WELCOME TO YEAR 1
A very warm welcome to our children, families and visitors to our class page. We hope you enjoy reading about some of the things we get up to in year 1 as we definitely have lots of fun. In year 1 we are very busy learning every day! We continue to build on all the skills that we learnt in Reception that we will need throughout school in order to be independent learners who are motivated, curious and construct a love for learning.
Please do not hesitate to contact the school office if you have any queries.
We look forward to an exciting and busy term in Rabbit Class!
Miss West and Mrs Hastings.
Timetable: Term 4
Bright Lights, Big City
This term our topic is all about the weather and how it works. We will be imaging what it is like to float high above the clouds and discussing our favourite seasons and the weather we experience throughout the year. What weather do you prefer?
Whole Class Reading
This term, in addition to phonics, we will be starting Whole Class Reading (WCR) using ICLUE. ICLUE is a set of comprehension based reading symbols that help us to focus more specifically on the different comprehension skills. Each symbol will help us to think about each comprehension target explicitly and enable us to explore these targets in greater depth. These targets are listed below:
Inference and deduction
Locating and retrieving
The activities are largely discussion based and we will be looking at different traditional tales. Our WCR book this week (W/C 08.03.21) is 'The Elves and the Shoemaker'.
