Welcome to Rabbits.
I hope you all enjoyed your summer and are just as excited as I am to come back to school! I cannot wait to meet you all.
For our first term back, we will be looking at a super fun topic 'What makes an animal an animal?'. In this topic we will be learning all about herbivores, carnivores and omnivores. We will be spotting amphibians, reptiles and mammals as well as exploring the basic needs of an animal. Following from out topic, we will be learning about the French painter, Henri Rousseau.
In English, we will be looking at the book ‘The Three Little Pigs’. The children have looked at this book last year. This will be a great way for them to progress from their learning in EYFS and explore the book after already being familiar with it. We will be using this book to help us identify and order the main events of a story. The book will also help us describe the characters in the different parts of the story.
There will also be many reading opportunities for the children. We will have an afternoon a week focused on reading where the children will be able to read one to one to an adult, as well as working in guided reading groups supported by an adult and engaging in various independent reading activities. A variety of books will also be read to the whole class daily. Phonics will be taught every day and we will be following the phonics scheme, ‘Sounds Write’.
Mathematics will primarily focus on arithmetic skills as well as looking at place value too. We will also revisit some of the curriculum from their time in EYFS. During this first half term, the children will have their maths lessons set out similarly to their lessons in EYFS where they will enjoy a free flow approach to settle them into their first half term in year 1.
PE will take place on Thursday afternoons. Children will need to come to school in their outdoor P.E kit.
