Year 1 – Term 4 Curriculum Letter 2018
We are half way through the year already - time is certainly flying! The topic for term four is “Paws, Claws and Whiskers”. We will be classifying different kinds of animals and thinking about how they need to be looked after. We hope to have special visitors in with their pets to talk to us about the important jobs they do. Later in the term we plan a visit to Bristol Zoo to look at more exotic creatures and find out how they are cared for. Information about this will follow after the holiday. (Apologies in advance if you get lots of requests for new pets!) Image result for images dogs and cats
Maths and English
We hope you enjoyed our open classrooms last term when we showed you how we deliver maths lessons using a mastery maths approach. This term we will be continuing to develop fluency with calculation strategies. We will be beginning a unit of work on measuring, (length, weight and capacity) and moving on to an introduction to fractions (halves and quarters). In English we will be continuing to work on writing a series of sentences using basic punctuation consistently and accurately using fables as a starting point. We are having a big push this term on spelling tricky words correctly in our own writing. Our cursive handwriting is really improving in handwriting practice – now we need to use it in all of our writing too! We are planning another home learning opportunity similar to our peg doll adventure from the autumn term. Look out for a special something in book bags mid-term…
In PSHE we will be thinking about our bodies and how they change as we get older. We will be thinking about things we can do now and things we cannot do yet. It will also be Health Week at the beginning of March. The theme for this year is “Trying Something New”. We will be learning about ways to keep fit and healthy.
