In Year 1, the children access continuous provision daily. Continuous provision describes all of the different provision areas which are available for your children to use every day. Within each of these areas of provision, there are a core range of resources that children can use all of the time, throughout the whole year. The purpose of an effective continuous provision is to offer children a constant environment that is safe for them to explore whilst challenging their learning. It allows children the freedom to explore and become independent in making choices. In our continuous provision, the children can complete additional challenges, which link closely to what we are learning about in our vehicle or in other subjects. We call these additional tasks rainbow challenges. If children complete all 7 challenges in a week, they will receive a certificate on Friday.
In Literacy, we will be learning how to write letters. The children will be introduced to letters whilst learning the story 'Dear Greenpeace' by Simon James.
In Maths, the children will be learning all about the part whole model. The children will use the part whole model to help them solve addition and subtraction problems.
We will learn all about how to keep ourselves healthy and safe. We will explore the importance of sleep and how to eat healthily.
