During the Autumn term, the Year 1 children will be looking at three texts: 'This is 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.

This is the Bear and the Scary Night

During the first week in Year 1 the children have read the story 'This is the Bear and the Scary Night' by Sarah Hayes. They have completed a story map and acted out the story using freeze frames. It was great fun and the children were fantastic at empathising with a character. 

Please see below for some photographs of our freeze frames...


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

The children have been looking at numbers from 0-50. We have counted forwards and backwards and represented the numbers using concrete resources. We have looked at the the numbers as numerals and some children have even looked at the numbers as words.


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

Are All Children's Lives Like Ours?

During the first week in Year 1 the children created their very own passports so they can travel around the world. Our first trip was to Spain to learn all about the Artist Joan Miro.

See below the children's flight to Spain.

We looked at a take off from Birmingham Airport and a landing in Spain and talked about the differences they could see. The children had a great time and can't wait to find out where they will be going next..

During our time in Spain the children have been learning all about the famous Artist, Joan Miro.
