In Year 1 we will be doing lots of exciting things in a physical, auditory and visual way, developing our reading, writing and maths skills with the help of some fun and catchy songs.
Just as the children did in EYFS, we will continue with English – reading, writing and phonics. We will do Maths. We will also have weekly lessons in Science, PE, RE, ICT, as well as lessons in Art, Design Technology, History and Geography. In Year 1 we follow the National Curriculum.
This Term, in English, we will look at the fabulous story of ‘Jack and the Flum Flum Tree’ by Julia Donaldson at the start of the year, where Jack has to cure his sick Granny by going on a journey with some useful objects in a patchwork sack. More English work will use the story of ‘The Naughty Bus’ – where a red toy London bus has some incredible adventures – we will never look at baked beans the same again! We will also look at the story ‘Cave Baby’ set in the Stone Age and incredible ancient paintings surround the little baby in the cave that is his home.
