Maths: We will be looking at counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.
History: We will be looking at how the use of horse and carts have changed over the year.
Art: We will be continuing to colour in our Van Gogh or Monet flowers.
RE and Music will be in class cohorts with Oak.
Reception will be learning:
Phonics: We will be doing some phase 4 sounds.
Maths: We will be learning how to recognise odd and even numbers.
English: We will be observing and discussing the arrival and changes to our chicks.
Please ensure all children bring a bottle of water (no juice) and a coat with them each day.
Miss Gaff 😊
P.E: This will be on a Thursday for both Reception and Year 1 and on a Friday Year 1 have their additional lesson. Please ensure long hair is tied back.
Year 1 Spellings: Spellings will be sent home on a Wednesday for the children to practice. The children will be tested on these the following Wednesday. Please ensure their purple spelling folder is returned every Wednesday ready for the new spellings for the week. The children will have 10 words in total. 5 words will be from the words in the term section below and 5 words will be high frequency words for Year 1.
Homework: The Year 1 children will have a black homework folder that will be sent home with work inside to complete. This will be sent home on Fridays and is expected to be returned to school by the following Wednesday. Please encourage your child to ensure this is completed.
Reception homework will be placed in school bags on a Friday with more often than not a letter go with it or a message on Tapestry.
Reading: Please support your child and ensure they read at home every night (even just for 15 minutes) as this will support them greatly. The children will be reading every other day in school and have their books changed twice a week. The books will only be changed if they have read them at home so ensure you have signed their reading books.
Here you will find the curriculum for Lilac Class for Year 1. Please see Willows class page for Reception.
Under each term you will find the curriculum overview and the spellings for that term.
