Year 1 2018-19

Welcome to Year 1!


Our Summer 2 theme is 'Robots.' We will read and write robot-themed stories and poems, paying particular attention to description and language patterns. The children will create and perform robotic dances and use paint packages in computing to design on-screen robots. They will use explore the use of different colours, brushes and shapes.  

In Design and Technology we will research, design and then make our own robots with simple levers. We will continue to develop our mathematical skills and understanding. Our topics this half-term are fractions, place value up to 100, position and direction and money.

P.E will be dance and outdoor athletics.


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

We enjoyed our senses scavenger hunt. We looked for objects that were noisy, scented and certain shapes and colours. We also used our sense of touch to see which objects were soft, hard, smooth and rough.
