To make the experience of transition easier for the children, the Year 1 classes are run in a similar way to Reception, based on the Foundation Stage Principles with an emphasis on learning through play. As the year progresses and the children become more settled and mature we introduce more whole class teaching and independent group work.

|Learning Project - to be done throughout the week: My Family||
The project this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to gain a better understanding of their own family. Learning may focus on the different makeup of families, what traditions your family has, stories linked to your family etc. Please choose activities as you feel appropriate.
Create a card:
Design a personal coat of arms shield for the family:
Create a booklet all about the family:
What do they call them? What do they like or dislike? Why are they special to them?
Maybe they could get a photograph or draw a family member before they write about them.
News Reporter for half a day:
-Their challenge is to interview family members and find things they like and dislike? Can they write down things they like and dislike? Can they compare these to someone else in their family? In your interview they could create flashcards with words such as: colour, clothes, food, drinks, books, places, music and then ask a family member to pick a flash card and talk about their likes and dislikes.
Data detective Ask your child to look at people in the house. What colour is their hair ? Eye colour? Favourite colour? Favourite food? Ask them to collect this and place in a tally chart. https://www.twinkl.com.qa/resource/t2-m-250-favourite-colour-tally-and-bar-chart-worksheets
Interview a family member:
- interview a family member that doesn’t live at home with them. Allow your child to ask them about their childhood. Who did they live with? Who is in their family? Have they got any family traditions they follow and why.
