Firecrests Year 1

Welcome to Year 1 Firecrests.

Meet the Staff

Welcome to Year 1.

In this year we continue our school journey from Reception. We will be learning many new skills and developing our knowledge of different subjects. We began the year learning about childhood in History, and what life was like for children of the past. We looked at senses and everyday materials in Science and have looked at some fantastic books, such as Puffin Pete, Stanley's Stick and Mr Big in English.

In Maths, we began with numbers to ten and then twenty, looking at different ways to make numbers and add and subtract them.

This term we continue with more great books that will develop our writing skills and we will look at tens and ones and place value. In Science we will be studying the seasons and we continue our Geography journey learning about London.

We look forward to sharing all the wonderful things we do with you.
