Our Topic this half term is...

What's going on in Year 1?

How many continents are there? Can you name them?                                                          How many Oceans are there? Can you name them?                                                   


In English, we will focus on our Talk4Writing text ’The Snail and the Whale’. We will look at creating a non-chronological report about Whales and innovate this to create a fact file for our own sea creature. During SPaG we will focus on adding s and –es to words as well as using the –ing suffix in our writing. We will focus on writing with purpose and WOW vocab, when writing we will focus on using our Fred Fingers to Fred Talk the words we need to write.


This half term, we will focus on Addition and Subtraction to 50 as well as reviewing previous units taught during home schooling as well as moving onto the following objectives:

¨ Counting forwards and backwards to 50

¨ Counting by making 10s

¨ Tens and ones of numbers to 50

¨ Representing numbers (to 50)

¨ One more and one less

¨ Comparing objects and numbers within 50

¨ Skip counting in 2s and 5s

How you can help your child at home? Daily counting practice (forwards and backwards), skip counting in ten and two and working on number bonds to 5 and 10.
