Year 1 Miss Toner

Welcome to Year 1!


In English we are following the RML reading scheme.  We are working hard to learn all our sounds to help us with our reading and writing.  We love using our Fred fingers to help us sound out words.  Remember to use Fred fingers and Fred talk when learning any new word.



We are trying hard to learn by heart our number bonds to 10.  We will also be focusing on counting in twos, fives and tens.  We know that basic number skills will help us develop our understanding and enable us to apply it when solving number problems.  Always remember to practise forming numbers correctly.



We have been learning about different plants.  We know that some are wild and some grow in the garden.  We also know that plants need warmth, sunlight and water to grow.  We have been observing different types of trees.  We found out that they may be deciduous or evergreen.
