Welcome to the new academic year in Y1 at Forefield Community Infant & Nursery School. We are very much looking forward to sharing an exciting year with your children with many super activities and topics planned. We also look forward to working in partnership with parents and carers to ensure the very best possible for your child.
By way of introduction, our Y1 team consists of Mrs Byrne, Class 6 teacher, Miss Oldham, Class 5 teacher and Year group leader and Mrs Niblock, Class 4 teacher.
Should you have any queries at anytime, please don’t hesitate to speak to your child’s class teacher or any of the team. We look forward to meeting you informally at the forthcoming ‘Meet the Teacher’ sessions – please see this week’s Year Group Newsletter for more details.
Autumn 1 in Year 1
The topic of We Are Sports Stars has been a great way to introduce the children to Year 1. Throughout the topic we have played a variety of different sports, developing an understanding for the need of game rules as well as learning to be part of a team. We even had a go at creating our very own games with rules before teaching them to other children.
In other subjects, we discovered the history of the Olympic Games, looked at inspirational athletes, found out about our own bodies and how our joints enable us to move, learnt about the five senses and made our own moving athletes. In Geography we located Goodison Park and Anfield on local maps and in computing we discovered how to create an algorithm before programming a Beebot to move around a map.
On top of all this, the children have been working incredibly hard on developing their phonic skills which in turn supports their reading and writing development and it was lovely to see the children retell the story of The Tortoise and the Hare in the final week of the half term. In Maths they have been working incredibly hard in order to master their understanding of number to 10 and the process of addition. We look forward to continue developing these skills after half term.
