Welcome to the Leaping Lambs page!
What a busy and fun year we have planned - you can follow what we are doing on our year 1 twitter page:

Our topic this term is called "Where we live". We will be learning about what geographical features we have in Thorne e.g. canal, motorway, shops, parks, etc and about the types of homes we live in. We are also going to learn about maps and directions using the points on a compass.

In literacy, we will be reading several different books this term including The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Rosie's Walk, Meg and Mog and The Snowman. We will use these books for our writing activities too.

In maths, we will be concentrating on number for the first half term and then moving on to doubling and halving and learning about shape and measure.

We love reading in year 1! We will be reading a range of books throughout the year and we encourage you to read to your child as often as you can. Your child will bring home a reading book at the beginning of the week and a guided reading book at the end of the week - please listen to your child read every day as it really does help and please remember to sign their reading record too. Their reading book will be an easier level than their guided reading book to help build their confidence and their fluency. You can also read books online with your child on the 'Rising Stars' website - your child's log in details are in the front of their reading record. We are also sending home sets of high frequency words for your child to practise reading and also writing.

Our science topic this term is 'Seasons' - we will be learning all about the different seasons we have over a year.

Our PE day is Tuesday. Please send your child's PE kit in a bag and make sure all their clothes are labelled. As all PE lessons are currently taking place outside, please make sure your child has a change of footwear and clothes that will keep them warm.

Home Learning
For home learning in year 1, we would like you to:
*read regularly with your child
*practise reading and writing the high frequency words we are sending out
*practise counting forwards and backwards within 10, 20, 50 and 100.
If you would like some extra activities to do, we do put activities on 'Education City' - the log in is the same as for 'Rising Stars' and is in the front of your child's reading record.
