Year 1 - Our Learning



Welcome back to Year 1! Miss Unsworth and the Year 1 Team hope you have had a lovely break and welcome you back for the Summer Term.

In English, we are starting the year with a 'Big Write' unit based on the short film 'Float' by Pixar. We will be exploring the film's themes in order to write a poem celebrating our differences and our talents.

Our next unit will be 'Traditional Tales'. We will share written and oral versions of traditional talesWe will have fun retelling the stories and creating our own versions using story maps. 

In our non-fiction unit, we will delve into toys from the past and explore the features of a non-fiction text. This learning will link to our History topic and will involve writing a non-fiction text, instructions and a recount.


We will have daily phonics sessions that will help to improve our learning and understanding of phonemes and graphemes. This will be the foundation for our reading and spelling.

We will take the Phonics Screening Check during the week beginning 12th June.


We have small group reading sessions three times per week where we enjoy reading and answering questions about fictional and non-fictional texts. 




This term we will be busy learning about multiplication and division. We will be using concrete resources to explore equal and unequal groups. We will be listening to lots of songs and rhymes to help us count in 2s, 5s and 10s. We will be building on our understanding of place value to explore numbers up to 100. 



In science this term, we will be learning about plants. We will be investigating how plants grow from tiny seeds and what they need to stay healthy. We will identify and name a variety of common wild and garden plants and find out the difference between deciduous and evergreen trees.






Foundation Subjects

These subjects focus on lots of different life skills which are learnt through computing, DT, art, music, PE, RE, geography and history. This term is jam packed with lots of fun things for us to learn about! We will be exploring patterns in Art, learning about toys from the past, and creating maps of our local area in Geography.
