Year 1 Downloads and Resources:


Term 1

Our Literacy will focus on two fiction stories called ‘How to be a Lion’ and ‘Can I build another me?’. We will be focusing on using finger spaces in our writing and using the sounds we already know to sound out words that we write. To begin with we will be doing lots of list writing before moving on to sentences. 

In Maths, we will explore place value with teen numbers.  We will be doing lots of counting, number recognition and sequencing. We will make Maths as practical as possible. Children will investigate numbers and learn how to solve problems in different contexts.

In Year 1 we want all children to have a love of reading. Just like in Reception, Phonics is taught daily. The children play games, sing songs and read books to support them to enjoy reading and discover new worlds in books.  

During Term 1 we ask children and parents to focus on reading as often as possible. The children can practise their phonics, read their school books or practise their key words. Parents should record their child’s reading in their reading record and this will be checked on a weekly basis.
