All About Year 1

Establishment Phase Booklet - year 1 2019

Autumn Term

This term we are having lots of fun getting to know the children in our classes.

We are discovering our senses and what our bodies can do. Earlier this term we found that there had been a dramatic crash landing by a UFO next to Mr Dunn's classroom. We were all very keen to investigate the area. After reading Dr Xargle's Earthlets, and receiving a message from space, we have been writing to the aliens to explain what it is like to be a human being.  Check out the video below.

We have also been learning about the countries of the United Kingdom and using Google maps to find out where they are in relation to Bognor Regis.

In the second part of the term we will be exploring Toys and looking at how they have changed over the years. We will be making our own toys and having a visit from Brighton Toy Museum. Towards the end of term we will be inviting you to our Christmas Concert, more information to come.

Spring Term

Maths

This term in maths we will be exploring shape and ordinal numbers. We will then explore numbers 0-20 in a variety of ways.

Children will be able to:

  • Count up to and beyond 20
  • Understand place value
  • Compare numbers within 20
  • Order and spot patterns within numbers to 20

Literacy and Topic

Our topic for the first half term is 'How to Care for a pet' and the children will be using adjectives and conjunctions to make their writing more interesting.

After Half Term our topic will be 'Dinosaurs' and the children will have the opportunity to read and write a variety of non-fiction texts.
