Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

Miss Bush is the class teacher and Mrs Smith is the teaching assistant. On this page, you will find information about Class 1 news, pictures of things that we've done and more.

Talk For Writing

As a Talk 4 Writing school, we place emphasis on children learning to orally retell different types of texts using story maps and actions. Throughout the year, children will learn approximately 9-12 model texts. We ask all parents to support children with learning these texts at home orally, so that children can use them to create their own versions.

 

The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year 1. The table will be updated and added to throughout the year. Please download the texts and story maps and practise retelling them.  Aim to retell the texts with actions and expression!

Autumn 1:

 

Topic: Up Our Street!

This term, we are learning all about Sway. We will locate key features of our school and village on a map and create a local area album to share what our village is like to live in. For our Brilliant Beginning, we will become meteorologists! We will create equipment for our own weather stations to measure rainfall and wind direction. We will use these throughout the year to observe how the weather changes across the four seasons.

Class Country

Our class country is France. Over the year, we will find out what it is like to live in France, learn about famous French monuments and learn some French words and phrases.

Have you ever been on holiday to France? Can you speak any French?
