Spring 1

Hello everyone and welcome back to Year 1! 

Myself and Mrs Shepherd are thrilled to begin our journey together this new year. What a busy and fun term we have planned!
We will be using this page to share important information, key events, links to websites and much more. 


If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to send me a dojo message, or by coming to see one of us at the end of the school day.


I am really looking forward to seeing the children thrive in their learning this half-term.

Mr Eliot

English: This is the book we are reading and focusing on.


We will be looking at place value as well as addition and subtraction within 20. We will then look at place value within 50.




In science this half term, we will be looking at animals including humans.



In computing, we will be learning to follow logical decision processing and forward planning to achieve a solution. We will be following algorithms to follow instructions.


In history, we will be looking at living memory and comparing adults talking about the past and how reliable is living memory? We will find answers to simple questions about the past from various sources of information. We shall also recognise the difference between the past and present in our own lives and use stories to encourage children to distinguish between fact and fiction.


In PE, our focus of learning is to re-cap jumping, in different directions at different speeds and different levels. Pupils will begin to understand the different reasons when, where and why we jump in different ways.


In PSHE, we will be exploring dreams and goals, what aspirations are and how to achieve goals and understanding the emotions that go with this.


In art, we will express our creative side by looking at printing and patterns.


In music, we will learn about rhythm and pulse and begin to recognise the basic style indicators of Blues.
