Welcome to Lemur Class
Autumn Term 2020
Welcome back Year 1! We are so pleased to have you all back in school again and can't wait to start delving in to our exciting new learning.
As an introduction to year 1 we will be reading stories linked to our class animals. As both of these texts are set in Africa, we will be creating some pieces of art work inspired by African prints and patterns.
We will continue our theme of Africa throughout the term reading 2 different texts. These texts will provide children with the opportunity to explore a range of different writing styles and they will expose them to a variety of rich language. This term we will be focusing on children’s accuracy when using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces along with encouraging them to use their phonic sounds within their writing.
In Maths we will be recapping on what the children have learnt in reception and then moving on to making sure we are secure with all our numbers to 50, understanding the value of the numbers and what this means. We will use this knowledge to solve simple addition and subtraction calculations with the support of practical manipulatives. We shall also be looking at shape, describing and comparing the common properties of simple 2D and 3D shapes.
For more information on the other subjects your child will be learning this term please see the curriculum newsletter and curriculum map below.
