5-6 year olds
Welcome to Year 1! This half term we are very excited to welcome Barnaby Bear to Year 1, who will help us explore the local area of Cardea. We are going to be taking him on a walk around Cardea, showing him what facilities we have here and what changes we can see going on around us. We will inform him of what we like about Cardea and what might make our local area even better.
Barnaby Bear will also help us explore the plants and trees in our school and local area, helping us identify and name them and observing what happens to them as the seasons change over this term.
In Literacy we are embracing our new Talk for Writing approach, starting with the story ‘One Ted Falls Out of Bed’ and moving on to ‘Biscuit Bear’ just before October half term. Ask us if we can show you the actions to the story!
In Numeracy we are continuing to secure our number knowledge to 20, practising writing numbers to 20 correctly, perfecting our one-to-one correspondence counting and demonstrating our skills of addition and subtraction using numicon, counting cubes and other physical resources.
Please make sure you practise spelling and reading your tricky and high frequency words and reading every night if you can-those reading beads will soon start adding up!
