Welcome to our wonderful class.

In Year 1 you will find our class teacher Miss Thomas and our brilliant teaching assistant Mr Snell. 

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas break and are looking forward to a new term in Year 1.

In maths this term, we will be learning about 2D and 3D shapes and will explore numbers to 20 in greater detail. We will also be looking at addition and subtraction within 20. 

In science this term, our main focus will be animals including humans. We will identify and name a variety of common animals including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. We will also describe and compare the structure of a variety of common animals, identify, name, draw and label the basic parts of the human body and say which part of the body is associated with each sense, and identify and name a variety of common animals that are carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. 

In Geography this term, we will look at several skills. We aim to use world maps, atlases and globes to identify the United Kingdom and its countries, continents and oceans, use aerial photographs and plan perspectives to recognise landmarks and basic human and physical features, and look further at hot and cold areas of the world.
