Ladybirds - Year 1


Hello Ladybirds and welcome to our class page!  I hope you have had a restful and relaxing break and are ready for an exciting new term of learning. 

This term, our topic is called 'The First Flight'.  Within this topic we will be looking at how the Wright Brothers developed and created the first powered engine for flight.   

We have lots of exciting work to carry out.  It is going to be a busy term but I know you will all enjoy your learning.

For further information about our learning this term, please see the link to our class topic web below.

Reading is so important and is such an enjoyable aspect of our day.  Please continue to read, share and enjoy books at home with you child. You can also continue to practise any sight words that your child may have.

Phonics Bug and e-books

At school, we use Bug Club resources during our Phonics lessons and supporting games and e-books are available for children to use to support their learning at home. Please log in to your child's account using their personal log in details, which are on the front of their reading diary.

Phonics Play also has some interactive reading and spelling games for your child to complete.

In maths we are looking at addition and subtraction with 10 and 20. 

We are contnuing to develop our confidence in finding one more and one less than a given number and will be comapring numbers using greater than, less than and equal to. 

We will be reviewing and practicing our number bonds to 10 and 20 as well as our doubles.  

There are some lovely dances and counting songs that we do regularly with the children in school as well as some fun interactive games.
