At the beginning of the year, we allow time for the children to settle into Year One and the more structured way of learning from their time in Nursery and Reception. In Maths we concentrate on place value and ensuring children are confident with their numbers to both 10 and 20. We start looking at addition and subtraction as well as identifying different shapes. In English we meet Beegu, who is lost and needs our help. We use our Design and Technology lessons to create Beegu a healthy snack and our Geography lessons to help create photo trials around the school so Beegu knows how to get about. Our music learning relates to our Religious Education on the ‘Life of a Christian Child’ and we learn songs for both our Harvest Celebration Assembly and Nativity Play. Our history focus for the term is all about old and new toys and we create a museum to show these to each other in chronological order and use our Science learning to identify the different materials the toys were made from and how the materials have changed over time.
