Koalas - Year 1



Our learning this half term is based around the theme Where the wild things are




 In English we will be reading The Bug Girl. Will be reading and writing riddles about minibeasts and creating a fact sheet about our chosen minibeast. 



This half term we will be learning about numbers to 100, addition and subtraction and money. We will apply our learning in problem solving lessons. 






In Science our learning focus around Living Things and their Habitats. The children will be investigating our wildlife area, have a visit from some minibeasts from White Post Farm, and observe our very own Ant Farm.



In Geography our learning will be focus around map skills.  We will look at aerial photographs to find out where we are, and will learn that Clipstone is in Nottinghamshire, in England. We will learn that a key tells us what symbols mean on a map, and will learn about compass directions North, East, South and West. 

 In Art and Design, the children will be learning about the artist Caroline Bell and how she uses natural materials to paint and print with. 

In Music we are following the Charanga Scheme of work Your Imagination. The children will learn to listen and appraise different styles of music and discuss how it makes them feel. The children will be using their voices to perform a song, and play along using instruments. 

Our Computing skills will be used throughout the half term in many of our other subjects, and we will also be learning to use the chromebooks to create and format text.

  Our RHE theme this half term is Relationships.  In RE the learning will focus on Beliefs and Stories about Jesus.

We have P.E. on  Monday (Dance) and Friday (Games - Rounders).  Children will need to come to school in their PE kit on these days, unless the Monday is their Forest School day.  Children will need a white or green round neck t-shirt, shorts and plimsolls or trainers.  They can also come in navy blue or black joggers and jumper/hoodie.  Long hair will need to be tied back.  If possible, earrings should be taken out.  If this is not possible, they should be covered with plasters or micro-pore tape.




Homework will be posted on Weduc every Friday.  This may be a link to an activity on Education City or a spelling activity.  The children need to complete this by the following Wednesday and they will receive a stamp on their Bear Hunt Sheet for all completed homework.



We expect children to read every night at home, and this to be recorded in the children's reading diary.  Children will put stickers in their diary when they have reached 25, 50, 75, 100, 125, 150, 175 and 200 nights worth of reading, along with a small reward.
