Welcome to a new academic year. This year you will become a more independent learner as you will begin to take more of an ownership of your learning and you will also be settling in to the National Curriculum.
Year 1 Learning
This year we will be covering a range of different topics to help you to build upon the skills that you have already learnt in Reception.
In Maths, you will be gaining a deeper understanding of the number system, using this to solve number problems with a focus on different number patterns. We will also be looking at 2D and 3D shapes, measure and increasing our knowledge of positional language.
In English, we will be continuing with Read Write Inc to ensure all children can read accurately and fluently. You will also be exposed to a range of exciting genres.
In Science, we will be focusing on seasons, plants and animals and materials.
In RE this year we focus on the life of Jesus Christ, looking closely at his miracles, his life before and after he died and also his continuing work today in the church. We will also be visiting a synagogue as part of our multi-faith work.
Year 1 Topics
Toys – Past and Present
You will explore the fun-filled world of toys! Discussing your favourite toys and comparing them to toys from that past thinking about how different they are to toys today.
Childhood Then and Now
In this topic, you will become historians and learn about childhood and how it has changed over time from toy crazes to schools to homes.
In the Spring term, we will be finding out about the remarkable life of Florence Nightingale, one of Britain’s most famous historical figures.
Finally in our last topic we will be looking at the life of Grace Darling, exploring the first railway and looking at seaside in the past. In geography we will be looking at human and physical features of the seaside.
