WELCOME TO THE MONKEYS WITH MRS DICKEN.
What’s happening in Year One this term ?
In English we are starting the year with lots of different books by Julia Donaldson including one of our favourites…Stick Man and a new book called Cave Baby. We will be dong lots of speaking, listening, writing and drama linked to these books.
In Mathematics we are learning about place value with numbers up to 10. Then we will do some addition and subtraction with these numbers.
In Science the topics we are learning about include 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. After that we will be doing lots of map making linked to this and learning more about road safety.
We have been invited to visit the local allotments as part of our D and T topic 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. To start with we will be doing games with him
In RE will be learning all about Harvest time and singing different harvest songs for our Harvest Festival.
