Year 1 Autumn Term Overview

Year 1 are settling into their new classes really well.

In English, we are practising pre-cursive letter formation and developing our sentence structure. We will be exploring and creating our own ‘predictable phrase’ stories and writing recounts. We will also be exploring the use of language in poetry.

In Maths we will be counting, reading, writing and understanding number. We will be using many manipulatives to embed our understanding. We will also be learning how to set out, present and write number sentences.

In Science we will be learning about weather and the seasons. Later on we will be focusing on animals including humans and we will learn to group animals by their different characteristics.

In Computing we will be learning some basic computer skills such as how to use the laptops safely, how to log on and how to use a keyboard and mouse.

Our theme this term is called ‘Let’s Remember’. In our theme we will be exploring our local war memorial and investigating how and why we remember those who fought in the wars. We will also use our art skills to make our own remembrance poppies.

In RE we are exploring how individuals and different religious communities are thankful. Each religion is thankful during these autumn winter months therefore the children will learn how each religion celebrates these seasons.

In PE we are developing different ways to move with our bodies through dance. Using different media such as ribbons, sound and stories to encourage different types of movements.
