Koalas - Year 1



Our learning this half term is based around the topic 'Food Glorious Food'. 



In English we will start with the book Supertato Run, Veggies, Run and then design our own wanted poster. Later on we shall read Tasty Poems and use this to inspire us to write our own picnic poem. We shall then watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and write our own story about a visit to a Chocolate Factory.



This half term we will be learning about place value to 10, shape and pattern.  We will learn different strategies to help us with addition and subtraction calculations.   We will apply our learning in problem solving lessons. 






In Science we will learn about Animals including Humans.  We will be identifying and labeling the basic parts of the human body.  We will also be finding out about the five senses, and which part of the body is associated with each sense. 



In History  we will be learning about Mr Cadbury and how he contributed to the world.  The children will be designing, making and evaluating their own chocolate treat in Design Technology.  In music we will be following the Charanga Music Scheme. The children will learn to sing different styles of music and discuss how it makes them feel. Our Computing skills will be used throughout the half term in many of our other subjects, and we will also be learning how to open and use a paint program to create a self portrait.  Our RHSE theme this half term is Being Me in My World.  The children will be talking about how they are special and what makes a good friend. In RE we will be focusing on the topic of Myself and Caring for Others.  We will encourage the children to talk about what it feels like to belong to a group.



We are visiting the library on Monday 27th September

We will be visiting the allotment on Friday 1st October weather permitting.  Children can come in their school uniform with trainers/wellies and they will need weather appropriate clothing (coat/sunhat) 




We have P.E. on  Monday (Dance) and Wednesday (Games).  The dance will be bases around the theme Food Glorious Food.  In Games, they will focus on skills needed to play small group games. Children will need to come to school in their PE kit on these days.  Children will need a white or green round neck t-shirt, shorts and plimsolls or trainers.  They can also come in joggers.  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 Seesaw every Friday.  This may be a link to an activity on Education City or Bug Club.  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 get 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.  The number of reads your child has achieved will also be recorded on a chart which will be displayed in the classroom window.
