Curriculum Information: Woodland
Our topic for this term is ‘Where we live’. We will learn about the geographical features we have in Thorne eg. The canal, motorway, shops, parks, etc. We will also be learning about maps and directions including points on a compass.
We will read several different books this term including The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Oliver’s Vegetables, Room on the Broom and Mog’s Christmas Calamity. We will also be using these books for our writing activities.
In maths, we will concentrate on number and place value and also adding and subtracting and then moving on to shape and measure.

Hook Session: Year 1 will have a session in Forest school – date to be announced, which will introduce them to their new topic.
PE: Our Sports Coach PE lesson will be on a Thursday. Children need to come to school in their PE kits and will not be required to bring their uniform to change into after.
Reading: We love reading in year 1! We will be reading a range of books throughout the year and we encourage you to read to you r child as often as you can. Your child will bring home a reading book on a Monday and a Friday. These books are linked to phonics so that your child is able to sound out and blend the words in the books. Please listen to your child read every day as it really does help. Please remember to sign their reading records too.
