This term we will be reading a range of books including 'The Gruffalo' by Julia Donaldson and 'The Three Little Pigs' We will be using these texts as a stimulus for story writing, instructions and descriptive writing. In Maths we will be working hard on place value within 50, addition and subtraction within 20, length and height and mass and volume.
Our topics are 'How are our toys different to those Grandma and Grandad played with?' and 'What materials should the three pigs have used to build their houses?' As part of these topics we will become scientists looking at materials and their properties as well and continuing our investigation of the seasons. As historians we will compare toys from the past with our own toys as well as explore what life was like for children when Queen Victoria was the monarch. We will be having a visit from The History Van to enrich this topic on Tuesday 24th January.
Year 1 will have PE on Thursday morning and Forest School on Wednesday afternoon.
