Year 1 Dash

Welcome to Year1 Dash. Your teacher is Miss Walkey and your teaching assistant is Miss Tunley. 

Our Challenge!

To create a magical environment for Winnie's Halloween party. 


In English we will be combining words to make sentences and using adjectives and verbs to describe characters. We will also be looking at different settings.

We will be retelling short stories both in verbally and written forms.

Children will also be using the Read Write Inc program for phonics every day.

You can support your child’s learning by reading regularly and discussing the stories that they are reading. Please encourage your child to share their ideas and discuss the story plot. 


In Maths we will be reading and writing numbers, counting, ordering numbers, adding and subtracting. We encourage the children to use equipment to help them, such as number lines, cubes, objects, dice, number cards and numicon. 

You can help your child by recognising numbers in your local area such as house numbers, car registrations and when out shopping. You could also begin to learn number pairs to 10 for example 8 + 2 = 10, 4 + 6 = 10.


In Science we will be looking at materials and which will be best for building houses for Winnie's friends. 


We will be relating the work in other curriculum areas such as art, DT  history, geography, ICT, and PSHE to the book we are focussing on. 

PE/Forest School/Swimming

On Tuesday the children will be accessing the forest school area. They will need outdoor clothing and outdoor shoes or wellies.  Also the children will need their PE kits in school for Tuesdays. Swimming will be on Thursdays with a £1 cost.
