Nile - Year One
This term in Year One our topic is – “What would Little Red Riding Hood find in the woods?” In English lessons we will be reading the story of Little Red Riding Hood and then using this to help us write labels, lists, captions and stories. We will also be writing about our favourite characters and why we like them. Our class novel this half term will be ‘The owl who was afraid of the dark’ by Jill Tomlinson. In Maths we will be focussing on place value within ten and addition and subtraction within ten. In science we will be investigating what plants need so that they can grow and finding out about the different parts of plants and trees. We will also be finding out about different types of weather and will begin to observe the changes we can see happening in the season of Autumn. In a few weeks, we are hoping to visit Whinmoor Library to meet the librarian and take part in a leaf hunt. During ICT the children will be learning to improve their mouse skills and they will be creating labels for Little Red Riding Hood.
Our PSHE topic this half term will be ‘Identity, Society and Equality: Me and others’ and our first MindMate (social, emotional and mental health) lesson will be ‘Feeling good and being me’. Please look out for MindMate tasks to try out at home in your child’s Learning Log!
Please could you make sure that children have indoor and outdoor PE kit in school at all times with trainers. REAL Gym will be on Monday with Mrs Higgins and REAL PE (games) will be with Miss Speck on Tuesday. Please look out for REAL Gym/PE tasks to try out at home in your child’s Learning Log!
Please continue to read with your child every night, write a comment in their diary and practise the sounds in their packs. Children are allowed to write that they have read in their diaries also.
Homework and new spellings will be sent home in Learning Logs every Friday and will need to be returned to school completed on Wednesday each week. Spelling tests will be on Friday each week.
