Year 1: Aqua and Sapphire

Year 1


This term in Year 1, our focus book will be ‘The Man on the Moon’. It is a story about keeping Earth clean and being responsible for the environment. The story makes comparisons between life on Earth and life in space and deals with the issues of how we can look after our planet and learn to live together harmoniously.


In Literacy, we will write for different purposes including explanation texts, adventure stories and persuasion texts. We will imagine what it is like to live in space and compare this to life on Earth using a range of literary skills.


In Numeracy, we will learn about measures including capacity, volume and mass. We will also focus on multiplication and division supported by our knowledge of addition and inverse operations. Additionally, we will use our knowledge of multiplication and division and apply these to problem solving in everyday contexts.


In Science, the focus will be on investigating and observing how everyday materials are recycled and how others cannot be recycled. We will focus on describing the physical properties of everyday materials and comparing the materials based on their properties.


In Humanities, we will look at important figures in History with a particular focus on The Wright brothers who initiated the first flight.  Pupils will learn about the key features of the first flight and how those important events led to the world’s first successful aeroplane.


PE will be every Monday afternoon and the children must have the appropriate kit. We advise all aspects of uniform to be labelled with your child’s name and class.


We look forward to an outstanding Summer term in Year 1.


We love School!
