Welcome to Year One!
Teacher - Miss Maw
Teaching Assistant- Mrs Jones
This half term our Topic is 'Once Upon A Time'
Our first Topic in Year One is based around the love of listening to and telling stories. Throughout the topic the children will be exposed to a range of traditional stories, including the well loved 'Gingerbread Man' and 'Jack and The Beanstalk. Through these texts the children will learn about traditional characters and the history of castles. In Art the children will design their own coats of arms showing their favourite colours and patterns. In Science we will be growing beans and thinking about what we would do if we found magic beans in our classroom? What would we wish for? What would we buy? We are looking forward to setting the children the challenge of building a bridge to get the gingerbread man across the river so he doesn't get eaten by the fox! In Design technology the children will plan a moving story scene based on a favourite story. To finish our Topic we will be holding a Year 1 and 2 kings and queens ball!
Week beginning -17th September 2018
Last week we started to learn about the story 'The Gingerbread Man'.We are going to be looking closely at the character of the gingerbread man.
This week we will be counting forwards and backwards, finding the number 1 more and 1 less and being number detectives to look at how numbers are made up of tens and ones.
