Year 1

Welcome back to the Year 1 page! In Year 1 we have two classes. Our class teachers are Miss Parker and Miss Hickling. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Marshall and Mrs Robertson. We hope you enjoy looking at our Year 1 page, seeing what we are learning about this term and finding some useful website links too.

This term we will be looking at the topic 'The Seaside'

History and Geography

Children will learn about the seaside and how it has changed over time. The children will order seaside holidays along a timeline and discuss the similarities and differences they notice. The children will draw a map and add a suitable key using their own ideas. 

The Arts

Children will be learning the different ways to collage materials. They will learn the techniques to cut a range of fabrics and the ways to overlap them to create a scene. 

Science

Children will be learning about  habitats and the animals that live in them. They will research the different names for animals and learn about the five animal groups. 

PE and Healthy Lifestyles

During PE lessons, children will be practising key throwing and catching skills. With our PE coach, the children will be learning tennis skills. Children will develop their understanding of the importance of warming up and cooling down before and after exercise. Please ensure PE kits are in school Monday to Friday.

Learning for Life

Children will have the opportunity to develop their enterprise skills throughout the term focussing on risk taking, problem solving, team work and decision making. In our Life Sim lesson the children will learn different ways to organise and manage their own time and learning. During philosophy sessions the children will discuss belonging and differences between themselves and other groups. They will continue to ask questions about matters that interest them.
