Welcome to Year 1
This term our Unit of Inquiry is ‘Knowing about our family’s history enables us to discover our cultural origins and develop historical awareness.’ We will be following different lines of inquiry to help us discover:
- Who am I and where do I come from?
- How am I like other people?
- What might it feel like to be part of a different culture?
In English we will start the term by introducing ‘Katie in London’ by James Mayhew. This will be our primary focus for the beginning of the term, although we will be supporting this by looking at other books throughout the term.
In maths this term we will be revisiting our number fact knowledge and will use this to support our learning of addition and subtraction. We will also be experimenting with length, height and weight using practical problems to compare and describe. We will be asking lots of questions about how we found our answers in maths this term to practise our reasoning skills. We will look at a range of common 2D and 3D shapes and will use appropriate vocabulary to describe their position and properties. Lastly, we will be practising telling the time to the hour and half past the hour, discussing and sequencing our daily routines.
