Year 1 Curriculum

Welcome to Class 1P

At the beginning of this term we will be going on our school trip to Far Ings Nature reserve in Barton upon Humber. We will be basing a lot of our work this term on the activities the children will be carrying out on the trip e.g: pond life, minibeast hunt and wildlife conservation.

In Literacy this term, we will be enjoying the book ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar' by Eric Carl and 'Super worm' by Julia Donaldson. We will also be enjoying lots of non-fiction books relating to minibeasts/life cycles and pond life. We will be going into more detail with punctuation eg: question marks, speech marks and exclamation marks. We will also be including adjectives and nouns to our writing and encouraging the children to read for enjoyment.

We will be continuing with Read, Write, Inc sessions assisting the children with their phonic knowledge and preparing them for their Phonics screening test in June.

In numeracy, we will be concentrating on knowing and using numbers to 100.  We will be using Numicon to assist this in games and activities.  We will be especially looking at 2,5 and 10 times tables and missing number sentences. We will also be learning about measuring and exploring money related problems.

In RE we will be starting our new topic on Holidays and Holydays and reflecting on the importance of Pentecost and the Easter story.
