Welcome to Year 1 – Y1GWB
Miss Geeleher and Miss Walker – Baxter with Teaching Assistant Miss Parrott
What Mysteries Belong to the Sea?
Year 1 have had an amazing autumn term and have worked so well in areas of learning. A personal favourite for Miss Geeleher and Miss Walker-Baxter was going to the Bolsover castle and of course the Christmas production of ‘The Lost Girl’. The children were brilliant and still remember the dances and songs!
So now onto the Spring term!
In literacy we will be building on our skills and applying them to writing captions, letters and instructions. We will be looking at the text ‘Sharing a Shell’ by Julia Donaldson which links to our under the sea theme. We will continue developing our sentences and working on capital letter, full stops and question marks.
In maths we will be building on our number knowledge by working with number to 20 then 50. We will be adding and subtracting numbers and making sure we know our number bonds to 10 and 20.
We are also going to become marvellous at measuring. We will learn to measure the height, length and weigh of objects using non-standard measure like bricks and beginning to use a ruler to measure in cm.
In curriculum our big question is ‘What mysteries belong to the sea’? We will be learning about the continents of the world, where on a map we will find Sheffield and London, points on a compass and how to design and make a boat!
We will be researching famous ocean explorers and creating some art work to support our curriculum. We look forward to showing you all our fabulous work during our showcase event later in the term.
Look out for information on our exciting trip to ‘The Deep’.
Thank you to all our parents who read daily with their child. Please continue to support us with this and any questions please ask. Remember we will test your child on their new spellings every Friday.
Any questions or special events you want to share with us will always be welcome.
