Year 1 2023 - 2024

Mrs Greer

Hello and welcome to Year 1.


Your child has now entered an important stage of their primary school experience as they enter their first year of KS1.

In Year 1 we strive to make all children feel confident, independent and safe. 


Autumn Term

This term we will be looking at a plethora of reading books from Augustus' Smile to Beegu and the Gruffalo. These stories will enrich the children's imaginations and help us to create some amazing character and setting descriptions. Moving on through the term, we will be putting our phonetic skills to use through our instruction writing.

In Maths, we will be looking at Place Value within 10; addition and subtraction; grouping and geometry.

For Science, Year 1 will be investigating everyday materials and their properties. We will do some exciting experiments and make some interesting observations.

Our foundation subjects for this term will look at human and physical geography as well as significant individuals. 

As always, it is important to keep our bodies just as active as our minds and so for PE we will be focusing on developing our basic skills; sending and receving; dance and gymnastics. 


Spring Term

This term our English will focus on developing character and setting descriptions as well as writing non-chronological reports. We will continue our exciting reading with texts such as: Lost and Found, Poles Apart and The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch.

In Maths, we will continue to look at addition and subtraction within 10 as well as length and height.

In Science, we will observe the changes in the seasons and investigate Animals including Humans.

Our foundation subjects will continue to look at significant figures such as David Attenborough and our wider world.

Summer Term
