Year 1: Aqua and Sapphire

Year 1


In Year 1 this term our focus book will be ‘The Lonely Beast’. It is a wonderful story about a beast who loves to bake and look after his beautiful garden - the only downside is that he lives by himself and that he is very lonely. In the story he goes on a marvellous adventure to find new friends!


In Literacy, pupils will write for different purposes to tell stories, create poems and diary entries; this will all be based around the story from our Power of Reading book!


Pupils will continue to work on using ‘and’ in their writing and to develop their use of different suffixes. They will also be starting to include more interesting descriptive language in their work, looking at how our Power of Reading book does this for inspiration.


In Numeracy, pupils will learn about weight to help the Lonely Beast with his baking. Year 1 will also learn about positional language which will help to make a map showing the Beast’s journey as he travels through the book. They will also learn how to tell the time!


In Science, Year 1 will continue to work scientifically to identify various different plants and look at their different features! In addition, pupils will learn what a plant needs to grow and discover what deciduous and evergreen trees are too!


In Humanities, pupils will study Geography with a particular focus on mountains and rivers. They will learn about the different parts of a river and a mountain including how geographical language should be used for clarity.


PE takes place every Monday afternoon and all pupils must have the appropriate kit; we advise parents and carers that all aspects of uniform should be labelled with your child’s name and class.


We look forward to another wonderful half term in Year 1!
