Year 1

Welcome to the Autumn term in Year 1.

We have lots of exciting things planned for this term. These are just some of the things we will be learning about.

  • Materials in science
  • Creation in R.E.
  • Geography of our local area.
  • History of houses and homes.
  • We will be looking at portraits and Picasso in art.
  • Traditional tales including 'Goldilocks and the 3 Bears' and 'Cinderella'
  • Story writing linked to our traditional tales, in computing.

​​​​​​​We are going to be exploring our school grounds and the area around our school. We will be going on a walk to find things out.




In R.E. we are looking at 'Creation'. 

We have been creating our own pictures, using computers, paint, collage. We have created models using 

'Playdoh', 'Lego' and boxes.



We have been using our new 'Godly Play' objects, to look at what God created and discussed what he created in the beginning and the order of creation.






Year 1 is a really important time to get to grips with phonics. To be confident readers and writers, children need to be able to sound out words. For example, if we see the word 'wheel', we break it down into 'wh', ee, and l. Have a go at some of the free games on the 'Phonics play' website and keep talking, sounding out words! (Please note you will only have access to the free resources on 'Phonics Play' unless you subscribe at home. Children do not have a school login sorry.)
