Welcome to Cedar Class (Year 1)

Our Project this term

This term our project question will be : How has Warrington changed? As part of this project we will be becoming historians, discovering Warrington's past using skills such as enquiry and chronology.  Our project will begin with what we already know about Warrington and generating our own questions. We will be making our own models of buildings we’re familiar with around Warrington. We will then be looking at places in Warrington from the past and how they changed over the years.  We will be looking at how transport has changed in Warrington over time and what transport we use now. We will also being going on a trip to Warrington museum looking at toys from past On this day we will also be going into Warrington town centre to look at the buildings around Warrington and compare them to how they looked in the past. Our famous person from Warrington will be Brian Bevan and his journey to Warrington Wolves.


Everyday in Cedar Class........

4 A Day Maths

Every morning the children will working on their maths challenges, helping them to develop number fluency. We will be practicing counting to 30 forwards and backwards. We will also be looking at number bonds and exploring the different ways we can make the same number. It is important that the children work on their maths challenges at home in order for them to become confident and fluent with addition and subtraction with numbers beyond ten. 

Phonics and Talk for Writing

WThe children will be continuing with the Read Write Inc program which we started in Ash class providing us with lots of reading and writing opportunities. They will be looking at more complex sounds containing 2/3/4 letters helping us to read more books independently and fluently. We will also be taking part in whole class Talk For Talking where we will have the opportunity to explore a range of books including the story of Little Red Hen.


The children will also be taking part in whole class Talk For Writing where they will have the opportunity to explore a range of books. From these stories the children will be exploring how to write  recounts, instructions and reports. This  half term we will be looking at the story of Little Red Hen and The Three Little Pigs. The children will get to explore different texts through drama, role play, making story maps and recreating our own versions of stories which are familiar to us. 

Handwriting and Spelling

In year 1 we do handwriting everyday. This a very calming part of our day which we carry out after lunch. We learn how each letter is formed and gradually move onto cursive handwriting getting us ready for year 2. 

We also have spellings which we recieve every friday. These are words that we must learn how to spell by the end of year 1. We are tested on these every Wednesday. 


Please continue with reading with your child at home and record this in their Reading Champion book.  For every 10 occasions your child reads at home, this is recorded in their reading champion’s book and they will receive a certificate and a special mention in the school newsletter.
