Year 1 Mrs Townson
Hello, my name is Mrs Townson and I am Year One's Class Teacher. I work with Mrs Goodwin and Miss McElhone. On Monday Year One is taught by Miss Edmondson and Mrs Goodwin.
We have PE on Monday afternoon. Please send your child to school in their PE kit and school jumper or plain blue or black jumper. Please remove any earrings - earrings in general should be studs not hoops and removed on Mondays for PE. Children can also bring an extra layer e.g. a blue / black hoodie as they will be having PE outside.
We will change reading books as often as possible as books need to be quarantined between reads. Please read every night with your child and continue to read the same book until it is changed. One of the Key Learning Indicators for reading in year one is to "Develop fluency, accuracy and confidence by re-reading books." so please re-read away!
Below you will find details of our curriculum and what we are currently studying.
If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact me over dojo. Our set school hours are 8am until 5pm. Please register to see regular updates and messages.
This half term in Year one we will be focusing on 'The wider world'
Our topic is called Fantastic beasts and where to find them. We will be looking at the world and the animals that inhabit it. In Science we will look at our a range of animals and how they adapted to live where they do. In Geography we are going to be locating the continents of the world, the oceans and where in the world is hot and cold. We will focus on drawing skills in Art and examine the Jewish celebration of Sukkot.
PSHE will focus on how we prepare to live in the wider world.
This half term in English we will work on stories by the same author - looking at Oliver Jeffers' stories and writing Non-chronological reports. Ask your child to retell you the story we are learning in class - they even have actions too!
