Year One

Year One will be taught by: Miss McDermott, Miss Nelson and Miss Fothergill.

This half term our topic is BEES!




We will be continuing to work hard on our phonics this half term ready for our phonics screening check at the beggining of next half term. We will all be recapping on all thoe sounds we need to know to help us read both real and nonsense words correctly. 

In literacy we will be focusing on books about bee's and looking at one text in particular to help build our story telling skills.

This text is called THE VERY GREEDY BEE. 

We will be using story mapping to retell the story and then using this story to tell our own stories about other greedy insects!

In maths we will be continuing to look at number skills and addition and subtraction and also some new skills such as measuring, looking at money and time and much more!

In science we will look at plants and habitats, looking closely at the habitats of minibeasts.

In geography and history we are going to look at our city. We will be looking at how it looks now and how it looked in the years gone by. 



P.E will be on a Thursday . Children will need a full P.E kit in school every day and this should include a white t-shirt, black shorts and pumps. 


Reading books and Homework:

Reading books will be changed on a weekly basis and we would appreciate if you could read with your child each night. Your children will recieve spelling on a friday to learn at home and will be tested in school the following friday. I would be grateful if you would assist by completing the record sheet each night on your child’s behalf for spellings, reading and times tables.



Key words - These are specific to your child and will be tested on a one to one basis every two weeks.      

Topic and key words - these are sent home every friday and tested the following friday. 



If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact myself, Miss Nelson or Miss Fothergill.


Thank you,

Miss McDermott
