WELCOME TO THE MONKEYS WITH MRS DICKEN.
What’s happening in Year One this term ?
In English we are starting the term with fireworks poems and making our own rhymes using rhyming words. We are then going to enjoy stories about Goldilocks and Jack and the Beanstalk followed by the Christmas story. We will be doing lots of speaking, listening, reading, writing and drama linked to these books and stories.
In Mathematics we are learning more about numbers up to 10, addition and subtraction and doing lots of problem solving and reasoning activities.
Our Geography topic starts with us all having a walk round Newhall visiting different places including the War Memorial on Newhall Park. After that we will be doing lots of map making linked to this and learning more about road safety.
In Science we are looking at seasonal changes. We will be remembering when our birthday is and which season it is in.
In Computing we will be developing our word processing skills and learning more about e-safety.
Mr. Holland continues to work with us in PE lessons moving onto gymnastics this term.
In RE we will be comparing different festivals including Christmas.
