Welcome to Year 1
Our year 1 classes are 1 Germany and 1 Italy.
This term in Maths, Year 1 will be introduced to some fundamental maths concepts and will start to develop their key maths skills. They will be looking at place value and numbers to 10 and will be becoming more confident when identifying and representing numbers.
This year we will also be doing arithmetic in the form of rainbow maths once a week. Rainbow maths focusses on counting, basic number bonds and times tables and each level builds on the previous skill.
Our main topic for foundation this term is 'AFRICA'. We will be covering a range of foundation subjects including: Geography where we will be learning about place knowledge, particularly the similarities and differences between the UK and Africa.
Science Where we will conduct scientific investigations relating to plants, both here and abroad.
Art and DT where we will be developing ideas and taking inspiration from others to create artistic portraits.
RE where we will be looking at Gods creation, through Christianity and discussing the responsibilities we all have to care for our world.
