Year 1

5-6 year olds

Welcome to Key Stage 1 and our Year 1 classes

Welcome to Year 1! This half term we are very excited to welcome Barnaby Bear to Year 1, who will help us explore the local area of Cardea. We are going to be taking him on a walk around Cardea, showing him what facilities we have here and what changes we can see going on around us. We will inform him of what we like about Cardea and what might make our local area even better.

Barnaby Bear will also help us explore the plants and trees in our school and local area, helping us identify and name them and observing what happens to them as the seasons change over this term. 

In Literacy we are continuing to embrace the Talk for Writing approach, starting with the story ‘One Ted Falls Out of Bed’, moving onto ‘Goldilocks and the 3 Bears’ and finally writing instructions for How to make Bear Biscuits, based on the story ‘Biscuit Bear’. Ask us if we can show you the actions to the stories!

In Numeracy we are continuing to secure our number knowledge to 20, practising writing numbers to 20 correctly, perfecting our one-to-one correspondence counting and demonstrating our skills of addition and subtraction using numicon, counting cubes and other physical resources.

Please make sure you practise spelling and reading your tricky and high frequency words and reading every night if you can-the more times you read, the better the benefits.

Please make sure you practise spelling your tricky and high frequency words and reading every night if you can - our reading beads are adding up!
