Nile - Year One

This half term in Year 1, we will be continuing with our topic – ‘Why can’t a Meerkat live in the North Pole?’. In Literacy we will be writing reports about Desert and Polar animals and recounts from our trip to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park! In Maths we will be learning about multiplying and dividing, fractions, length and height. During Science lessons we will be naming different materials and finding out about their properties. In Art we will be looking at hot and cold colours and we will also be drawing Emperor Penguins in the style of Edward Wilson. In ICT we are going to be using ‘Pebble Go’ to learn more about polar animals which will help us to write our reports and we are going to be learning how to use flip cameras so that we can film our trip. We will also collect data from the class about our favourite Polar animals and then learn how to present this data on the computer. During Geography lessons we will find out where the places we are studying are on a world map and in History we will be finding out about the explorer, Scott of the Antarctic. In PSHE this half term, our mental health and emotional wellbeing topic will be ‘Feelings’.

PE will continue to be on Monday and Tuesday. Children still need both indoor and outdoor PE kit in school at all times and trainers on PE days!

Please remember to keep reading every night and to practise the sound cards in your child’s sound packs daily. The Government Phonics Screening Test is fast approaching! Our trip to Whinmoor Library will be on Tuesday 8th May and our trip to The Yorkshire Wildlife Park will be on Thursday 10th May. I will send more details about the trips nearer the time.
