Year 1 Term 1 Curriculum Overview 2020-2021

Welcome to Year 1! 

During our first full week back this term we have been learning lots of new and interesting things. We've begun to explore our new text "Man on the Moon (a day in the life of Bob)" which we have really enjoyed. We thought about lots of questions we would like to ask Bob and lots of us shared our amazing ideas from the picture we had looked at on here. 


In Maths, we have been continuing to develop our knowledge of number bonds and how this links into addition and how we can find the total when adding on more. The children have been beautifully showing their understanding by drawing ten frames and part-part wholes and have even had a go at making up their own word problems. 


In Science, we have started to look at different animals and how they are grouped. This week we learnt about what a vertebrate and invertebrate was and then sorted some pictures of different animals into groups based on what features they had. 


In Geography, we have continued our investigation of our 'Little Blue Planet' where we thought more about the different oceans and what dangers the oceans face. We spent time exploring the effects of plastic pollution and what we could do to help make it better. We have created some amazing posters! 


In Art, we have been learning all about what printing is and how we print. We took lots of block shapes and put them into paint and printed them onto paper. 


We have done all of this and so much more! It has been a wonderful week of learning and I can't wait to show the children what we are going to be learning about next week! :)
