Year 1 – Mr Moore
Hello and welcome to Year 1 My name is Mr Moore and along with Miss Clegg we are the adults who will work with your children this year.
We have had a fantastic start to the year so far and I continue to see what else we can achieve in the next half term.
Our first topic Paw, Claws and Whiskers was fantastic and the children really enjoyed their learning and experiences.
Please take a look at some pictures below of our learning.
|We will be moving onto a new topic this half term which is called Moon Zoom. We will be focusing a lot on Space over the half term, linking our English and theme learning to this.|
|We will continue to work on our sketching skills in Art, producing some work around Space and the Planets.|
We will learn about significant individuals from the past, including Neil Armstrong and Tim Peake.
In Science, we will be learning about different materials used in everyday life and we will test their properties.
In this half term we will continue using our phonics to help support our spelling. We will be focusing on a range of different books linked to our space topic including; Toys in Space, Aliens love Underpants and Man on the Moon. We will also be looking at a range of different Non-Fiction texts about Space
We will be thinking carefully about our Year 1 punctuation expectations, including finger spaces, full stops and capital letters.
The children will be taking home spellings each week from the Year 1 Common Exception word list. It is important that they learn these words ready for their spelling tests and to use in their writing.
In Mathematics we are going to begin the year by focusing on place value, addition and subtraction and Measures.
We will have a big focus on recognising and writing our numbers to 20 as these are important number we will be using in the first half term.
We strongly advise that all children bring both their indoor and outdoor PE kit on a Monday morning and take it home on a Friday for washing.
Our PE days this term are Tuesday with Miss Goulter and Friday with Mr Moore.
It is important that the children have the correct kit that follows school uniform policy.
Indoor PE – Black Shorts, Plain White Top, Plain Pumps
Outdoor PE – Plain Tracksuit bottoms/joggers, Plain Top, Plain joacket/Hoody/Jumper, Trainers
Please make sure that all the children’s PE kits are clearly labelled and are in a labelled bag.
We recommend that all children have a water bottle in school every day, so that they can keep hydrated throughout the day. We have a designated area in the classroom where we keep our water bottles and can fill them up at the water fountain in our shared area. You can purchase a school water bottle from the office or use an alternative bottle. It would be really useful if you can make sure that your child's full name is on the bottle, in case we have more than one of the same bottle.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our class web page. We hope you have found the information above useful and continue to visit our page as it is updated throughout the coming year.
If you have any further questions or concerns about your child beginning their journey in Year 1 please do not hesitate to come and see myself or Miss Clegg.
