Year 1 - Our Learning

Autumn 1


This half term children have settled in well into their new class and routines.  Children have learnt lots already and have been on a local walk and are looking forward to their first class trip to the football museum.  Here are some of the things we have been learning about in Autumn term.  





Our first topic in English was recounts.  Children learnt what a recount is and learnt the recount of ‘Charlie’s Walk’.  They then went on their own walk around the school and created their own recount from this including time conjunctions, adjectives and working on full stops and capital letters.  Their second topic was traditional tales, children learnt the story of the ‘Three Billy Goats Gruff’ using a story map.  After that, children came up with their own characters and villain to create their own story.

This half term children have been looking at numbers to 10, writing them, making them correct amounts, counting forwards and backwards and finding one more and less.  Children have also made a great start making number bonds to ten and making up their own number stories.



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.  Children even made a poster of a badge for their group writing about their feelings inside.

We are Wonderful


To start off our school year children have been learning about our wonderful selves.  They started looking at drawing themselves in self portraits through art, to looking at where they live and the local area in Geography.  They have learnt about the weather in Manchester linking to what happens in Autumn in science and children are now starting to find out about local heroes from their area.  


Some of the questions children wanted to to find out were-


‘Where do we live?’

’Why do leaves come down?’

’What does local mean?’

’What is a hero?’s
