Dear Parents,

English

Please continue to support your child with their reading at home. Children need to have their reading diary signed every time they read with you at home so that they can collect ticks and work towards a prize. Please also use Reading Eggs to help your child with their phonics.

As part of our learning about Cinderella, we will be visiting Aston Hall early this half term. We will also be reading stories written by Jill Murphy, including Peace at Last. Children will continue to use phonics to write sentences and practise their handwriting daily.

Maths

This half term, we will be counting, reading, writing, identifying, doubling and halving and using comparative language with numbers up to 20. We’ll also be adding and subtracting up to 20 and solving simple word problems.

Furthermore, we’ll be learning to recognise common 2d and 3d shapes, describe position, direction and movement.

Science

Our topic this half term is materials and we will be investigating what objects are made from and the properties of different materials. Can you spot objects made from wood, plastic, metal or fabric in your home?

Topic

We are continuing to learn about our local environment and will be taking a walk around Moseley to look at the shops and the different houses. We will also be learning to weave and will be creating small pieces of art by weaving with wool and other materials.

RE

During these lessons we will be learning about the importance of listening to others. We will also be exploring what makes us happy. We will also be learning about the story of Christmas.

Regards.

Year 1 Recommended Reading List

Parents often ask us for suggested books for their children to read so we have put together a list of fiction and rhyme books which are recommended for children in Year 1. It is by no means an exhaustive list but represents a cross section of books suitable for your child. Please do take your child to borrow books from their local library. (They can take TEN books out at a time for free!) Please also encourage your child to read as often as possible as it will impact hugely on their writing ability and general learning.

Dear Parents,

English

We will be reading traditional tales including Goldilocks and the Three Bears and The Gingerbread Man. It would be helpful for your child to regularly visit the library and share books.

Maths

We will be continuing to improve our counting skills by practising to count forwards and backwards to 100. We will be practising to write our numbers as well as learning about addition and subtraction. Measurement will also be a focus this term. Please help your child to count to 100 and beyond. Why not count in 2s, 5s or 10s?

Science

This half term the children will be learning about ‘Ourselves’. They will be naming various parts of the body and learning about the senses (touch, taste, smell, hearing and sight).

RE

We will be learning about our own identities, listening to each other’s views and sharing.

Topic

This half term we will be learning about ‘Myself and My Family’. Please talk to your children about family members and their ages.

Computing

The children will be creating an eBook.

PE

Children will be experiencing a variety of multi-skills activities which involve outdoor games. Your child will also be learning about folk dancing. It is important that your child has their PE kit in school every day.
