Welcome to Year 1!
Mrs Sheldrake and Mrs Cottam
Our first Learning Journey is ...
Year One loved learning all about Super Heroes!
Please make sure you check the letters home for all our exciting news.
What an exciting start to our term we have had! We went on a treasure hunt and found a chest left by the famous underwater explorer Jacques
Cousteau. This has welcomed us into our new Learning Journey ‘Commotion in the Ocean’.
Our classrooms were been transported under the sea and the children couldn’t wait to find out about all the amazing creatures and plant Jacques found.
This half term we look forward to moving emerging from the seas to find out all about pesky pirates!
This term we will continue to build on strategies and methods that we already know, deepening our learning and making sure that we really understand key number concepts. A really important concept in Year One is ‘place value’ - looking at two-digit numbers and understanding the value of the number, how many tens and ones are in the number and being able to order two digit numbers.
Year One have been working so hard on our new topics and we really hope they enjoy all the exciting things ahead...

Year One Spring Term
Find out all about what exciting things Year One are learning this term...
This term we will find out about Jacques Cousteau and his life and begin to develop a timeline of his greatest achievements. We will use this subject knowledge to embed some key writing skills when we write a fact file about Jacques. We are also planning to read stories based in magical, undersea worlds and retell them (and of course make them even better!) We will also be reading and writing descriptive poems to describe the creatures that live under the sea, as well as looking a pirates!
This terms core value ‘Joy’ will also be addressed through RE as the children listen to and learn stories about Jesus’ miracles.
Things to Remember!
Don’t forget to make sure that your child’s PE kit is in school every Monday so that it is ready for the week ahead. Year 1 will be having PE on Wednesday afternoon.
