English

In Year 1, children learn to orally retell different types of texts using story maps and actions. 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. Please download the texts and story maps and practise retelling them. Aim to retell the texts with actions and expression!

The topic for Autumn One is called 'Our School and Village', which links our Science and Geography lessons together. We're going to go on a journey with Barnaby Bear to find him the perfect place to build his new home. The children will learn about the four seasons, the key features of our school and village and will discover the mini beasts that live on the school grounds. For the Brilliant Beginning, the children will build rain gauges which we will use to record the weather throughout the year. Rainfall, the sunset and temperature will be recorded each term on a class graph.

 

*Please bring in any plastic bottles that you have at home for the children to build their rain gauges.

 

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?
