Mill MeadPrimary SchoolLife is for learning; learning is for life

Year 1



Welcome to 1E and a brand new year! 

I do hope you have all had a fantastic summer holiday and are

 ready for the busy year ahead...


Our topic this term is 'Time Travelers’ and we will get a sense of events that have happened historically e.g. The Great Fire of London as well as a sense of our own historical time line. We are really looking forward to hearing from the children about their own significant historical events that we will add to our ‘class timeline’ throughout the term. We will share with you, via twitter, as it evolves over the term.


In English, we are going to be starting with understanding the use of labels and captions as a tool in books to help a reader gain even more information.  We will also link our Topic learning to English and create diary entries from our time travels.  As a whole school, we will also continue with our Talk4Writing approach, allowing us to become even more active and creative writers.


In Maths we will be following the Maths Essentials programme and will cover everything from number sense, place value, the four operations to measurement and shape. We will also use ‘reasoning and word problems’ to get us thinking! 


Our Science topic will be Humans and Animals. We will be investigating the human body and our senses, as well as the animal kingdom e.g. fish, birds, amphibians, reptiles and mammals.


This term, I am sure, will be fantastic and we as a team are looking forward to all the learning that the children will be doing. We look forward to see you at the forthcoming Harvest Assembly and EYFS/KS1 Nativity thereafter.


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


Please do keep checking back for updates, and follow us on Twitter. 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,
