Year 1 2020 - 2021

Mrs Chorlton


Welcome to Year One! 

This Term our topic is Beside the Seaside.

We will explore the geography of our school and grounds, and our local area. We will learn about maps, globes, atlas’ and aerial photographs. We will move on to comparing the geography of Murdishaw to the seaside and then we’ll learn a little about the history of seaside resorts.

In Maths are going to be learning all about numbers to 20 then to 40 and using this knowledge to solve addition and subtraction problems. We will also be exploring hight, length, volume, capacity, mass and much more. 

This term we start in our phonics groups to carry on with our Read Write Inc program. We will also be doing lots of reading and 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 Thursdays, please can we have PE kit in every week. Thank You smiley

We are also very lucky to have Drama and Music lessons with our specialists every Wednesday.

And finally homework is given out every Friday and is due back to school the following Thursday.
