Discoverers 2021 - 2022

Miss Percival

Welcome to Discoverers! 


Your class teacher: Miss Jones

Welcome to Year 1! We love to come to school and learn something new every day! 

Summer 1 

Big Question: Where do the wheels on the bus take us? 

This half term, children will learn about our local area and where we could travel to. This will include the physical and human features in the area. Children will use their georgraphical skills around our school and our local area to give directions using different types of maps. They will look at local citities in the United Kingdom and which citities are close to our school. The children will be able to use this knowledge, and these skills, when we have a minibus tour of the local area!

In English, we will learn about the story Toys in Space by Mini Grey.

In Maths, we will learn about multipication, division and fractions. We will also look at positioning and direction of shapes. 

Key information 

  • PE will be every Thursday. PE kits will remain in school and go home at the end of each half term to be cleaned. PE will be mostly outdoors so please provide your child with the appropriate kit.
  • Reading books will be changed EVERY FRIDAY. Please read with your child EVERY NIGHT! Reading is the most important factor to learning. If you cannot read, you cannot learn.
  • Book bags must be brought in EVERY DAY!
  • Home work will be sent home on a Monday and is to be retruned on a FRIDAY. 
  • Your child needs to bring a water bottle to school every day and it must be filled only with water.

Set 1 Green word links

Set 3 Green word links

IDEA - You could use the green word slide shows (links above) on an I-pad and the children have to read the word when it shows on the screen. You can change the time difference between the words at the bottom using the plus and minus.
