Autumn Term 2019
We will start the year by settling the children into Year 1 and their new rules and routines. The children will have the opportunity to work as a team to create their own class rules and a display of our vision of 'be the Best You Can Be!'
In Maths, we will be focusing on place value, the formal written methods of addition and subtraction, the rapid recall of addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and 2D and 3D shapes. The children will engage in practical activities and have opportunities to extend their learning by applying these maths areas in a variety of contexts.
In our daily maths lesson, we will include opportunities to practise Maths facts. We will focus on different maths facts throughout the Autumn term; know language for chronological order, telling the time to o'clock and half past, counting forwards and backwards to 100, counting in multiples of twos, fives and tens.
We will also have a weekly 'Basic Skills' maths lesson to revisit and practise a variety of skills. We will focus on a number of different skills throughout the Autumn term: reading and writing numbers to 20 in numerals and words, place value, counting forwards and backwards to 100 and one more and one less.
During our Talk 4 Writing sessions, we will learn a variety of texts through pictorial representations and actions. During our poetry units, the children will learn 'bug chant' and 'butterfly inside'. The stories we will learn are a quest/journey story called 'Our Colourful Planet' and a defeating the monster story called 'Super Worm'. Our non-fiction units will focus on instructions and a non-chronological report. The children will have opportunities to immerse themselves in each text by starting with a fun activity, learning the pictorial representations and adding actions and pictures. This will follow with the children innovating the text to create their own versions. During these lessons, there will be opportunities to embed basic English skills such as handwriting, punctuation and spelling.
Phonics will be taught throughout Year 1 and we will use every opportunity to allow the children to apply the sounds we know into our writing.
Our theme this term is 'Donaldson's Delights'. We will be looking at a variety of Julia Donaldson stories and linking them to our whole school big idea of leadership. During these theme lessons, we will have the opportunity to express our creativity by completing activities such as creating paper dolls, butterfly painting, making a sock worm, making maps, creating masks, investing our own superhero and producing a Wanted poster.
Every Tuesday, the children will carousel around all three Year 1 classrooms. During this time, they will be taught Music, Spanish and ICT. In Music, we will be following our Charanga scheme to learn about rhythm and pulse and be playing instruments to a beat. In Spanish, the children will learn basic greetings, colours and numbers in a fun and practical way. In ICT, we will use the Ipads to create codes on Espresso. During PE, we will be playing a variety of fun games to support the children's social development. We will also be creating gymnastic routines that we will perform to our peers.
We look forward to our fun-filled term. If you would like to see our learning in action then please visit our Year 1 Blog at http://year1bcpa.edublogs.org/.
