Spring Term 2016



In the Spring term our topic is Treasure.  We will be hunting for treasure in computing and using map skills to look at and make different maps throughout the curriculum. We are going to design and make some treasure and something to keep our money safe.  During the term we will find out about famous pirates and sailors.  If you have any books about treasure or pirates, please feel free to bring them in to share with the class.

Year 1 Pirate Day!


The children have enjoyed being Pirates for a day.  They have followed clues to find hidden treasure, dressed up in their Pirate clothes and have even performed in their class assembly about 'Treasure'.



We are going to continue building up our understanding of sentences by using full stops, capital letters, nouns, verbs and adjectives.  We will also be retelling 'The Night Pirates' and finding out about characters.  During the term we are going to try and remember all phonemes and use them to blend and segment real and made up words.




We will be counting forwards and backwards to 30.  During the term we will practice counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.  We will practice writing numerals correctly.

The Night Pirates - Role play

We have been designing necklaces using art straws.  After we had made them, we thought about what we had done well and how we could improve them.
