Year 1

Hello and welcome to Year One!

I hope you have had a fantastic summer and are refreshed and ready to start the new year. This is my first term at Little Leigh and I am extremely excited to work with the children, the parents and the team.

A little bit about me. I have been teaching for a number of years and have experience throughout the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1. I enjoy reading, singing, horse riding and walking my two dogs.

This page has information about our current topic, PE lessons, reading and homework.

Please do always feel free to come in and speak to me if you have any concerns or questions about anything.

The door is always open.

Our new topic for Autumn term...

In a land far away...

This term we are going to be learning about traditional tales, fairy tales and nonfiction texts including castles, forests and kings and queens.

In English we will begin by reading and writing fairy tales. We will be looking at a variety of books from the 3 little pigs to Goldilocks. We will learn all about autumn and think about exploring the world with our senses. We will study poems and music to develop understanding of feelings and weather patterns. We will create story maps and look at adjectives to enhance our writing. Our presentation focus will be embedding finger spaces, full stops and capital letters in the right places.  

In maths, children will be working on place value, addition, subtraction, 2D shape, 3D shape, Position, Direction and Movement.

In Science, children will be learning how to identify different materials. We will be exploring their properties and classifying them. We will also look at the human skeleton.

In Geography, we will look at the UK and learn about the different countries and their capital cities. We will also make a weather diary and look at weather patterns. We will study a map of the local area and learn about a compass.

In History, children will be looking in great detail at kings and queens of the past and present.

In Art, children will explore colour, texture and pattern. They will use materials to create class/individual pictures. Children will also become illustrators of their own stories. We will also design and make houses and waterproof coats.

Children will also create their own coat of arms and study Kandinsky’s artwork ‘Circles’

In Music, children will listen to Four Seasons by Vivaldi and explore various instruments to create theme tunes to their stories and different characters. We will also learn different songs to help us with maths, storytelling, and phonics.  

What an exciting term!

Let's get started!

Homework

Children are given homework on Fridays and this alternates weekly between English and Maths.  We ask that all homework is returned by the following Thursday so that it can be marked in preparation for the following week. Children will also be given learning logs once a term and children have 2 weeks to complete these.

PE

PE lessons will take place on Tuesday afternoon and Friday morning. Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit with them throughout the week in case of any changes to the timetable. 

Reading

The teaching of reading in Year One is done through guided reading sessions. Each child will receive a guided read with a teacher during the week. You will be able to read about this in the reading diary, where a little comment will be left. It is during this session that the children will be encouraged to change their own reading books. They are, of course, welcome to do this at any point during the week. The other sessions during the week will focus on word building, phonics and comprehension tasks to build skills linked to the understanding of the text.
