Long Term Plan 2017-2018

Term 1 Topic Plan For Parents

 

Term 1

What an exiting start to our Year 1 Journey! 

We have enjoyed finding out more about our class animals and amazing everyone with our fun facts.  We learnt all about Hiccup the Viking in English and let our imaginations run wild reading the book 'The Journey'.  In Maths we have been practising counting and forming our numbers correctly.  We have begun learning more about addition and using Numicon and Dienes to help us.  We have been busy exploring our new 'Let's Explore' areas - we now get to choose to go to the corridor, yard, playground or stay in our classrooms!  We have been busy building Viking ships and testing them in the water.  Previous to this, we tested a range of different materials to see how strong, bendy and waterproof they were.

We have lots more learning to come!

 

Term 2 Topic Plan For Parents

 

Term 2 

As the weather has turned colder Year 1 have started their new topic 'The Big Freeze!'  We began the term by looking at some of our favourite characters from the film Frozen and enjoyed describing their appearance and personality in our Writing.  The following week we were thinking about how exciting it would be if we had some snow this year... we used our magic to see if we could make it happen and to our surprise it worked!  We came up with some amazing adjectives to describe the snow during our 'snow machine' experience.  In Let's Explore we have been experimenting with ice cubes and discussing the journey it makes when it melts.  We designed outfits for colder climates and found out the most popular ice cream flavours in our class... yum yum!  In Maths we have been super whizzy, practising our addition and place value.  We have even been beginning to count in twos!  PE has been so much fun, learning new balances like the tree, aeroplane and the plank.  Lots more learning to come and our Christmas performances to look forward to!
