Learning in Year One this half term: In English we have started the half term by working on ‘Aaarrgghh Spider!’ by Lydia Monks. The children will use this story to do some Hot seating, acting and then use the ideas to write their own story. We will then be working on poetry and hear some weather poems and create our own. Finally, we will be doing some non-fiction writing related to our topic ‘Splendid Skies’. In Maths we are working on adding and subtracting within 10. We will then be moving on to positions using first, second etc. Then finally we will be ending on some shape work. In Science we are learning about the weather and seasonal change and will be carrying out an investigation making paper aeroplanes. In RE we are learning about ‘Incarnation’ and thinking about why Christmas matters to Christians. Our main topic this half term is titled, ‘Spendid Skies’ and focuses on looking at the weather and seasonal change. The children can be weather reporters and imagine what the weather is like at other times and in other countries. They will use maps through geography work and investigate and learn about aeroplanes.
