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 our topic is based around 'The Great Fire of London'.
In History we will discover how the fire started an what happened to London and the people that lived there during 1666.
We will make a moving picture in Design Technology and examine the Christian celebration of Baptism and what it means to belong.
PSHE will focus on how we can keep ourselves safe.
This half term in English we will work on stories with repeated patterns - looking at The Highway Rat and writing an Information Text about the Great Fire of London. Ask your child to retell you the story we are learning in class - they even have actions too!
In Maths we will focus on multiplication and division as well as counting in 2, 5, and 10s.
