Year 1

During Year 1, students explore the world around them. In Science, they explore living things, how light and sound are produced, how we can make physical changes to materials and changes we can see in the sky. In English, they explore how authors portray characters and innovate on familiar texts with repetitive patterns, as well as learning how to write poems, recounts, procedures and retells of familiar stories. They also develop their bank of sight words. In Maths, students work with numbers to at least 100. They begin to learn their addition and subtraction facts.
Year 1 students will study Digital Technologies in Term 2, with our Digital Technology Coach and their class teacher.
During 2016, our Year 1 students will take part in a number of special events, including the Easter Bonnet Parade, Early Years Celebration and Grandparents’ Day, as well as taking part in whole school events such as the Spell-a-thon, Art Show, Find the H.U.M.P and the H factor.
The planned excursion program for Year 1 includes a trip to Nudgee Beach Environmental Education Centre in Term 1 to learn about the observable features of living things and the habitats they live in, a visit by Big Bang Science in Term 2 to take part in hands-on science activities involving the production of light and sound and a visit to Old Petrie Town in Term 3 to learn about the past. In Term 4, Year 1 participate in our Learn to Swim program at the Redcliffe City Pool. Also during Term 2, Year 1 students will take part in an Out of the Box workshop here at school. More information about all these activities will be provided closer to the date.
The 2016 Year 1 curriculum documents are available for you to access. These include parent newsletters, information about excursions and parent information sessions, as well as English assessment tasks.
