Nile - Year One
This half term in Year 1 our topic is, ‘Would you like to be the next Neil Armstrong?’. In this topic we will be learning about space and the moon. We will learn about the different planets and discover what happened when Neil Armstrong visited the moon. In Literacy we will be using the book - ‘Man on the Moon – A day in the life of Bob’ by Simon Bartram to help us with our writing. We will be writing instructions for how to make a cheese sandwich and information texts about the planets.
In Maths we will be studying place value to 20, addition and subtraction and learning how to tell the time. In art we will be looking at satellite images of different planets and then using them to create images of the different planets with pastels. During Science we will be investigating light and dark. We will find out about sources of light and reflectors of light. In ICT we will be learning how to program/control moon buggies on the moon using positional vocabulary.
PE will continue to be on Monday and Tuesday. Children need both indoor and outdoor kits with them in school every day and must remember to bring their trainers on PE days.
Please continue to read at home every night, practise sounds from your sound pack and practise your speed reading words.
