Hello and welcome to the spring term in year 1! Below is some information about our learning this term.
“Kings and Queens”
In the first half term, we will be focusing on numbers to 50. We will look at comparing and ordering numbers before moving on to addition and subtraction.
Over this term, we will be looking at a variety of texts to inspire the children’s writing. We will start by looking at fairy tales and writing to entertain. Our text for this unit will be The Princess and the Pea. After this, we will look at instructions with the book Beegu by Alexis Deacon.
In science, we will be learning about materials. There will be lots of opportunities to investigate suitable materials for various different uses and we will be comparing, grouping and thinking about fair testing.
History this term will look at different kings and queens. We will be finding out what makes a good monarch and looking at King John, Richard III, Charles I, Elizabeth I, Charles III and Elizabeth II.
This term we will be starting off the children’s learning by getting used to logging on to a computer – improving the children’s typing skills. We will use online tools such as sketchpad to develop our understanding.
In Art we will be developing our drawing skills and we look forward to exploring various different lines.
Our value this term is courage. We will also be looking at adults in and out of school in our lessons.
