Year 1

Year 1

Welcome to Year 1.

All our English work and Reading work link to our class texts that allow us to take a cross curricular approach to our learning. Some of the texts we enjoy in Year 1 include: Aliens in Underpants Save the World, The Tiger Who Came to Tea, Chicken Licken, Old Bear and Paddington at the Palace. Children will learn to apply their phonetic ability to their writing across a range of genres whilst having the opportunity to orally compose and rehearse their work. In maths, children will learn their numbers to 100, become secure with their number bonds, recognise and name 2D and 3D shapes and become familiar with their 2, 5 and 10-times tables. Children will also continue to strengthen their reasoning skills as they apply maths to real life problems and investigations.

During the Autumn term children will enjoy the topics 'Moon Zoom' where they will learn about the solar system and 'Paws, Claws and Whiskers' where they will explore classifying animals and locating animals from around the world.

In the Spring term children will learn about weather and the seasons through the topic of 'Splendid Skies.' They will explore the stages of human life and how things change over time through the topic 'Childhood.'

In the Summer term at St Paul's, children will be spending time exploring the history of our school and local area through our topic 'School Days.' Their final topic before they move into Year Two is 'Bright Lights, Big City.' Children will be exploring different countries and capital cities.

Year 1 staff are Miss Hewitt, Mrs Dacre and Mrs Barker.
