Year 1


Today year 1 visited B & Q to continue our learning about plants. We met a lovely lady called Sarah who was able to talk to us all about the types of plants we could find in store, how to care for plants and year round potting. We then went on to the Abbey ruins gardens to continue our search for wild and garden plants. We enjoyed ice poles by the park and had lots of fun during our picnic.


Thank you year 1 for a fantastic day!

Today we started our new Power of reading focus-(book yet to be revealed, shh!) The children began looking at different types of eggs and sharing what we already know about eggs. We then sketched the eggs looking closely at their features, size and any detail we could see. 

Looking at eggs!


This week in year 1 we have been learning how to partition numbers into tens and ones. We used the part-part whole model and dienes cubes to help us in our working out.

Autumn term 2

We have come to the end ouf Autumn term 2 and what a fantastic term we have had! Year 1 have been able to recognise and name common 2D and 3D shapes such as square, rectangles, cubes, pyramids etc. Year 1 now know what proper nouns are and that the special names for people, places, days of the week and months of the year must begin with a capital letter.


In year 1 we have been reading and enjoying the story Beegu which has been our focus text for the term.

In Year 1 this year we will be learning lots and having fun. During the Autumn Term we will be learning about ourselves in science, naming basic body parts and learning about our five senses. 


Our Power of Reading text for this half term will be Traction Man. We will have lots of fun reading about the adventures of Traction Man, designing a new suit for Traction Man and retelling parts of the story.


In maths we will be forming numbers 0 - 20 correctly using lots of exciting materials to support us in our learning, we will learn to identify and represent numbers using

objects and pictorial representations including the number line, and be able to use the

language of: equal to, more than, less than (fewer), most, least.



This year we will be learning how to write in cursive handwriting, forming our letters correcting starting and finishing in the right place.
