Hello, I'm Miss Wills the Year 1 teacher. Welcome to our class page!

Term 1

The children have settled back in brilliantly and have adapted to our new systems quickly. We are using more of the outdoor space and the extra room to provide children with more opportunities to learn for themselves.

In literacy, we are concentrating on our phonics and writing sentences with capital letters and full stops. Can we read it back? Does it make sense? Supporting your children at home by listening to them read with really help their learning. We are having a big push on presentation to help the children be able to read their work back and to make it as neat as possible.

In maths, we are looking at number this term. We want the children to have a really good understanding of numbers and to know all of their number bonds. Practising number facts at home will build your child's knowledge and confidence.

In science, we are learning about animals, including humans. It is a great subject to learn about and I'm looking forward to learning all sorts of interesting facts about animals.


Term 2

In maths we are looking at numbers bonds to 10 and also adding and subtracting single digit numbers. 
In literacy we are reading the story of Little Red Riding Hood. We will be writing character descriptions using adjectives. We will also be having a go at sequencing and retelling the story.
In enquiry, we are looking at communication through time. We will look at the improvements of technology over time and how this helps us in everyday life.
