Year 1: Aqua and Sapphire

Year 1


In Year 1 this term, the Power of Reading book will be ‘The Three Little Pigs’. It is a wonderful fairy-tale about three pigs who build three houses of different materials, which links to the Year 1 Science studies on materials.


In English, pupils will be learning to sequence by putting events in order. Stories often have a beginning, middle and an end and pupils will be looking at how they can recognise this. Pupils will also begin to look at descriptive language, linking to the focus book ‘The Three Little Pigs’.


In Maths, Year 1 will be learning about subtraction and the different methods that can be used to find the answer to a calculation. Pupils will continue to use pictorial representations and a range of resources to support their learning of this concept. Year 1 will also be looking at height and length by comparing, describing and solving practical problems.


In Science, pupils will be working scientifically to identify, describe and classify materials. They will begin to identify the properties of various materials and will use investigations to test those properties.


In Geography, Year 1 will name and locate the four countries and capital cities of the UK and its surrounding seas. They will also be exploring the difference between human and physical Geography, paying particular attention to the local area.


Throughout their learning journey in Design and Technology, pupils will sketch, plan and design a dolls house they will make, including planning for the appropriate use of materials that they have learned about in Science to meet design criteria.


PE will be every Monday afternoon please ensure your child arrives at school in the appropriate kit and we advise all uniform items should be labelled with your child’s name and class.


Year 1 are looking forward to another outstanding half term in Year 1.
