Year 1 (Elstar) 2020 - 2021

Mrs Bhamra

Hello, and welcome to Elstar Class!!

Myself and Mrs. Rehinsi are extremely excited to work with Elstar class this year, and am sure it will be an amazing year of fun and learning!!


This year in literacy we will be developing the literary skills learned in early years and applying to specific types of texts, as well as looking at specific features of each of these texts in terms of structure, language, and vocabulary. As well as this, children will have daily phonics and SPaG lessons, in addition to guided reading sessions to develop the children’s reading and comprehension which is a key factor in developing and improving their written and spoke English.


This year in maths, we will be consolidating knowledge around numbers from early years and applying them in a range of calculations, particularly using physical aides to help work out maths problems. This will be taught through the whole school maths scheme: Power Maths.  Children will record their work in the workbooks, along with using the maths books.


During this year in science, we will be looking at a range of subjects including; plants, animals including humans, everyday materials, and seasonal changes. We will be also be working scientifically by performing simple tests to explore questions.


In computing, we will be exploring basic programming and internet safety, which are key aspects of life in current times.

General reminders:

  • Homework will set on a Friday to be handed back in on the following Wednesday
  • Reading books will be changed on Mondays and Fridays to adhere to the school’s risk assessment.
