Willow Class - Year 1
Spread your wings in Willow Class …
A warm welcome back to the new school year at Water Primary! We hope you have all had a wonderful summer break and are looking forward to the exciting year ahead.
Your class team includes Mrs. Edington as the Class Teacher, who is supported by Mr. Riley and Miss Ahmed as the Class Teaching Assistants.
In Maths this term we will be focusing on:
- Number and Place Value
- Addition and Subtraction
It would be beneficial for your child to practice their times tables, beginning with counting in steps of 2s, 5s and 10s then working towards using the multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. TT Rockstars is a great tool to support times table learning at home. More information on TT Rockstars will be sent home at the beginning of the Autumn Term.
In English, the children will work towards writing a narrative based on their own character who travels to a new planet and discovers an alien, inspired by the heart-warming story, ‘The Way Back Home.’ Following this, the children will study an information text about a ‘Mighty Oak Tree’ and create their own versions about the ‘Wonderful Willow Tree.’
