Class 4 Year 1 2017 - 2018

Welcome to back to January 2018 and a brand new term!


We hope that you have all had a happy and restful break and are looking forward to this Spring term.


Our RE topic is Families and celebrations. The children will learn about what it means to be a member of a family and to be a member of the school community. They will learn what it means to belong to the Church family. They will hear how Jesus’ family took him to the Temple and think about why this was a special occasion. They will learn about some of the celebrations in the Church and why we celebrate these occasions.

In English we will listen to and read some traditional tales, explaining how they used to be passed down orally. The children will be able to retell and sequence stories and discuss others that they have read or heard. We will establish that proper nouns begin with capitals and write sentences that contain 'because'.

 In Maths we will represent and use number bonds and related subtraction facts within 20. We will read, write and interpret mathematical statements involving addition (+), subtraction (-) and equals (=) signs and add and subtract one-digit and two-digit numbers to 20, including zero. 

The children will continue to have access to a wide range of colour banded books which they can choose and change within the classroom. Please make sure that your child is reading every day and that any reading completed at home is recorded in their reading diaries. 

Homework will be given out in Homework books on a Friday. Please return to school on Monday. 

Our updated curriculum map is available on the website, which will give further information on all of the above. 

Many thanks in anticipation of all your support and hard work.
