Welcome to the Spring Term in Y1!
This term we are going to be finding out about Rainforests across the world. In SMSC, we will be exploring friendship, how to get along and how to be a good friend to one another. In Art, we will be designing and creating marvellous masks inspired by rainforests. In Science, we will be exploring animals and classifying them based on their characteristics and diets. During our Computing sessions, we are going to be creating illustrations based on some of our current picture books. We will be completing this, as well as music, with Mr Watkins.
This term the children will be developing their knowledge of numbers to 20 and beyond. They will be learning to recognise, order and identify missing numbers in order to support their knowledge of place value. We will continue to develop the children's ability to understand addition, subtraction, division and multiplication using one and two digit numbers.
The children will be continuing with their daily phonics session in order to develop their knowledge and understanding of set 2 and set 3 sounds. They will be exploring RWI books in order to develop their early reading skills and develop their ability to answer literal and inference questions. They will be developing their understanding and ability to read real and alien words in order to prepare them for the Phonics Screening Test in June. During our whole class reading sessions, we will be exploring a range of high quality picture books to develop the children's super seven reading skills.
In writing, we will be using our topic of 'Rainforests' to develop our early writing skills and as the basis for our Creative Writing sessions. We will continue to develop the children's abilities to write short narratives! The children will also take part in grammar
sessions to develop their understanding of spelling, punctuation and grammar.
