Our Topic this half term is...
What's going on in Year 1?
How many Traditional Tales can you name? Why have Traditional Tales changed slightly over the years?
This half term we are focusing our writing around the story The Gingerbread Man. We will create a story map to learn and innovate the story by changing aspects such as the characters and setting We will focus on retelling the story clearly using expression and WOW vocab, when writing we will focus on using our Fred Fingers to Fred Talk the words we need to write. As well as this, we will be writing instructions based on how to make Gingerbread Men and exploring other Traditional Tales stories such as The Three Billy Goats Gruff.
This half term, we will focus on reviewing previous units taught during home schooling as well as moving onto the following objectives:
¨ Counting forwards and backwards to 50
¨ Counting by making 10s
¨ Tens and ones of numbers to 50
¨ Representing numbers (to 50)
¨ One more and one less
¨ Comparing objects and numbers within 50
¨ Skip counting in 2s and 5s
How you can help your child at home? Daily counting practice (forwards and backwards), skip counting in ten and two and working on number bonds to 5 and 10.
Our religious Education study this half term is 'Easter celebrating new life and new beginnings'
The aim of this unit is to:
• give children an opportunity to reflect upon the miracles of nature and new life during springtime.
• for pupils to hear and be able to retell the Easter Story.
• to make links between the transformation of plants and animals and the Easter story in order to develop an understanding of the resurrection.
- What do you think is the most important part of the Easter Story?
- In what way is the Easter Story about new life?
- How do you think people feel when someone they love has died?
- How does the life cycle of a butterfly reflect the events of Easter?
- In what way is Easter a new beginning?
