Welcome to Year 1

This term our topic is 'School Days'.

This project teaches children about their own school and locality, both today and in the past. They compare schooling in the Victorian era to their experiences today.

We will also be learning about:

Science: Plant Parts, the children will learn about wild and garden plants by exploring the local environment. They identify and describe the basic parts of plants and observe how they change over time. In the second summer term we will also be looking at Animal Parts, this project teaches children about animals, including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals and invertebrates. They identify and describe their common structures, diets, and how animals should be cared for.

RE: In the new unit Baptism children will encounter the concept of God through the promises and symbols of baptism. Many Christians believe that the decision to be committed to Christ and be baptised brings salvation and washes away sins. In the unit of Joseph we will be learning the stories of Joseph using art, drama and objects. In our final topic My World, Jesus World the children are exploring what life was like when Jesus, God the Son, was alive on earth. They will talk about the human nature and experience of Jesus as he lived in the world at that time.

Geography: we will be completing fieldwork, recapping human and physical features, using maps, learning more about our local environment and how things changes over time.

History: in History we wll be using historical vocabulary, looking at historical artefacts and timelines. We will be looking at present day schools, our school and Victorian schools (in the Victorian era). We will be looking at Samuel Wilderspin as our significant individual.

Art: children learn about artwork depicting streets and buildings and focus on the work of the American pop artist, James Rizzi. They create a 3-D mural based on Rizzi's work through our topic Street View. 

Design Technology: Chop, Slice and Mash teaches children about sources of food and the preparatory skills of peeling, tearing, slicing, chopping, mashing and grating. They use this knowledge and techniques to design and make a supermarket sandwich according to specific design criteria.

PSHE: looking at how we can keep ourselves healthy and the importance of diet and physical activity in our unit Being My Best. Name bodily part, their functions and how to help others through our unit Growing and Change unit.

Pick and Mix

Your child will bring home their Pick and Mix linked to their topic. Pick and Mix projects are suggested activities that help to inspire children beyond the classroom. Each activity provides an opportunity for children to explore their topic further using a number of different skills. When children have finished a project, they can bring this into school where each class will have a designated time to celebrate the learning that has taken place. Projects can stay in school and be displayed on each class’s working wall or can be taken home.

If you have any questions about how to further support your child's learning at home, please contact your child's class teacher via Class Dojo or the school office.
