Autumn Term One

Welcome to the start of a new term at school! The children will be getting focusing on the rules and routines of Year One and getting settling in. We will be reading The Sea Saw by Tom Percival. We will be enjoying exploring the seaside and finding out about the adventures of the teddy bear. We will be trying to understand that nouns are the names of things and we will be learning a song to help us remember this.
As writers, we will be trying to write in simple sentences, using capital letters and full stops. As a challenge, we will be using and to add more information to our sentences.
As mathematicians, we will be 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 will be ‘material magpies’. We will be looking at what objects are made from and which materials are suitable for different purposes, depending on their properties. We will be investigating how some materials change over time and recording this.
As historians, we will look at London of the present day and the past. We will travel back in time to the Victorian era and find out about The Great Exhibition. We will get dress up and have a day in the life of a Victorian. 
As geographers, we will look at our own homes and the place we live, including the town of Lowestoft.
Reading continues to be a really important part of Year One. Your child will get a chance to choose books from our Reading Robin scheme, to continue to promote a love of reading.  Phonics can have a big impact of reading, so we will begin by revising phase 3 sounds.
