Spring Term

The Year 1 team would like to wish you all a very happy New Year. We hope you all had a wonderful and safe Christmas break with your families. We are very sad about having to spend some time apart from you. Stay safe at home with your families. Try your hardest with the home learning we have provided to keep up the great progress you have already made in Year One!

Please share the following online stories with your children to help them understand COVID-19, support their well-being during this time and help them feel positive. 

 

Autumn Term 

The Year 1 team are excited to welcome back all of our pupils to the classroom. We have lots of exciting learning planned for the autumn term and we can't wait to get started!

 

This term our theme is 'Carnival of Animals'. Please find our curriculum overview and knowledge overviews below.

 

Year 1 have enjoyed learning the story of Handa's Surprise.

We have role played the story and enjoyed pretending to be the different characters.

We have been learning about adjectives and have created word banks to help us develop our writing. We even tasted the fruit from the story to help us improve our descriptions.

 

In geography, we have been learning to identify the seven continents and the five oceans. We can identify the animals that are native to each continent and ocean.

In history, we have been learning about fossils and the life of Mary Anning. We have some young paleontologists in the making! 

 

Seasonal Changes

We have been observing seasonal changes this autumn. What have you brought in for our nature table?
