fairfield Circus...
We are setting sail and learning all about Pirates this half term. We will write some poetry, learn about continents and seas and have a very exciting trip to Action Stations to start the topic.
In Maths we will be doing lots of work on number and place value. It would help if you could do lots of counting in 2s, 5s and 10s backwards and forwards.
We will continue to send spellings home on Wednesdays and test them on Mondays.
PE days are Wednesdays and Fridays. Please make sure children have all their kit and tape or remove earrings.
Spellings will be tested on Monday and given out on a Wednesday. Please practise writing the spellings in a sentence.
Each half term you will get a 'maths menu' of practical activities to choose from.
Please speak to us if you have any questions about Year 1.
