Mars Class - Year 1

.Welcome to our Class page

This Autumn, our theme is ‘Toys-Why do we play with different toys as we grow older?’

During this unit, we will be exploring  changes in living memory and thinking about how we have grown from babies. We will learn to name body parts, understanding their purpose and how we can keep our growing bodies healthy.  We will look at toys from the past and compare them with toys we play with today, looking for both similarities and differences.

In RE we will be looking at  Christianity. We will be listening to faith stories to help us understand what God is like and what Christians believe.


 Our Maths learning focus

We will develop our knowledge and understanding of place value and addition and subtraction within 10. We will count, read and write numbers to 10 in numerals and words.  We will represent numbers using objects  and pictorial representations . We will read, write and interpret mathematical statements involving +, - and = signs.

 Our English learning focus

We will be exploring our class book, ’Toys in Space’ by  Mini Grey, focusing on developing constructing and writing sentences using capital letters, fingers spaces and full stops. We will also begin to use adjectives to describe nouns.

By the end of this Unit we will have written our own version of Toys in Space.
