Y1 Eugenie Clark Class

Welcome to Year 1

Our literacy work this year will be based on quality children’s books including Naughty Bus by Jan and Jerry Oke and Cave Baby by Julia Donaldson.  We will use the texts to identify the features of sentences including punctuation (capital letters, full stops, question marks and exclamation marks). Using these texts we will be creating stories, non-fiction work and poetry.  In phonics we will continue to learn new sounds for reading and writing and will be focussing on reading high frequency words. We will be following the 'Read, Write, Inc' scheme.

 In maths we will be covering all areas – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, place value, measure and shape and direction.   Our focus this year is reasoning and children being able explain how they have worked out the answer.

 These are our science questions:

 These are our humanities questions:
