Year 1

Welcome to Year 1


17th January


In English we are beginning to work on our comprehension skills and have begun with some listening comprehensions. We will carry on with this next week and then try our first reading comprehension!

We have been working on making sure our writing makes sense so we can read it back to an adult. Any practise at home on capitals, full stops, finger spaces and handwriting would be useful.


In Maths we have begun using number up to twenty, recording in numerals and words. We are starting to use Base 10 equipment and have been practising using tens and ones when we are ordering numbers. Any practise writing numbers to twenty and talking about how many tens and ones in a number would be great.


In Topic we have made our own passports and looked at map, atlas' and globes to find the UK. We visited London with Barnaby Bear(!) and recognised lots of landmarks. We also learnt about our Union Jack flag and the four countries that belong to the UK. We travelled to Scotland and learnt about The Loch Ness Monster! Next week we are going to find out more about Scotland and taste some Scottish food.
