This terms topic in Year 1 is:
At the beginning of term the children will receive a very important letter from the King, asking if Year 1 could organise a party to celebrate Cinderella's wedding.
The children will be looking at the story of Cinderella by writing recounts and character profiles. The children will also be creating party decorations to decorate our venue. The children will be writing invitations for our party and experimenting with different party foods to find out which ones are most liked by their class mates. The children will then be using this to write party menus.
In Maths the children will be looking at data handling by doing a survey to find out what is the favourite party food in our year group. The children will be using foods to experiment with weight and capacity, and also looking at money.
In Science the children will be looking at different materials and sorting them into different groups depending on their properties. The children will also be learning about what it means to be healthy by creating healthy plates and learning about how excercise can help our bodies.
In Phonics, the children will be streamed depending on their ability. This term children will be beginning Phase 5 or recapping Phase 3 before starting Phase 5.
