Year 1

This half term, Year 1 we will be looking at the monarchy and Alice in Wonderland.

Our core text will be ‘Alice in Wonderland’.

We will be finding out about where the monarchy live, what a coronation is and how it will differ from the coronation in 1953. 

We will be writing a fact file about the King, writing instructions on how to make a sandwich and making invitations to our tea party. 

In maths, we will be exploring capacity, multiplication and division (2s, 5s and 10s) and revisiting addition and subtraction to 20. You may also want to use Hit the Button.

This year, we are using a phonics scheme called Little Wandle. We will send home two books on a Friday - your child’s Little Wandle reading book and a library book that you can enjoy as a family. Please ensure that these are brought back into school on the Monday so that we can continue our phonics learning. 

Little Wandle - Resources for Parents

Your child can also access the Little Wandle library online.

Please ask your child’s class teacher for their login information.

Please make sure your child has an appropriate PE kit (white t-shirt, black/dark blue shorts, pumps/trainers) in a bag that they can leave on their peg in the cloakroom until half term.
