Spring Term – Breaking Boundaries!
Our Spring term theme is ‘Breaking Boundaries!’ where we will be looking at facing new challenges, developing resilience and exploring differences and similarities that we all share. We will be using our inspirational text to explore and develop our understanding of these aspects we face as we enter a new chapter in our learning journey at Gorsey Bank.
This will give us fantastic opportunities to develop cross curricular links with other subject areas in particular Maths where we will be developing our number skills using a wide range of manipulatives to help with our counting; English through exploring the picture story of The Lion and the Mouse as well as building on our descriptive writing skills, Science where we will explore Animals and go on a class visit to support our scientific learning. Our text this term enables us to develop our geography skills using atlases and much, much more within the Foundation subjects.
Year 1 Information
This year we will visit the school library on a Tuesday morning – please remember to have your library book on this day. We are timetabled to have PE every Tuesday morning and Thursday afternoon but please have both your indoor and outdoor PE kit in school every day as plans may change! School reading books will be changed weekly during our guided reading sessions.
