Autumn term one – year one

Welcome to the start of a new term at school! The children are settling down and getting used to the rules and routines of year one. We are reading The Sea Saw by Tom Percival. We are enjoying exploring the sea side and finding out about the adventures of the teddy bear. We are trying to understand that nouns are the names of things and learning a song to help us remember. As writers we are trying to write in simple sentences, using capital letters and full stops. As a challenge we are using and to add more information to our sentences.
In maths we are learning to count accurately through doing practical activities. We are learning that numbers can be shown with practical equipment and by drawing symbols.
As scientists, we have been material magpies. We have been looking at what objects are made from and which materials are suitable for different purposes depending on their properties. We will be observing how some materials change over time and recording this.

As historians, we will look at London of the present and the past. We will travel back in time to the Victorian era and find out about the Great Exhibition. We will get dressed up and have a day in the life of a Victorian.

As geographers, we will find out about our own homes and the place we live.

Remember keep on reading!
