In Year 1 this half term we finished off our ‘From Farm to Fork’ topic with an exciting farmyard hoedown! The children all looked fantastic and really enjoyed our barn dance extravaganza!


We have covered a range of curriculum areas this half term, including science, where we investigated animals and their offspring and how they grow, geography, where we explored how food gets to our plates and where it comes from using maps, ICT, where we continued to learn about e-safety and how to film a recipe, art, where we printed with food and D.T, where we created a dish using ingredients from around the world (we hope you enjoyed tasting the pizzas the children made and thank you to everyone who sent in a donation).


We also took part in the school wide Science and Geography week where we focused on and took inspiration from the work of Sir David Attenborough. We carried out lots of investigative and exploratory type tasks linked with the world around us.


In Literacy we have read a wide selection of traditional tales, including those with an unexpected twist. We used the tale ‘The Three Little Pigs’ as inspiration for our writing. This included writing an alternative ending to the story. We also wrote humorous poetry about food. Throughout the half term we also continued to build on our knowledge of phonics by focusing on the remaining phase 5 sounds (ew, oe, au, ey, a_e, e_e, i_e, o_e, u_e).


In Maths we have recapped and extended our knowledge of time by learning how to tell the time on analogue clocks and then learnt to recognise British coins and use different combinations of them to make differing amounts. We have also applied this knowledge of money to solve problems involving addition and subtraction. We have also learnt how to measure weight/mass using balance and weighing scales.

Welcome back Butterflies and Frogs!


Our topic this term is called ‘It’s a Wonderful World’. We will be kick starting our topic with a special day called ‘Escape to Africa!’ where we will pack our suitcases and get ready for our learning journey to explore the continent of Africa.


We will be covering a range of curriculum areas this half term, including geography (exploring and comparing Africa to the UK, including homes, clothes, entertainment, culture, climate and physical features), science (investigating African animals, habitats and food chains),  ICT (e-safety and coding), art (African weaving)  and D.T (designing and making African musical instruments).


In Literacy we will be using the African traditional tale ‘The Sweetest Song’ as inspiration for our writing. This will include a narrative piece and either an explanation or recount based on the tale. We will also continue to build on our knowledge of phonics by revising the sounds we have learnt so far this year (in particular the phase 5 sounds) in preparation for the Phonics Screening test.


In Maths we will start by learning about 3D shapes, including their names and simple properties. Then we will develop our addition and subtraction skills further and focus on applying them to solve various problems. We will also be learning about fractions.


Please continue to read with your child as much as you can and to complete their weekly home learning tasks. We also hope you have found the personalised reading zap cards and spelling wordbanks useful for supporting your child at home and remind you to continue practising these words little and often. If you have any questions about these please don’t hesitate to come and ask us.
