Year 1 Our Learning 2020-21

Autumn 1


This half term children have settled in well into their new class and routines.  They have enjoyed exploring their new classroom and being with friends again. Children have learnt lots already and have been particularly interested in learning about our local area and local heroes. Here are some of the things we have been learning about in Autumn term.  



In RE children have learnt about families, how all families are different and about how it feels to be part of God’s family.  Children are now learning about ‘Belonging’.  They have discussed different groups they belong to and how they feel being part of a group.  They listened to the story of Jesus and the children, where He welcomes and blesses the children around them into God’s family.  The children have enjoyed learning about our school family, and we have made a class jigsaw to show that we all fit together to complete our school family. 



This half term we had a visit from a special bear who brought us a new story to read. We have enjoyed reading Bumble Bear and helping Norman the bear to find some more honey. We wrote letters to Norman and made lots of lovely pictures for him. We looked at a recount of his day at Bee School and then made our own recount of our school day. Our second topic was traditional tales, where the children learned the story of the ‘Three Billy Goats Gruff’ using a story map.  After that, the children came up with their own characters and villain to create their own story. They have enjoyed making their own story maps and sharing their new stories with the class. 



This half term children have been learning about numbers to 10. They have been writing numbers, counting accurately, counting forwards and backwards, finding one more and less than a number and representing numbers in different ways  The Children have also made a great start ordering and comparing numbers, and using a number line to help them solve number problems. 

Hello year 1. 


We have set you some fun activities for you to do in the summer holidays. Our first topic that we will be doing is called 'We are wonderful' we have attached a summer project that you can have fun completing with your family. You can choose which task you would like to do or you can do them all. It's totally up to you! Please make sure that you upload some pictures so we can see all the fantastic things that you have been up to in the holidays and then we can share these with the rest of the class in September.


There is also a fun summer sports challenge attached that you can complete.
We have also attached a transition document to read through to help your child transition from reception to year 1. 

Have a great Summer and we will see you in September!  😀


See you soon
Mrs. Edwards and Miss Guinan
