Curriculum Overview - Srping Term 2018
Expect elephants in the room and monkey business in Year 1 this half term as we start our new topic Going Wild! We will be asking the Big Question:
What do we need to know to set up a zoo?
To answer the question we will be finding out about animal habitats around the world (Geography focus), classifying animals into different groups (Science focus) and using ICT to research facts about animals (Computing focus). We will be using everything we learn to set up our very own Isle of Ely zoo role play. We hope to take the children to visit a zoo to find out more about the job of a zookeeper from the experts. A separate letter will be sent with more details very soon.
In maths, we will be learning more about multiplication and division. We will be investigating capacity and comparing measurements and we will also revisit place value, looking at numbers above 100. We hope to see many of you at our maths share session in February.
In English, we are developing our descriptive vocabulary, thinking about WOW words and when to use them in writing. If you find an interesting adjective in a book at home write it on a post-it for our working wall. We will be learning about writing non-fiction recounts. We will also be learning new digraphs in phonics. Look out for phonics worksheets that come home and ask your child to teach you the letters and sounds.
PE will be on Thursday mornings and ‘Show and Share’ has been moved to Wednesdays. We will share a theme for ‘Show and Share’ in the newsletter each week. Please ensure your child has a PE kit suitable for outdoor games in this colder weather, thank you. Music sessions with Mrs Allen will continue on a Friday afternoon.
