Year 1 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Class 1
Autumn Term 2021
We hope that you have all had a wonderful Summer holiday and are excited to start Year One. Your new classroom, pegs and trays are ready and we can't wait to see you all! This year will be fun and full of adventure.
Monday 6th Sept will see the start of our 'Mission Week' where, as a whole school, we will celebrate 50 years of St Jerome's School. Each class will consider changes over time.
Our English will be based around a range of fantastic books. This term begins with 'Lost and Found' by Oliver Jeffers. It is a wonderful book of friendship and feelings and we are sure that the children will thoroughly enjoy this and all of the fun activities linked to it. The link texts for this story include 'Penguins' by Emily Bone and 'Zoo-ology' by Joelle Jolivet.
Our focus in Maths this half term will be counting to 20, place value in 2 digit numbers and simple addition and subtraction to 10. We will also look at 2D shape and symmetry along with ongoing practise of number formation.
Topic work begins with a Geography focus and will be looking at the question 'Why don't penguins need to fly?' This investigation focuses on habitats and how animals adapt to suit their environment. We will compare Antarctica with The Sahara desert, looking at how the weather affects things such as inhabitants and land use. This links well with our English text and we will create a 'polar' role play area.
We can’t wait to get started!
Children will all be given 2 reading books per week and would all benefit from reading every night. Little and often is best! Homework will be sent out on Fridays to be handed in by the following Tuesday. We really appreciate your support in this matter.
P.E. for Class 1 will be each Monday and Wednesday and the children should come into school wearing their P.E. kits on these days.
Please check the class page regularly for updates and photographs of what we have been getting up to in class.
Each child will soon receive their own login details for both Purple Mash and Active Learn. Both online learning platforms offer a great range of learning activities that children enjoy in school.
Remember if you want to contact us, please use the Class One email - firstname.lastname@example.org
