Year 1

Welcome to Term 1!
We have made a great start to the year and are already working very hard.
In English, we are investigating a book called “Handa’s Surprise” and will be exploring words that represent people, places and things (nouns); words that describe happenings (adjectives) and details such as when, where and how (adverbs).  We’ll also be learning how to make personal connections with books and discuss our feelings about texts.  Students will investigate the features of plot, character and the settings of books.
Our big focus for Maths is on numbers to 100 using number lines, 100’s charts and tens frames.  We will also be learning to count forwards and backwards.
Animals and their habitats are our area of study for Science.  We’ll be investigating our school yard and local community to discover the many different habitats these areas offer animals.
In History, we’ll be learning how to discuss time through the words “past, present and future”.  We’ll learn how everyday life has changed from the past.
The Arts will see us learn a variety of different dance types and we will be creating our own dance to express an emotion.
We’ll explore how plants and animals are grown for food, clothing and shelter and how food is selected and prepared for healthy eating in Technology.
Have a great Term 1!
