Hi, my name is Mrs Williams and I am the Year 1 class teacher. In Year 1 we have lots of fun and learn lots of new things.
We are introducing The Literacy Tree curriculum to drive our topics this year.
In the Spring Term we really focus on our phonics and looking for those naughty alien words. They try to trick us out! This is to prepare us for our phonics test.
Spring Term 1:
This half term we use the book ‘Beegu’ by Alexis Deacon. This is all about an alien who finds himself lost on our planet.
As part of our art sessions we have been learning about sketching, drawing and painting Beegu. During our science sessions we have been learning about seasons, focusing on the Season, Spring. As part of our Geography lessons we have been learning about the 7 continents of the world, the 5 oceans and then focus on the country, United Kingdom. e. Our PE this half term is all about dance. In PSHE we will be learning about homes as part of our Thought Box curriculum.
Our second book of the half term is ‘The Odd Egg’ by Emily Gravett. This is about a duck who finds a peculiar egg.
As part of our science curriculum we will be learning about animals including humans, focusing on different animals. In Design Technology we will be designing and making our own papier Mache eggs. In RE we will be learning about the Easter.
This half term we use the book ‘Dinosaurs and all that Rubbish’ by Michael Foreman. This is about a dinosaur and recycling.
As part of our science curriculum we will be learning about materials. We will then be using this knowledge in our Design Technology sessions to design something for our playground. In PSHE we will be learning about Habitats, looking at who lives where.
Our second book of the half term is ‘Stanley’s Stick’ by Neal Layton. It is about a little boy who uses his imagination to take him anywhere.
In our science sessions we will be looking at seasons, focusing on Summer. We will then look at our work from the year and compare all the seasons. In art we will be looking at using nature to create pictures. In RE we will be looking at the religion, Judaism.
