Welcome to Lowry - Year 1!
In Lowry class we live and breathe our School Values of R.E.S.P.E.C.T as well as our Habits of Mind.
Welcome to the Lowry class page of our school website.
The Year 1 team is Miss Kent, the Y1 teacher, along with Mrs Chater who supports the children with their learning.
Year 1 is a wonderful year where the children become little learners. They are encouraged to join in with all learning and really push themselves! This helps to set them up for a very successful journey at CKS.
Our key concepts this half term is Success which will link into our Geography topic about Beaches and Coasts. This will begin with a very exciting ‘hook-on’ day all about the seaside on Friday 26th April 2019. Our exit activity to consolidate our learning will be a very fun day trip to West Wittering Beach on Friday 21st June.
Our key concept for the second half of term is Growth and Family which links very nicely to our History topic of Victorian Washday.
Our R.E. topic for this half term is an Understanding Christianity unit all about God and why He is so important to Christians. This topic has strong links to our Christian values and our School Values of R.E.S.P.E.C.T.
In English lessons we will be using the seaside as our stimulus looking at visual and seaside poetry and persuasion texts. We will also be writing stories with familiar settings and using traditional tales as a basis for oral debates. We will continue with daily Reading roundabout workshops and these will include group Guided Reading. We will also be continuing to learn and recap our phase 3 and 5 phonics sounds and will also be practising reading real and nonsense words.
This term in Maths we will continue to focus on and develop our knowledge of place value, adding and subtracting, introducing early multiplication and division skills, recognising odd and even numbers, and shapes. We will also continue to look at money as well as introducing telling the time to o’clock and half past- anything you can do at home to help this will be amazing!
There are many events happening this term for Y1 and their parents, they include:
Year 1 trip to West Wittering- Friday 21st June
Year 1 Listen to Me Concert- Tuesday 9th July @ 2.30pm
