Year 1: Aqua and Sapphire

Year 1


In Year 1 this term, the pupils will be focusing on the ‘One Day, On Our Blue Planet’ by Ella Bailey. It is an amazing story about a little lion cub who cannot stay out of trouble. This story is linked to our overarching topic of the term ‘animals’. The pupils will also be learning about Sir David Attenborough and the things he does to help our planet and the animals on it.


In English, the pupils will be learning about using capital letters for days of the week, people, places and I. The pupils will be looking at the different between proper and improper nouns.


In maths, the pupils will be learning about telling the time. They will be looking at identifying O’clock and half past the hour. The pupils will be exploring what the different hands on the clock mean and then draw the hands on a clock to show a specific time.

In science, pupils will be able to describe and compare different animals and then create a non-chronological report about some different animals. The pupils will also be learning how to identify and name carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.


The pupils will be learning about Zimbabwe in their Geography lessons. They will be learning to identify and compare the human and physical features of Zimbabwe and Feltham.


In Music, the pupils will be learning how to experiment with sounds and match sounds to stories. The pupils will then be able to perform a soundscape to match a story being read.


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


We look forward to an exciting summer term in Year 1
