Year 1 (2021-22)

Welcome to the Summer Term in Year 1 at Bollinbrook School!

Hopefully you all had a super Easter break and you have come back bright eyed and bushy tailed, ready for more learning before the end of the year.

In English, in our Literacy Counts sessions we will be using 2 stories to help us develop our reading and writing skills – ‘The Secret of Black Rock’ and ‘The Last Wolf.’ We will learn about writing different genres of writing including a return story, postcards, a hunting story and recipes.

In maths we will learn about fractions, making halves and quarters, position and direction, place value to 100, recognising coins and money, and learning how to tell the time.

In RE we will look at aspects of Christianity – being a Disciple, the Holy Spirit, Creation and an introduction to Judaism.

In Science we will learn all about plants. We will be integrating out Science learning with our work in Forest School.

In History we will learn about a famous individual who was alive beyond our living memory, Florence Nightingale.

In Geography we will learn about Hot and Cold places around the world.

In DT we will be using our skills in food technology, preparing and cooking foods like pasta salad.

In Art we will explore textures and landscapes, making pictures with a horizon line.

In Music we will learn about Superheroes.

In PE we will develop our skills in striking and fielding games, and scoring in net and wall games.

In Computing, we will learn about programming a robot and beginning animation.
