During the Summer term, Year 1 children will look at two texts: 'Lost in the Toy Museum' by David Lucas and 'Tilly and the Time Machine' by Adrian Edmondson.

Lost in the Toy Museum...

During the first half term the children will be writing a first person narrative based on the character Bunting from 'Lost in the Toy Museum.' Then they will be learning how to write an informative report on the different types of toys you would find in a museum.

World Book Week

The children were really excited during our world book week. The children dressed up as their favourite character and they enjoyed writing an alternative story to the three little pigs.


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

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

During the Summer term the children will be exploring  money, place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, measurement, time and shape.

The children will be counting from 0-100 as well as adding one-digit and two-digit numbers together. We have also been using concrete resources to learn our 2, 5 and 10 times tables.

Children take part in 'Number Club' every week to test them on their times table knowledge.


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

What was life like before technology?

During this curriculum topic we will be learning all about what life was like before technology.

We started our topic with a trip to the 'Black Country Museum.'

Click below to see a video of our trip travelling back in time :)

We will also be learning about George Stephenson who invented the first steam train, Alexander Graham Bell who invented the telephone and the Write brothers who revolutionised flight.

As well as this the children will be looking at the Victorian times including Victorian holidays.

The Queen's Jubilee

We have been celebrating the Queen's Jubilee and have created a whole school tapestry.

The children will also be singing songs through the decades whilst the Queen has been on the throne.

Year 1 have been given the 1950's and we have been learning Get Happy by Judy Garland.


During Science in the Summer term the children will be answering the question "Why are Plants Important?" 

Children will be planting their own seeds and watching the grow. We will also be learning about what is important for plants to grow healthily.
