Year 1

Welcome to Year One!



Class 4 - Miss Turner, Mrs Vinters and Miss Ranyard 


Class 3 - Mrs Cottam, Mrs Denby, Miss Elsom and Miss Marsh 


Term 6 PE Day for Year 1 is a WEDNESDAY

Our Key Question this term is:

What is special about the seasons?

In English this term we are continuing to work on our sea creature non-fiction text. We will plan our own innovated version of ‘The beautiful blue whale’, adapting it to create our own report about a different sea creature. We will also read the story ‘No-Bot, the robot with no bottom’ and use this to inspire some of our writing. We are working on the consistent use of punctuation, conjunctions and adjectives in our writing, as well as making sure our writing makes sense and we have sounded out our words correctly.



This term we will begin by focusing on place value to 100. We will count forwards and backwards to 100, represent numbers to 100, compare numbers to 100 and order numbers to 100. We will also learn about simple fractions such as halves and begin to learn how to tell time to the hour and half hour.

Our KIRF this term is to be able to find doubles and halves of numbers to 10, so we will be busy practising those as well.



In Science we are learning about trees. We will learn about the difference between deciduous and evergreen trees, the names of different trees as well as how to classify trees in different ways.
