Hello and welcome to the Autumn term in year 1! In our brand new classroom this year you will find Miss Campbell, Mrs Houghton, Miss Jones and 24 fabulous children.
This term our topics are There’s No Place Like Home and Changes within living memory. The children will be finding out about the area they live in, the area of the school and an alternative area in Wigan, where the childre will hopefully be going on a trip to Haigh Hall. Also, they will be looking at how they have changed since they were born and looking at objects from the past and present.
In English this term we will be looking at The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and a variety of Traditional Tales. We will learn how we can improve our writing by combining words to make interesting sentences. We will also be working hard to improve our handwriting and learn to use lots of new spellings.
In Maths we will be doing work on Place Value, addition, subtraction, measuring and shapes, Reading and writing calculations with + and -, solving different problems with + and – and naming and recognising 2D shapes. Phew!
In our Science lessons this term our focus will be on Humans- all about the body and staying healthy ☺.
Music lessons will be fun as we will be singing and enjoying lots of different songs.
Our PE days are Monday and Tuesday and full PE kits are needed on those days.
It will be a very busy term but lots of fun! Special events include an assembly in Church, a visitng theatre company and a spooky disco!
If you have any questons at all, please see me or another member of the staff before or after school or arrange an alternative time at the school office if this is not convenient.
