Year 1 Curriculum


Welcome to Class 1MB

At the beginning of this term we enjoyed our school trip to Far Ings Nature reserve in Barton upon Humber. We will be basing a lot of our work this term relating to the activities the children carried out eg: pond life, minibeast hunt and wildlife conservation. Minibeasts

In Literacy this term, we will be enjoying the book ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carl’. We will also be enjoying non-fiction relating to minibeasts/life cycles and pond life. We will be going into more detail with punctuation eg: question marks, speech marks, speech bubbles and exclamation marks. We will also be including adjectives and nouns to our wring and encouraging the children to read for enjoyment.

We will be continuing with Read, Write, Inc sessions assisting the children with their phonic knowledge and preparing them for their Phonics screening test in June.

In numeracy we will be concentrating on knowing and using numbers to 100.  We will be using Numicon to assist this in games and activities.  We will be especially looking at 2,5 and 10 times tables and missing number sentences. 

In RE we will be starting our new topic on Holidays and Holy days and reflecting on the importance of Pentecost and the Easter story.

In design technology we will be mastering practical skills  using different tools to cut materials safely and exploring and evaluating designs.

In history we will be investigating the past. We will be looking at famous heroes, especially Florence Nightingale.

In geography we will be communicating geographically. We will be encouraging the children to use basic geographical vocab to refer to physical features and key human features.

In our music lessons we will be creating a sequence of long and short sounds with the music support teacher Mrs. Brealy.

In indoor P.E we will be focussing on dance and movement and Miss Emma will be encouraging the children to copy and remember moves and positions with careful control and coordination.
