Cityscapes and Landscapes

We are excited to be learning all about... BUILDINGS!!  The children have already enjoyed sharing their 'dream' houses and were fascinated by amazing buildings from around the world.  Thank you for all your support in creating such wonderful houses at home.






We will be focusing our writing based on a fantastic book called 'Roberto, the insect Architect'.  The children will have a chance to talk about their ideas for their 'dream' house and compare different places.  We will also be role playing characters to understand their characteristics and feelings and use these ideas to create a newspaper report.





We have Maths lessons everyday in Year 1.  The children are encouraged to use different resources available to help them solve various problems independently.  This term they will be focusing on knowing number bonds to 10 and to be able to add and subtract numbers with increasing accuracy using different resources.  The children will also be learning to count in 2s, 5s and 10s and focus on 2x, 5x and 10x tables.





In Year One we encourage the children to read everyday.  The children have the opportunity to change their reading book everyday.  We really value your comments, so please sign and comment whenever your child has read a book. 



The children will all take part in Gymnastics and Games each week so we would like children to keep their full kit in school at all times.  This should include shorts, t-shirts and plimsolls and jogging bottoms.

Please note that there is no swimming this term.  Swimming will resume in Term 6.



Please can all items of uniform be clearly named, this includes PE kit.  Children find it very hard to identify their own tie or jumper!  This is especially important now the weather is warmer and children are taking their jumpers off.




The children will be able to borrow a book from our school library each week.  Please could you ensure the book is well looked after and returned every week.

If you have any queries or would like further information, please do not hesitate to ask the Year 1 team.


Thank you.





The children will be receiving a piece of Maths activity and a 'Spelling Detectives' sheet each week.  They will receive on a Friday and the Home Learning must be returned by Wednesday.  Please note that we do not give spelling words each week.  Instead you will receive a list of tricky words at the start of each term.
