Year 1

Update W/B : 24th September 2018

English and Maths information:


This week we will continue to focus on the adventures of Paddington Bear and use these to support our learning. We will continue to use our phonics to help us sound out words as well as looking at the features of a story.

The words of the week that the children need to learn to spell are; today, of, said, says, are.


In Maths this week we will look at place value and how important numbers are to our everyday life. We will look at how many different ways we can sort objects such as by colour, number, shape etc. We will also continue to embed skills we were introduced to in Reception such as one more and one less than a given number.

I have set a number of tasks for the children to complete on the MyMaths portal. A letter with their log in details was sent home on Thursday 13th September. This learning is to be completed over the course of this half term, you have until the 29th October. The tasks that have been set link with some of the areas that we will be covering in school.

Other curriculum news:

These week we will continue with our explorers project and will be learning the 7 continents and the 5 oceans that make up the world. We are then going to look at 2 significant explorers in History.

General Information:

Year 1 will be doing PE on a Monday and a Friday so please ensure all PE bags are back in school by next week.

Thank you

Year 1 Team
