Year 1 Children
  • Welcome to Monnow Class

  • Autumn Term

    This term our class topic is ‘Heroes and Heroines’.


    We will be using the ‘Talk for Writing’ approach one approach to develop our skills as writers. Through a range of activities, particularly focusing on the importance of talk and retelling, the children will enhance their creative and descriptive skills.  Phonics and reading will be a daily focus.  We will also be looking at basic skills, such as: letter formation, sentence structure and basic punctuation. 



    As Mathematicians the children will be working on developing mastery skills in the following areas:

    • –  Number and Place Value

    • –  Addition and Subtraction

    • –  Multiplication and Division

    • –  Measurement: Length, Mass, Money, Time, Capacity and Volume

    • –  Geometry and Position and Direction


    As Scientists we will focus on animals including humans and how amazing we are.  We will think about what we were like as a baby, how we have changed and how we grow. We will also learn about the five senses which allow us to find out about the world.  We will discuss how superheroes might use these senses e.g. x-ray vision, super hearing! We will be investigating how to keep healthy and foods which give us energy and help us stay fit and strong.



    The children will be learning to log on to the computer by using their own username and password and how to save a piece ofwork into a folder and how to retrieve it. They will be taught e-safety regularly to understand how to keep safe online. Thechildren will be introduced to using the school IPads and our school routines and expectations.

    Reading continues to be a priority in Year 1. We ask that you read with your child daily for up to 20 minutes and record what they have read in their Reading Records. Children should read aloud to an adult, tackling any unknown words by carefully sounding out and then blending the sound together. We will change books on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please continue to share books with your children, talking about the stories and asking questions to help develop their comprehension skills.
