Year One Curriculum
We are committed to make learning exciting, meaningful and memorable for our learners. With this as a focus we aim to provide quality and excellence through an exciting, stimulating environment providing an education which will develop social skills and encourage children to become active and responsible citizens within the school community and beyond.
Our topics are based around quality texts which aim to reflect the diversity in our school community.
We will teach phonics daily through a program called Little Wandle. There are videos on their website to support you and your child at home.
Every child will have the opportunity for 1-1 reading with a school adult across the week. They will then bring home their reading book so that they can read with you. Please make sure that you read for at least 5 minutes daily. Their reading book will be changed once per week. It is important that they become familiar with the book so please don’t worry if you feel that you are repeating the same book. It is also important that your children have a storytime at home where you read to them. We have a selection of books that the children can borrow.
We follow a programme called Big Maths and each Friday the children complete a ‘Learn Its Challenge’. I will send home their sheets so that you can see what they need to practise. Please use the Big Maths website at home. As well as this I would encourage you to play maths games at home. These can be traditional board games or online.
These are some useful websites with free resources.
Each half term we will set a homework grid. There are a variety of activities that you and your child can work on together to support their learning at school. There will be a certificate for children who have completed the highest number of activities from the grid.
I am looking forward to teaching your children. It is going to be a wonderful year. If you have any concerns or questions please email me and I will try to get back to you as quickly as possible.
Autumn Term 1
THIS IS ME
The children will learn about their identity – what makes them who they are. They will learn about parts of the human body and what they are for. We will explore the five senses and learn which parts of the body are associated with each sense.
They will draw self-portraits and learn about great artists such as Frida Khalo and Vincent Van Gogh.
We will make maps of the local area in geography and in history the children will make a personal timeline.
We will be learning how to say hello, goodbye, good morning, good afternoon and goodnight in Spanish.
