Year 1 2019 / 20

Welcome to the new Year 1 page for this academic year! Year 1 is an exciting year as the children embark on their personal key stage one learning journeys. The children will take part in a range of creative and imaginative activities, providing them with memorable experiences and instilling their desire to learn.

Our topic-based curriculum enables children to enhance their knowledge, understanding, skills and express their learning in practical, verbal and written ways. The children will be encouraged to fulfil their capabilities in each subject completing extra challenges to extend their learning. This year for the autumn term, we have kick started our learning with the topic, ‘Paws, Claws and Whiskers’.

Do you fancy a trip of a lifetime in the Year One classroom visiting lions in the grasslands, the coolest penguins in the polar regions or cheeky monkeys in the jungle? You would be bananas not to love it!

There will be collective visits from a pet therapy dog and a veterinary professional which capture the children’s engagement with the topic, immersing them in practical experiences which will bring learning to life. The children will also be investigating animal habitats and adaptations focusing on geographical regions. As a team, Year 1 have built a real-life safari car decorated using different animal prints to encourage role play and a love of learning.

In preparation for the Christmas production the children will be collaborating with Year 2. Watch this space to discover the surprise production title!

When the Year 1 children return to school in January, we will become astronauts jetting off into outer space with our topic ‘Moon Zoom’.  The children will be faced with the problem of investigating the mysterious crash landing of an alien who will have invaded the classroom! Research will be undertaken into the life-changing historical achievement of Neil Armstrong’s moon landing as well as studying the Solar System. The children will be provided with opportunities to express themselves through model making of planets, alien spaceships and rockets. It is going to be out of this world!
