Year 1


Welcome to Year 1

I hope you have all a wonderful Christmas break and have spent time relaxing with family and friends.

My name is Mrs Gregory and I teach Year 1. I am new to Acton this year and I am enjoying getting to know the children, school and community.
The Year 1 children have all settled in exceptionally well throughout our first term together and I am delighted to be a part of their continued learning journey. We have so much to look forward to over the next half term.

This Term we have a brand new topic...

'Our Feathered friends!'

Our focus during this half term will be on Geography.
With the children exploring the migration of birds and how the animals are best suited to different climates depending on their physical attributes. Children will investigate the different coastal areas within the UK and compare them to the climates around the world.

Within Literacy we will be focusing on the text...

'Paper Planes'
by
Jim Helmore

In Literacy we will be exploring the text Paper Planes by Jim Helmore.
This text focus on a promise narrative and we will be exploring the meaning of a promise and its impact on relationships. The children will also be creating a range of messages that our birds, from our geography unit, could carry around the world.

Reading
Please read with your child 15 min per day and sign their home school diary. As well as this your child may be sent a pack of words to learn to read. Please practice these daily. 

Maths

To help children with their Maths journey please practise their number bonds to 20 and counting in twos, fives and tens. The children are becoming more confident with addition and subtraction and the leaning these number bonds will support them in their journey.  

Home Practise
If your child has produced a wonderful drawing, written a story, made a model or even completed some number sentences at home, please do send them to school! We love to share in your child achievements and see the fantastic work they complete at home!
