Year 1


Welcome to Year 1!

Mrs Gatward and Mrs Hands' class


We hope you enjoyed your break and are feeling refreshed and ready to begin the summer term in Year One!  On this page you'll find information about our class and our learning.  We hope to provide you with some handy information and links along the way too.  


We have an exciting term ahead of us with our new topic ‘On Safari’ which will continue throughout the whole of the Summer Term. As before, where possible, all subjects will be linked around this theme.

In English we will learn about repetitive stories, non-chronological reports and poems using the senses.  In Maths we will cover the four operations and introduce work on money, fractions, time and position and direction.  In History, we will compare now and the past and look at significant events such as the first aeroplane flight. In Geography we will look at geographic similarities and differences, locate hot and cold areas of the world and use basic geographical vocabulary to refer to key human and physical features. In art, we will look at traditional African prints and crafts, create our own print designs, repeating patterns and woven textiles. We will find out about different African foods and learn the importance of hygiene when handling food in D.T.  In Science we will learn about animals including humans.  In Computing we will learn how to use the internet for research alongside the ongoing importance of e-safety and control and programming.

Please hand homework in by Monday so that we can return books back to you as soon as possible. For each piece of homework you complete, you will receive a house point! 




 If you need to get in touch with us please feel free to do so either in person or via the school office.

Thank you,

Mrs Gatward and Mrs Hands
