In English we will continue to focus on retelling a story each week using the time adverbials; first, next, then, after that, finally. 

We will continue to make sure we use capital letters and full stops in our sentences and sit our letters on the line.

During the Spring term we will explore using 'and' to join words and use adjectives to describe size and colour. We will also look at writing diary entries based on some of the books below.

Black History Month

We have been learning about the life of and the achievements of Sir Lenny Henry during October.


In Maths we have been finding one more and one less than a number.

We have been using dienes to represent numbers to 50.

We are now working on adding and subtracting 1-digit numbers.

We have been counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.

Please refer to the sheet below for more information about how we teach Maths in Year 1.


We have started our History lessons based on The Great Fire of London.
