Year 1 Projects
The half term started with us exploring our new classrooms, establishing expectations and routines and setting ourselves some goals.
Our focus question this term is 'Why is it marvellous to be me?'.
We will be doing lots learning linked to the year 1 outcomes to help us answer the question!
Watch this space for some updates on what we have been learning!
Year 1 English
In English we follow Pie Corbett's Talk 4 Writing and where possible, all the English work links with the Project focus.
In our first term we will be looking at stories by the same author with our focus being texts by Oliver Jeffers including 'Lost & Found', 'Up & Down' and 'The Way Back Home'. To help us learn the text we will act it out in groups, sequence the story, create story maps and investigate the characters and settings, ready for us to create our own stories using our own characters.
We have P.E twice a week on a Monday and a Tuesday. PE takes place indoors and outdoors.
Please ensure your child has their P.E kit in school to be able to take part.

They will have their kit sent home at the end of each half term.
This year our focus will be on reading and spellings.
Children are set spellings each week by their teacher. Please practice them ready for the spelling test the following week.
Please also ensure you read with your child for ten minutes every night. Don't forget to sign your child's reading record. This needs to be signed everyday so the children can move up the troll tree and be in with a chance of winning a special reading prize!
