Year 1 Bulletin w/c 4th Nov

Posted on Updated on

Year 1 Bulletin


In Literacy we will start to explore the difference between fiction and non-fiction texts. We will begin by learning about the features of non-fiction books, e.g. contents page, glossary, photographs, captions and labels, and move on to investigate the purpose of different non-fiction texts.

You can help your child at home by showing them a non-fiction book such as a travel guide, newspaper article or information leaflet. Can they identify how it is different to one of their reading books?


In Maths we will begin to explore and use vocabulary such as equal to, greater than, more than and less than. We will be comparing groups of objects to help us with this, as well as learning how to say and write comparison sentences, e.g “Five is greater than three.”

We will also be consolidating our previous learning, by revisiting addition and subtraction, and practising the various strategies we have learnt to help us with different number problems.

Why not practise with your child at home, by adding and subtracting small groups of objects. Can your child identify which is more than?


We will begin our new topic of Celebrations this week, with a fantastic exploration into the Diwali celebration! We will start by hearing the story of Diwali, and then learn about all of the different ways that people celebrate around the world.

On Wednesday 7th November, please send your child into school wearing light / bright colours, to mark the beginning of our new learning on celebrations.


Please remember to bring a water bottle and hat to school everyday.
