During the Autumn term, Year 1 children will look at many different texts: The Bear and the Scary Night by Sarah Hayes, Lila and the Secret of Rain by David Conway and This Is How We Do It by Matt Lamothe.

During the first half term the children have been travelling the world with Barnaby Bear and describing the places that they have visited. When we looked at The Bear and The Scary Night, the children produced a retell of the book and then planned their own version of the story using their own characters from their imagination. 


Please see below knowledge organisers that show Maths learning throughout Year 1.

During the Autumn term, Year 1 children will be exploring many different areas of mathematics using their concrete and pictorial resources to explore each topic.

During the Autumn term the children will be exploring  place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, time, fractions and geometry.

The children will be counting from 0-100 as well as exploring our number bonds to 10. We will also be using our concrete and pictorial resources to learn our 2's, 5's and 10's.

Children will take part in 'Number Club' every week to test them on their number bonds knowledge.


During the Autumn term, the children will be answering the BIG Question...

Where in the world are we?

During this curriculum topic we will be learning all about the world around us.

We have started our curriculum focus by zooming in on where we live and looking at the United Kingdom. The children will start to zoom out on our world map and begin to compare our country to other countries that we will look at.


During Science in the Autumn term the children will be answering the question "Why do elephants have such big ears?"

Children will be looking at both humans and animals and comparing their similarities and differences. Children will be looking at a variety of animal groups and identifying the characteristics of those groups. Children will also be looking at a variety of animal diets and they will discover the 5 senses that each human has.
