Happy New Year to Year 1!
Mapping Skills and Materials
Our Science theme for this term is ‘Marvellous Materials.’ We will be grouping and classifying a range of materials and identifying what they can be used for linked to their properties.
The children will be developing their map skills looking at their surrounding area from an aerial perspective. They will produce simple maps and plans, use a key and a range of OS symbols.
In ICT we will be using Purple Mash to group and classify shapes, fruit and other objects according to criteria.
In RE, we will be looking at how different religions welcome babies into the world.
In PE, we will be developing our skills in net and wall activities and striking and fielding games. We will also complete the mile a day.
Please try and write comments in your child's organisers about the books they have read.
Year 1 children will be receiving spellings and also reading books. Your child should be learning their spellings daily and reading daily.
