Welcome to Base 1!


What are we learning?

In our maths lessons this term we will be focusing heavily on number, addition and subtraction. We will be counting in 2s 5s 10s and starting to look at division as sharing. We will also look at 2D and 3D shapes as well as money and money problems.


In English we will be starting ‘the write stuff’ and our first unit is Pinocchio. We will also be improving our letter formation and sentence skills.


In the first half term our science topic is animals including humans. We will be looking at different animals and their features as well as animal groups including reptiles and mammals. Later in the term our topic will change to seasonal changes where we will look at the different seasons and weather.


Visits and visitors

We will be using our visit to the safari park last term to help us with our science topic animals including humans. Some of us will be competing in sports events throughout the term including ‘outdoor and adventurous activities.’


Important days

Thursday and Friday are our PE days.


Spellings are sent home on a Monday and tested on a Friday.


Children can change their book when needed, they are asked to place their book in the green basket by the curtain and it will be changed as soon as possible. We encourage children to change their book once or twice a week. They should be reading at home at least 3 times a week and this recorded in their diary please.
