Class 6 Year 1 2018 - 2019

Miss Bond

Welcome to our Class 6 Home page! smiley

We hope that you have all had a happy and restful half term week. The children have all settled really well into the daily routines of year 1 and we are looking forward to this busy new half term together. 

In English we will be reading some stories with familiar settings. We will explore the story 'Whatever next' as part of our Talk 4 writing unit. We will try to expand our sentences by using 'and' and 'but' in them. We will check our writing for capital letters and punctuation marks. We will continue to learn to write using the cursive style.

In Maths we will learn to count to twenty, forwards and backwards, beginning with 0 or 1, or from any given number. We will count, read and write numbers to 20 in both numerals and words. Given a number, the children will  identify one more or one less. They will identify and represent numbers using objects and pictorial representations including the number line, and use the language of: equal to, more than, less than (fewer), most, least. They will represent and use number bonds and related subtraction facts within 10. We will read, write and interpret mathematical statements involving addition (+), subtraction (-) and equals (=) signs. We will learn 2d and 3d shape names.

Our  RE topic is: Mary, Mother of God – What makes someone special?  We learn about the events leading up to the Birth of Jesus, including the Annunciation and the Visitation. We find out  why Mary was chosen to be the mother of Jesus. We retell the Christmas story and learn how the Good News of Jesus’s birth was spread. 

Our topic work continues with ‘My World and I’ and throughout this half term we will have a greater focus on History. We learn about the poppy and why it is used to signify Remembrance day. We will find out about famous people from around our locality and write fact files about them. We will continue to learn to play the recorder. Remember to keep practising at home!

The children will have access to a wide range of colour banded books which they can choose and change within the classroom when they need a new book. We will read at least once each week as part of a guided reading session. During this time we will practise key skills to help develop fluency and a note will be made in their diary. Please make sure that your child is reading every day and that any reading completed at home is recorded in their reading diaries. 

PE lessons will be on a Tuesday afternoon, please make sure your child has a PE kit (indoor and outdoor) in school. Homework will be given out in Homework books on a Friday and to be returned by Wednesday.

Class 6s' updated curriculum map is available on our class page below, which will give further information on all of the above.

I am looking forward to this wonderful next half term in year 1 and all the excting times ahead.

Many thanks for all your support.

Miss Bond and Mrs Owen
