Welcome to Year 1!
Our Year 1 class is called Scafell Pike. We study a different topic every half term, so that the children have an exciting variety of learning experiences.
This term we have completed our topic on Dinosaurs in English, focussing on the endearing story of ‘T-Veg’, the vegetarian T-Rex, by Smriti Prasadam-Halls. We have also completed some dinosaur fact-files and had a go at writing our own dinosaur poetry! We are moving onto our topic on Castles this half term, finding out who lived in them and how to build the strongest one.
In Maths we will be focussing on number, place value, mental addition, subtraction and some geometry.
The children are improving their swimming skills in their lessons every Monday, as well as being involved in a variety of sports activities twice a week to work on their spacial awareness and turn-taking skills.
