Year 1 Curriculum
LATEST NEWS: Please see below for our Phonics & Reading Workshop presentation from the meeting held Thurs 17th October 2019
We have two year 1 classes at Tudor School. 1O’s Class Teacher is Miss Foy and she is assisted by Miss Benjamin. 1P's class teacher is Miss Adams and she is assisted by Mrs Knight. Both classes also enjoy a weekly sports session with Mr Higgins.
Miss Scott (who teaches in year 2) is our phase leader for Key Stage 1 at Tudor Primary. However, following an unfortunate injury to Miss Scott (during the summer), Miss Adams is the interim phase leader for Key Stage 1.
In this area of our website you will be able to take a look at the fun, engaging and exciting things your children in Year 1 will be getting up to this year.
We will be uploading termly curriculum maps to go into more detail about each area.
Please bear in mind this is a working document as the teachers will be personalising the learning and topic links throughout the year.
Phonics is a key part of our everyday teaching to help your child to read. Knowing how each group of letters 'sound' can be tricky so we have added this link to help you when supporting your child at home - click here to go to the website.
Year 1 ‘Homes under the hammer’ (Autumn Term)
In Year 1, we’re learning about different types of homes. What’s the difference between detached and semi-detached? Just ask them and they’ll know! Selling your house? No need for an estate agent because Year 1 will be skilled at writing the perfect advert to sell your home. Need a lesson of the history of houses over time? Your child will be a historical expert before the end of the term.
In Science, we’re briefly looking at the living things in our garden and then jumping into the common materials found in our home. What are windows made of? They’ll know soon!
In Art, we’ll be looking at the work of the artist Paul Klee and exploring collage to recreate scenes from Jennie Baker’s book ‘Window.’ In DT, we’ll be designing and making our own houses.
In English, we’re building on our skills to spell using phonics and learning to spell tricky words that don’t follow the phonic rules they know. We’ll use our great spelling to form a sentence (or more) that uses finger spaces, full stops and capital letters. We’ll also build on our reading skills and practice answering questions to show our understanding of what we’ve read or hear. We’re looking forward to hearing stories such as ‘Peace at Last’ by Jill Murphy and the classic ‘The Three Little Pigs.’
In Maths, we’ll be touching on a whole variety of mathematical topics such as shape, directional language and numeracy. We’ll be learning what numbers to 20 look like and touching on numbers to 100.
