In Year 1 this half term we kick started our topic ‘From Farm to Fork’ with an exciting day exploring the weird and wonderful world of inventions, linked to Willy Wonka’s Invention Room (see photos below).


We have covered a range of curriculum areas, including science (looking at ourselves as humans, our needs and the senses, the different animal groups and their diet), ICT (e-safety and coding) and D.T (designing and constructing a machine with a winding mechanism to be used in a factory).


In Literacy we have read extracts from ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ by Roald Dahl and used these as inspiration for a descriptive piece of writing about our own invention room. As a class we also discussed/debated orally whether we would rather live without our sight or our hearing. We also continued to build on our knowledge of phonics by focusing on the following phase 5 sounds: ay, ou, ie, ea, oy, ir, ue, aw, wh, ph.


In Maths we recapped and extended our knowledge of number and place value, with a particular focus on 2 digit numbers  and then moved onto learning about 2D shapes and their properties, time (days of the week and months of the year) and measuring volume/capacity.


Welcome back Butterflies and Frogs!


We hope you all had a lovely half term break and are ready to learn!

This half term we will be continuing with our ‘From Farm to Fork’ topic.

We will be covering a range of curriculum areas, including science (animal offspring and how they grow, the parts of plants and how they grow), geography (the farming industry, how food gets on our plates and where it comes from using maps), ICT (e-safety and filming a recipe), art (printing with food and drawing sketches of food items) and D.T (exploring where food comes from and creating a dish using ingredients from around the world).


We are also hoping to visit a local supermarket for a behind the scenes tour to help further our understanding of where the food we eat comes from and how it arrives on our plate (more details to follow).


In Literacy we will be reading a selection of traditional tales and will use the tale ‘The Three Little Pigs’ as inspiration for our writing. This will include writing an alternative ending to the story and an explanation text to explain how the wolf got in to the brick house. We will also be writing humorous poetry about food. Throughout the half term we will also continue to build on our knowledge of phonics by focusing on the remaining phase 5 sounds.


In Maths we will start by recapping and extending our knowledge of time by learning how to tell the time on analogue clocks and will then move onto learning about 3D shapes and their properties, money, including addition and subtraction of amounts and finally measuring weight/mass.


Please continue to read with your child as much as you can and to complete their weekly home learning tasks. If you have any questions about these please don’t hesitate to come and ask us.
