My name is Mrs Millington and I teach Year 1. Working alongside me is Mrs Eadie who is a teaching assistant with a love for music.
Our first half term in Year 1
Welcome to Year 1! I hope you have had a lovely Summer holiday and are excited about your brand new year at Mobberley school. During our first half-term our topic will be ‘Memory Box’ where we will look at changes within living memory. We will investigate how toys have changed over time and will be listening to the memories of our parents and grandparents and playing with their favourite toys. In Science we will be looking at Seasonal Changes and trying to spot signs of Autumn in our local area. Then we will be investigating materials and carrying out an experiment to see which materials are waterproof. In Art we will be drawing portraits in the style of Pablo Picasso, Paul Klee and Andy Warhol. In RE we will be celebrating Harvest and looking at the Creation story. In outdoor and indoor PE, we will be practising our ball skills as well as our balancing skills. We will start to learn French for the first time, learning greetings and moving on to colours and numbers. We will enjoy music with Mrs Eadie, practising our singing as well as our listening and appraising skills. In English we will use books such as ‘Peace at Last’ and other stories with familiar settings to help us write sentences with capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. We will be applying our phonic knowledge to our reading and writing, moving on to consonant blends and Phase 5 sounds. In Maths we will get to grips with basic number work, using part-whole models to help our understanding. We will be using the laptops in Computing, practising using the trackpad and keyboard. We will continue with our work on Global learning that we started in Reception, celebrating key dates such as the ‘Day of Democracy’ and the ‘Day for the Eradication of Poverty’ as well as continuing to explore the Sustainable Development Goals.
