Year 1 2017 - 2018

Mrs Chorlton

Year 1 Teacher

Welcome to Year One! 

During the Spring term we will be very busy going into Outer Space; we will be looking at the life and achievements of Neil Armstrong, we will look at what a light source is and how shadows are made. 

We will read Oliver Jeffers story 'The Way Back Home' and write our own version of the story.   

 Image result for the way back home   watch the story:  

We will then come back down to earth and time travel through the ages to see how toys and music have changed across the decades. We will even experience a real life Victorian lesson! 

In maths our focus is on addition and subtraction to 20 and exploring hight and length.  We are all so learning to count in 2's, 5' and 10's and how these can help us in maths.


This term we will be in our phonics groups to carry on with our Read Write Inc program. We will also be doing lots of writing in class.

Please see our dedicated RWInc page that you can find through the English page and our new Learning to Read page . You will find useful information, links and clips on there to inspire and support reading at home with your child. 


PE is on a Mondays and Fridays, please can we have PE kit in every week. Thank You smiley

We are also very lucky to have a music lesson with our music specialist very Tuesday.

And finally homework is given out every Friday and is due back to school the following Thursday, children who regularly return their home will be rewarded...!!
