Year 1 is such an exciting place to learn!
It's all about increasing independence and discovering new ways of learning
Lessons are more structured, yet still hands on and practical, building on the excellent foundation laid in Reception. We use lots of resources to help us count and add, for example; counting beads, cubes, number lines and 100 squares. We perfect our number formation and gain confidence in counting up to and over 100, as well as explore all four operations, addition, subtraction, division and multiplication. We learn to count in 2's , 5's and 10's and have daily phonic lessons which are interactive and fun.
We soon become increasingly able to put our thoughts into words and structured sentences as well as read independently and there is a large focus on widening our vocabulary.
Our topic this term is 'Our World' where we explore our own identities, feelings and emotions, likes and dislikes. We enjoy learning together and collaborate often in tasks.
Our ethos is one of not being afraid to get things wrong and we understand that with practise, we become more confident and able. We are rewarded for our perseverance on tasks, our curiosity, our ability to communicate our thoughts and our ability to make connections between different areas of our learning.
We are strong believers in; "What we learn becomes part of who we are!"
