Welcome back to school everyone! I hope you enjoyed the summer holidays. I am so excited about working with you all this year. Here you will find the Long-term plan for Year 1 for 2021-22.  This gives a broad overview of the themes and topics covered in year and relates back to the National Curriculum.




Autumn Term Topic - Animals


This term our topic is 'Animals'. In Science, we will be learning about different animals and discover how to classify them based on their physical features, living conditions and diet. In Art, we will develop our sketching skills and learn about size, shape and texture in order to draw our favourite animals. In PSHE, we will discuss what keeps us healthy and happy.








In Year 1, we will begin to work through our fantastic Maths scheme - Maths No Problem! This term the children will be learning all about number and place value. Please help your child at home to recall the x1 and x10 tables

This term we are looking at lots of traditional tales and focusing on  Goldilocks and The Three Bears. We will also be learning how to write letters and learn some poetry.


In class we will be reading lots of stories such as:






  PE is on Wednesdays & Fridays so please send your child in wearing their full PE kit.


Please use Showbie to record your childs reading.  Try to read at least three times a week so that books can be changed regularly.
