Autumn 1
Children have had a great first half term in year 1.  They have settled in well and their behaviour has been fantastic.  They have worked extremely hard and have already completed lots of work and have shown great progress in a range of subjects.  Here are some of the things the children have been learning about.  

English

 

This half term we have learnt about recounts and wrote one about our walk around the school.  We then learnt the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and then changed the characters and settings to create our own traditional tale.  Ask your child if they can tell you their story.

Maths

 

In our first half term we have elarnt about numbers to ten.  We ordered numbers, compared numbers and learnt how to write them in numerals and words.  We then learnt about number bonds up to 10.  Finally we used our number bonds to make addition equations and number stories.

History

 

This half term we have learnt about five local heroes.  We learnt about the Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington, footballer Michael Doyle, Olympic runner Darren Campbell, artist L.S Lowry and suffragette Emiline Pankhurst.  We used documents and Artifacts to find out more about our Heroes.  As part of the topic we had a great day at the National Football Museum and then we even made our own Museum in school which year 2 came to visit.

Children have been learning how to find the pulse in songs.  They have used their bodies and instruments to play along to different songs.  They have also started to read simple notation and play a simple pattern with different instruments.  One of the songs children have enjoyed is Shotgun- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_B3qkp4nO4 ask your child if they can tap the pulse while listening to the song.
