Year 1 – Tigers

Latest Updates

Weekly Information

In English we will be learning all about how to write letters. We will start by instigating the features of a letter. We will then have a go at writing a letters ourselves to Santa. Alongside this, we will be learning how to add the suffix ‘ed’ to the end of verbs and finding out how this changes the meaning of the verb.

In Maths we will learning that a half comprises of two equal parts. We will be finding halves of objects, quantities and numbers by sharing and splitting them into two equal groups. We will also be recapping on our learning of 2D and 3D shape as well as looking at repeating patterns.

General Information

It has been a pleasure to welcome the children back after half term and they have shown a really positive attitude towards their learning so far. This half term we will be exploring ‘The Wonderful World of Winnie’, which is based around the series of stories by Valerie Thomas and Korky Paul. The children were extremely excited as on arrival back to school they were greeted by a witches hat, cauldron and broom  that had been mysteriously left in the classroom! Winnie has been really kind and has left us lots of her stories, which will provide a stimulus for lots of writing opportunities this half term. In Maths we will be consolidating our knowledge of place value with numbers up to 30 and comparing and ordering them. We will be focusing on solving addition and subtraction problems and exploring new strategies to help us.

This half term in topic we will be celebrating each others similarities and differences, recognising we are all unique in our own way. A special highlight of this half term will be our Christmas production ‘The Sleepy Shepherd’ which we can’t wait for you to come and see, more details will follow shortly.

Thank you for your continued support, please don’t hesitate to ask us any questions you may have about this half terms learning.

Many thanks
