Year 1





Our topic for this half term is Superheroes. We will be learning about real life heroes (such as the Police) as well as fictional superheroes. We are hoping to have a visit from the Police, fire fighter, nurse and a dentist. We started our topic with a dressing up day on Friday 7th September, children came to school dressed as their favourite Superhero and looked amazing.

We will be reading the following texts- Superhero ABC, Little Red Riding Hood, How to make a Spiderman Mask and Eliot the Midnight Superhero. Children will be learning to use capital and lowercase letters, write labels, follow and write instructions as well as writing their own superhero stories.

In Maths children will be reading and writing numbers in words as well as digits, finding 1 more and less of a given number and comparing numbers. Children will also be reading, writing and interpreting the signs + – and = .

We will be learning about The Human Body. Children will be able to name and label body parts and learn about the senses that are connected to the human body. We are hoping to have a visit from a dentist who will talk to us about keeping our teeth healthy.

Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure your child has PE kit in school. They need a t shirt, shorts and plimsolls. Hair needs to be tied up and earrings removed.

We will be sending homework home once a week. This may be a combination of English, Maths, Science or topic. It will be sent home on a Friday and should be returned to school the following Wednesday. Spellings will also be sent home on a Friday.
