Key Stage 1 Infants Mrs Lewis
Welcome to Mrs Lewis' Class Page.
In Mrs Lewis' class we learn lots of fun and important skills. We become even better writers, mathematicians and readers. We TAKE CARE in all we do including making sure we learn how to be wonderfully organised! :)
Please see below on what we cover in the year:
Maths – Below is a brief outline of the areas we will study in Key Stage 1 this year:
- Read and write two-digit and three-digit numbers in figures and words; describe and extend number sequences and recognise odd and even numbers
- Count up to 100 objects by grouping them and counting in tens, fives or twos; explain what each digit in a two-digit number represents, including numbers where 0 is a place holder; partition two-digit numbers in different ways, including multiples of 10 and 1
- Order two-digit numbers and position them on a number line; use the greater than and less than signs
- Estimate a number of objects; round two-digit numbers to the nearest 10

- Add or subtract mentally a one-digit number or a multiple of 10 to or from any two-digit number; use practical and informal written methods to add and subtract two-digit numbers

- PE is every Tuesday and Friday.

- Reading or Reciprocal Reading will take place every day with a group of children ensuring every child is heard reading once a week. During this time reading books for home will be changed. Please be understanding that we cannot change books daily as this will interrupt our very busy learning timetable. Phonics takes place every day ensuring reading, writing and spelling skills are being taught, practised and applied.
