Welcome to Year 1, this year finds us starting the National Curriculum.
Suddenly we are very busy with Literacy, Numeracy, Science, Computing, History, Geography, Art, D&T, Music, RE and PE.
We follow the letters and sounds approach for phonics and use Oxford Reading Tree Scheme for Reading.
Please speak to your child’s class teacher if you would like more information about the curriculum.
This week in Rabbit class, the children followed simple instructions to make ‘Terrible Tusks’ from the book ‘Gruffalo Crumble’. They then worked hard to write their own instructions using bossy verbs such as cut, chop, mix and eat.
This week in computing the children have been learning about technology. We have been talking about the main parts of a desktop or laptop computer. They practiced logging on to a computer and applied their knowledge of the different parts of a computer, to complete a mouse-based task.
In history the children have been learning about old toys. They chose an old toy to write about and had to describe it using key vocabulary.
