WELCOME TO THE GIRAFFES WITH MRS YORKE AND MRS SHEPHARD !
What’s happening in Year One this term ?
Our Geography topic starts with us all having a walk round Newhall visiting different places like the park and Sainsbury’s. After that we will be talking about the features we have seen and learning more about road safety. On 11th November we will all be visiting the war memorial in Newhall Park to lay poppy crosses.
In English we are starting the term by describing fireworks and then using these adjectives to write sentences describing fireworks. 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 starting with 2D and 3D shape and then learning more about numbers up to 10, addition and subtraction and doing lots of problem solving and reasoning activities.
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.
