Welcome to Bumblebee Class with Miss Edwards and Miss Mousdell. We have had a very busy term so far and have been working incredibly hard adapting to the new routines and expectations of Year 1 and are settling well into our new class. The continuous provision, has helped to make this transition a little smoother. Our aim is to work hard and take pride in our achievements and also celebrate the achievements of others through support and respect. We are developing our collaboration skills and valuing the importance of learning together.
In English this term we will be looking at Fiction through story writing, using our key text ‘Kipper’s Toybox’. During this unit we will be writing character descriptions and will unpick the different elements of a story which will then help us create our own. We will also be learning about recounts, and non-chronological reports.
In Maths we are focusing on Place Value, checking that our counting skills are accurate, ordering numbers and identifying one more and one less than a number. We will then be moving on to addition and subtraction.
Our Topic this term is ‘TOYS’. During this topic we will be exploring the history of toys and making comparisons between toys from the past and today. We will be talking about our favourite toys and discussing how they work. We will also be investigating the different materials used to make toys and their properties.
