Nile - Year One
This term in Year 1 our topic is ‘Why do we love to be beside the seaside?’. During Literacy we will be studying ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’ book by Ronda and David Armitage and we will be using it to help us write letters, postcards and adventure stories. We will also be writing information texts about sea creatures and list poems about what to pack in our suitcases. Our topics in Maths are going to be: Place Value (within 100), Weight and Volume, Money and Time. In science we will be looking at the structure and classification of sea creatures and animal life cycles. During Geography we will also be looking at where people go on holiday, what attracts people to seaside resorts and the human and physical features found at the seaside.
In History we will be finding out about seaside holidays in the past and the clothes that were worn. We will be making 3D fish in Design Technology so that we can learn the skills of joining, fanning, quilling and how to make concertinas. Our topic in PSHE will be, Careers, financial capability and economic wellbeing: My Money.
PE will continue to be on Monday and Tuesday. Could you please make sure that your child has both indoor and outdoor kit in school at all times and trainers on PE days.
