Year 1 - Squirrels and Frogs


Spring Term 2018

Welcome back! We trust you all had lots of festive fun and are looking forward to a new term together.


In Maths we are partitioning numbers using the part, part whole model.  We will also be consolidating our understanding of subtraction and addition.  We will be looking at measures; length, weight, height and volume.


We will be consolidating our phonetic knowledge especially split digraphs and sound families. We will also be focusing on extending our sentences by using conjunctions, (and, because, so) and other punctuation marks.


This term will be finding out about The Great Fire of London and reading and writing our own Traditional Tales. 


This term we will be learning about Everyday Materials and Plants. We will be linking both of these to our topic work.

 PE lessons

As the weather improves will be going outside during some lessons so please ensure the children have tracksuit bottoms and tops.

Frogs: Monday and Wednesday

Squirrels: Tuesday and Thursdays.

 Spellings and Homework

Spellings and homework will be given out on a Wednesday. The homework will be based around the work that the children have undertaken during that particular week in school. Please return homework and spelling books by the following Tuesday. Spellings will be tested on Wednesdays.

 We look forward to working with you throughout the year.
