Year 1

Rainbow Fish & Elmer Classes

Curriculum for SPRING TERM 1

This Half Term we will be exploring Animals including humans and their characteristics.

As Readers

Our English text will be around the book ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. During our guided reading sessions, we will become familiar with the book and we will be picking out new vocabulary, working on inference, predicting what may happen next and why, explaining what is happening and sequencing the events. They will also be retelling the story, changing some features and inventing a new version of the story.

Key Vocabulary: wolf, woodcutter, Little Red Riding Hood, grandma, forest, basket, cloat, eyes, ears, teeth, sharp, cottage, scarlet, crimson, suddenly, happily, unfortunately, greedily, dash, axe.

Key Vocabulary: Vocabulary, inference, predict, explain, retrieve, sequence.

As Writers

We are going to be writing descriptions of the characters. They will also write a descriptive poem of a character and they will write a recount of the story.

Key Vocabulary: adjectives (describing words), nouns (person, animal, thing) and verbs (doing words). Question and exclamation marks.

As Mathematicians

We will continue to deepen our knowledge of numbers up to 50. We will continue to work on addition and subtraction. We will also learn about 2D and 3D shapes, length and height and will continue to practise our reasoning and problem solving skills.

Key Vocabulary: forwards, backwards, one more/less, equal, more/greater, less/fewer than, numbers (one, two, three, etc), add/put together, subtract/take away, how many altogether/left?, and shapes (triangle, square, cylinder, pyramid, cube, rectangle, etc)

As Explorers

We will explore animals including humans and their characteristics. We will be able to identify and label the parts of the human body and the 5 senses. Whilst exploring animals, we will focus on what they eat and describe and compare the structure of a variety of common animals.

Key Vocabulary: carnivore, herbivore, omnivore, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals, see, hear, taste, smell and feel.

PE

Children will have 2 hours of PE per week on Monday morning and Tuesday afternoon. Children must have a full PE kit in school at all times. If the children take their kit home for clubs, it must be returned the next day. Children who do not have the appropriate full kit in school are unable to take part in PE, which is an important part of the curriculum. Please ensure all items, including footwear are labelled. This includes: A plain (with or without the Freshwaters logo) white T-shit, Navy blue PE shorts. A navy blue tracksuit (to include a jumper and bottoms). A spare pair of socks would also be of benefit. Please ensure the children have a pair of trainers in their PE bag, for outdoor PE.

Home Learning

Homework will be given to the children every Friday. Homework is due to be completed and handed in the following Wednesday. Children need encouragement and support to complete their homework at this age. Please ensure that you are encouraging your children. Spellings will be given out every Friday, they are to be kept at home, reviewed daily to be prepared for the test the following Friday. Children should be encouraged to read daily and at least once every other day with an adult. Reading for just 10-15 minutes per day will have a huge impact on the children’s fluency.
