Year 1

Welcome to Year 1 Class!


Spring Term 2018


Welcome to the Spring Term!


During the first half of this term our Science topic will be I’m Alive. We will be exploring things that are alive, things that used to be alive and things that have never been alive.

After half term, our topic will be Miniature Gardens which will involve looking at different plants and watching how they grow. We will also be planting our own plants.


In English, we will be starting the term with instruction writing. We will be learning why instructions are important and writing our own instructions to trap different creatures.

After half term we will then be looking at different fairy tales. We will be writing letters to different characters from the stories and also write our own versions of the stories.


In Maths, we will be continuing to develop our number fluency to 20. We will also be looking at addition and subtraction within 20. We will move onto doubling and halving, as well as looking at odd and even numbers. Later on in term, we will be looking at developing our number fluency to 100. We will also be learning about 2D and 3D shapes.


In RE, we will be looking at our own and others identities and thinking about what it means to belong to something. We will also be learning about Easter towards the end of the term.


In Child Initiated Learning, the children have the opportunity to show their learning through play and continue to build upon the strong foundations they developed whilst in the Early Years.


This term is an action packed term and I'm looking forward to all the learning that the children will be doing.


If you have any queries or questions please do not hesitate to catch me briefly after school, or make an appointment via the office.


Please do keep checking back for updates, and follow us on Twitter if you aren't yet doing so - this will give you an excellent insight to all of the learning that 1 Earth and the rest of the school get up to.


Kind Regards,


Mrs Hare and Miss Draper
