Year 1 2018-19

Welcome to Year 1!

 

Our Summer 1 theme is 'The Great outdoors.' With science being the main focus, children will identify and name a range of everyday materials, including glass, metal, water and rock. They will sort and group them according to their differing properties. They will use scientific vocabulary such as shiny, waterproof, smooth,  to describe objects and materials. 

In geography, we will identify seasonal and daily weather patterns in the U.K. We will keep a weather chart and answer questions about the weather. We will use maps and aerial photos to look at our school and the local area, learning to recognise simple features such as buildings, roads and fields.  

Design and Technology will Iink to the outdoors too. We will explore stability and strength when researching,  designing and making our own slides. 

In English we will read and write our own versions of stories with familiar settings, adding our own different characters, events or settings. We will create information leaflets about our school grounds and its local area and explore the themes and language patterns of a range of poetry. 

We will continue to develop our mathematical skills and understanding. Our topics this half-term are multiplication and division, fractions and place value up to 100. 

P.E will be gymnastics and simple orienteering.

 

For more information on what we will cover this half-term, please see the medium-term plan at the bottom of this page.
