Language, Literacy and Communication            

In Year 1 this term, pupils will be focusing on their phonics, ensuring they have a solid understanding of their sounds, including recognising and writing them. Phonics lessons will take place twice a week. This will be Phase 2 and Phase 3 sounds.

Pupils will be working hard to develop their oracy skills and will complete regular activities, where they have opportunities to work in groups to share their ideas with their peers. Pupils will be supported with their reading and comprehension skills through daily GGR sessions.


Mathematics & Numeracy

In Maths & Numeracy pupils will focus on number and place value. They will use their number skills to work out addition and subtraction sums. Pupils will learn how to count in 2s, 5s and 10s.

Pupils will be partitioning numbers into 10s and 1s and solving written number stories.
Pupils will be learning about shape, space and measure, where the knowledge and skills learnt will be used throughout the inquiry. 




Inquiry Based Learning

This term our inquiry is called ‘Our Community.’ Pupils will explore their own community, looking at the past and present and exploring how it has changed over time. They will identify similarities/ differences and investigate how human actions and beliefs shape communities as well as identifying places within their community. Pupils will have the opportunity to go on a trip to St Fagans Museum, where they can explore and understand how people used to live many years ago. The knowledge that the pupils gain from this trip will be used to feed into their inquiry in the next few weeks.
At the end of the inquiry, pupils will create a family tree, showing where their family members have come from and the jobs they do. They will then compare this with their peers.





Important days:

Google Classroom:
