In the second half of the Autumn Term, we will be learning about different types of toys from the past. We have got an exciting box of artefacts to look at as part of our History work and we will be comparing these with our present day toys. In English, we will be learning about some toys that get themselves lost in a museum. We will also be reading lots of non fiction books on toys. This half term we will also be continuing with our Science work on materials and we will be planning and carrying out lots of different tests, looking at the properties of materials. Alongside all of this work, we will be spending a week after the half term holiday looking at Guy Fawkes and finding out all about this famous person, before ending the half term with lots of Christmas fun!
Autumn Term (First Half)
Welcome to Year 1. We have lots of exciting things planned for this half term. Our first topic is:
All About Me
We will be learning about where we live, developing our map work skills and our knowledge of the United Kingdom. We will also be learning about the importance of rules, routines, e-safety and how we are unique. Alongside this, we will also be learning about the properties of different materials and which ones are the best for certain objects eg for windows in houses. We will be continuing to work on our Maths skills by doing lots of counting, adding and subtracting.
We would just like to take this opportunity to thank all of our Year 1 children for all of their hard work, amazing resilience and boundless energy this year. We have loved teaching you all. We wish everyone a safe and hopefully very relaxing Summer holiday.
Below are some activities that you might want to have a go at - enjoy!!!
