This half term
We are currently learning about materials and recycling.
In English we are reading 10 Things I Can Do To Help My World. We have written letters and poems about helping to look after the world.
We are now trying to include more prefixes (un-) and suffixes (-ing, -er, -est, -s/es, -ed) in our writing. Can you make a list of words that fit with these?
In Maths we are recapping lots of different topics. Can you try and use your skills at home? You could measure the length of something, time yourself to do an activity, or weigh some ingredients to bake a cake!
Please remember to keep reading!
Welcome to Year One!

Our topic this term was Life on Earth. In the first half term we learned all about dinosaurs and the weather in our topic and Science lessons. In English, we spent a lot of time on The Robot and The Bluebird, a book we really enjoyed reading and talking about! We also read and wrote poems from Poems to Perform, and looked at the poetry in Tyrannosaurus Drip.
In the second half term, we learned all about the animal kingdom through topic, Science and English lessons!
Exciting experiences this term have included going to Twycross Zoo and dressing up as our favourite book characters!
Our topic was All About Me. We learned about the human body and how to stay fit and healthy. In English, we read the books Handa's Surprise, Funny Bones and Chicken Licken. In Maths, we spent a lot of time learning about numbers, addition, and subtraction. We also began to look at measurement and money. See our curriculum overview for more information!
We went on a walk to the local Greengrocers to buy fruit as part of our learning about healthy eating. When we returned to school we chopped and blended the fruit to make yummy fruit smoothies.
