Happy New Year! We hope you have had a lovely Christmas!
This term our Literacy theme is based around the story 'Mungo and the Picture Book Pirates'. We shall be writing our own version of the story, writing lots of character descriptions and writing a letter. In Science we shall be investigating 'Animals' and exploring our senses. In Maths we will be focusing on 2D and 3D shapes and number bonds and addition and subtraction to 20. In Geography we will continue to look at the different seasons, with a focus on 'Winter'. We shall also be looking at the four countries that make up the UK and the features of each one of these.
Homework this term will focus on 'Pseudo Words' (nonsense words) in preparation for our Year 1 Phonics Screen that will take place after the May (Whit) holiday.
In Year 1 we have a bear called Albert who likes to go on adventures. Albert will be sent home on a Friday to spend the weekend with one of our children and their family. Please encourage your child to draw a picture of Albert and write a sentence about what he has been up to so that this can be shared with the class on Monday.
