Year 1 – Tigers

Latest Updates

Weekly Information

During the first week back after half term we will be using the film of ‘Charlotte’s Web’ to describe some of the farm animals that we see. We will be thinking about adjectives and how we can use these to make our writing more interesting. Alongside this, we will be extending our sentences by using the word ‘and’.

In Maths we will be starting our learning on time by thinking carefully about intervals of times. We will be recapping on our learning of the days of the week and months of the year and solving problems based around these. Towards the end of the week we will be exploring clocks and using them to find the time for o’clock.

Our Phonics sounds for the week will be:

wh as in whale

ph as in phone

ew as in screw and few

oe as in toe

au as in sauce

ey as in monkey

General Information

We are looking forward to welcoming the children back after a well earnt half term break. We can’t wait to hear all of the wonderful stories about what they have been getting up to. It is going to be a jam packed half term starting our new topic ‘The Circle of Life’! We are really excited to be having an incubator with eggs ready to hatch in school and can’t wait to watch this process with the children. The children will be learning all about animals in Science and what they need to grow and live a healthy life.

In our writing we will be using the story of ‘Charlotte’s Web’ as inspiration. We will be choosing characters from the story and describing them using interesting adjectives and adventurous vocabulary. We are very excited that this half term that we will be heading to Farmer Palmers to learn all about farm animals and how they feed and grow. We hope to use this experience to explore non-fiction writing by making our own fact files about the farm animals we see.

In Maths we will be learning how to tell the time to the hour and half past the hour. We will also be comparing different measures such as intervals of time, length, weight and capacity. During the end of the half term we will be recapping on multiplication and division by applying what we have learnt in the previous half term.

Many thanks
