Welcome to the Year One web page.

Year 1 – Autumn term overview

In Maths we are focussing on Place value and addition and subtraction. We will be using lots of concrete objects to support our learning and will try and make Maths as practical as possible. I have included the Maths long term plan within this pack. At home: You could practise number formation and counting to 20 confidently.

In English our core texts this half term are 'Rumble in the Jungle' and 'Giraffes can’t dance'. We will be focusing on: letter formation, handwriting, using Phonics to help us write words and writing sentences using capital letters and full stops. 

Our IPC topic this half term is: The Earth Our Home.
