Year 1 - Miss Gettings

Welcome to Miss Gettings' Year 1 Class


Autumn  2019 

Home Sweet Home


As mathematicians we will focus on place value and build on our knowledge of addition and subtraction. We will be exploring maths in real life contexts so we learn how maths is such a valuable tool in everything we do.

As readers we will be hearing a wide variety of stories every day and using some of these to support our English lessons.

As writers we will be using our knowledge of sentences and their structure to begin to write stories, reports and instructions.

As handwriters we will be practicing our letter formation.

As spellers we will focus on spelling most common words correctly.

As scientists we will investigate the properties and uses of everyday materials.

As historians we will be looking at homes over different periods of time.

As geographers we will learn about where we live and the different parts of our country.
