Term 1 Learning
Hello and welcome to the Year One page. We are so excited for you to join us on our journey.
Our topic this term is 'Explorers'. I wonder whether you can come up with any ideas on what you think we might be looking at?
Our English learning this term will be focused around the book 'Rainbow Fish' by Marcus Pfister.
We will be using this book as a stimulus when writing our own stories. We will be focusing on using capital letters at the beginning of a sentence and for a name, full stops at the end of a sentence, spaces between words so it can be read back and becoming more independent in our writing. We will also be focusing on applying our phase 3 sounds and common exception words, we are also focusing on our presentation and handwriting, always trying to write on the line. We are happy if the children write in print and not cursive - do what is natural to them.
Reading and Phonics
This term in Phonics we will be focusing on recapping our phase 3 sounds that we learnt in Reception so we can fill any gaps. We will be applying these in our reading and also including comprehension questions to make sure we are understanding what we are reading fully. Children will have a reading book matched to their phonics ability for you to read at home. They will also have a word box which links to the phonic sounds they need to practice. Please engage in the whole school reading challenge. We expect every child to read at home at least 5 times a week.
In Maths we will be learning:
- To recognise, count, order and write numbers 0-10 with no reversals.
- To find one more and one less than any number 1-10.
- To understand addition and subtract as combining 2 sets of objects and write addition/subtraction sentences.

How can you help at home?
- Listen to your child read 5x a week. Discuss the story with them and make sure you write in their reading record every time they read so that it can count towards our Reading Bug challenge!
- Practise your child's maths planets with them. There is the overview below and we can let you know what level they are on.
