Welcome to Year One!
We are so excited to be starting the year by looking at “A Day In The Life” as our IPC topic. We're talking about different jobs in society and what skills are needed to do each job. We’re also thinking about what we’d like to do when we grow up. To help us do this, we're going to make a short film which features various characters who have different roles in our imaginary community. We'll also be looking at jobs from around the world and how the same job might vary in different cultures.
In Maths we’re continuing to develop our number awareness, focusing on the 2x, 5x and 10x tables. We're practising our problem solving skills and learning how to work together effectively as a team. In English we’re exploring traditional tales from around the world and looking at key features of story writing. We’re using our phonics knowledge to help us read and write accurately and expand our knowledge and understanding of different words. We’re also trying really hard to use adjectives and WOW words to make our writing even better, so please keep reading and writing together at home!
As always, we really value parental support and engagement with our learning and anything you'd like to do at home to extend what we’re doing in class would be fantastic! Please bring in photos of what you've been up to, so we can share our learning successes with one another as a learning community.
