Year 1: Aqua and Sapphire

Year 1


In Year 1 this term our focus book will be ‘Traction Man’. It is a wonderful story about a toy named Traction Man who comes to life and goes on exciting adventures!


In English we will be learning to write in sentences. We will be using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces in our writing and using this to write our own captions. We will also begin to look at conjunctions through ‘and’; we’ll be exploring how it is used and how it affects our writing.


In Maths we will be learning about number and place value and addition. We will begin to consolidate our knowledge of numbers beyond 20, learning about the importance of place value and how to find one more and one less than a quantity. We will continue to use pictorial representations and a range of resources to support our learning.


In Science we will be working scientifically to identify, describe and classify materials. Year 1 will begin to identify the properties of various materials and we will use investigations to test those properties.


In Humanities we are looking at important events in History with a particular focus on the toys from the past.  We will look at the similarities and differences between the toys now and toys from the Victorian era as well as other points throughout history.


PE will be every Monday afternoon and pupils must wear the appropriate kit to school. We advise all aspects of uniform should be labelled with your child’s name and class.


We look forward to an outstanding Autumn term in Year 1.
