Year 1

Welcome to Year 1


Teacher:                        Mrs Norris


Teaching Assistant:       Mrs Griffiths



This Term:

This term we will be investigating the past. We will be  finding out about dinosaurs, going on a fossil hunt and and creating our own dinosaurs models out of clay. We will also be using papier mache to make dinosaur eggs. Our work on dinosaurs links with our science work which is focussed on animals and habitats. To support this we hope to visit Twycross Zoo and see the animals close up.

In literacy, we are using The Book of Butterflies and The Bridge to support our writing - sentence structure, description and both fiction (story writing) and non fiction ( recounts and instruction writing.) We will continue with our phonics work every day using the song of sounds, introducing real and nonsense words to prepare the children for their phonics screening in the summer. Please read with and to your child every day to support their own blending and decoding skills and develop their love of reading.  

Our maths work is based on White Rose and will cover addition and subtraction, shape and measurement.

As you know it will be Mrs Norris in the morning and Miss Williams in the afternoon.
