Welcome to Year 1


Our English topic will be focused around the book ‘Whatever Next’. Children will be looking at and exploring recounts and there will be huge focus on phonics throughout this half term.
Children will be travelling to space through storytelling.


During this half term we will be concentrating on number. We will first work on counting forwards and backwards from any given number and also look at place value. We will also continue to look our 2, 5 and 10 times tables. We will then apply our understanding in a real life context and develop our problem solving skills. We will then move onto number bonds to 20 using money, time and shape.


During science this half term we will be looking at animals. We will explore name and identify a variety of common animals from each classification; mammals, herbivores, carnivores and omnivores. We will identify characteristics of these animals to support the identification process.


This half term children will be exploring significant figures. Children will look at Neil Armstrong and the Wright brothers whilst comparing the affect the Wright Brothers had on Neil Armstrong and the impact their invention has made on the world today.
