What’s happening in Year One this term ?


In English we are starting the year with lots of different Project X books and then moving onto enjoying the work of Julia Donaldson. After that we will be reading Goldilocks and Jack and the Beanstalk followed by the Christmas story. We will be doing lots of speaking, listening, writing and drama linked to these books.

In Mathematics we are learning about numbers up to 20 including odd and even,  addition, subtraction , inverse operations and shape and space.

In Science topics we are learning about our senses and also exploring and naming the different trees in our school grounds.

Our Geography topic starts with us all having a walk round Newhall visiting different places like the park and Sainsburys. Linked to this we will be doing lots of map making  and learning more about road safety.

We have been invited to visit the local allotments as part of our D and T and Science topics to learn more about healthy eating and where our food comes from.

In Computing we have been developing our word processing skills and programming Beebot to move. We are also learning more about e-safety.

Mr. Holland continues to work with us in PE lessons. Firstly we have been dong games with him, moving onto gymnastics after half term.

In RE we have been learning all about Harvest time and singing different harvest songs for our Harvest Festival. We will then be moving onto the Christmas story.
