"You are the people of God; he loved you and chose you for his own. So then you must clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience… And to all these qualities add love, which binds all things together in prefect unity." Colossians 3:12,14
In Mathematics, the children will begin a unit on 'Place Value' including counting, ordering and comparing, recognising numbers in numerals and words and representing numbers with equipment.
As we progress through the Autumn Term the children will work on 'Addition and Subtraction'. They will learn to recognise that numbers can be made up of 'parts' and 'wholes' and they will use the mathematical symbols + - =
In Year 1 we will continue to work on the 'Mastering Number' programme to support the pupils in developing fluency. They will use a range of practical resources including numicon, rekenreks and tens frames .
In Year One, pupils will need to learn number bonds to make 10. They will need to recall them from memory. They will have lots of opportunities to practise using equipment like the Numicon shapes shown below.
In our English lessons this half term we will be reading the following texts to inspire the children's writing: 'The Colour Monster' by Anna Llenas, 'The Pig's Knickers' by Jonathan Emmett and 'The Bog Baby' by Jeanne Willis.
The pupils will continue to attend daily Phonics lessons using the Read, Write, Inc programme to develop their phonic knowledge for reading and spelling.
We would recommend that children read their home reading book daily to an adult to practise the skills they are learning at school.
Watch the video clip from Ruth Miskin, as she explains how we use the phonics programme Read, Write Inc to teach the children in Year 1 to blend and read simple words.
Here are the common exception words that pupils in Key Stage One learn to read and spell. Some of these are included on the weekly spelling tests. The children will be given their spellings to learn in the next few weeks.
