Southborough Church of England Primary School


Year 1 Curriculum Overview 2020 - 2021

Week ending 4th December:


We have started a new topic in Maths about 3-D and 2-D shapes.  The children have been busy sorting and organising 3-D shapes into sets.  They have also been spotting these shapes in everyday objects - perhaps they could have a look at home and see if they can identify some, eg.  cylinders (Pringle tubes), cones (traffic cones), cubes (dice), cuboids (boxes)  and spheres (footballs).  


In Geography this week, we have been comparing the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and looking at the animal life found there.  We have also been looking at animals in Science and the habitats they live in, particularly the Savannah and our local woodland area.


Our Forest School afternoon was very wet and muddy but there was some shelter and the children had lots of fun! 


We have been busy with our nativity rehearsals too.  Thank you for all your support with this.  We are looking forward to seeing their costumes this week.


Well done to Hector for his Head's Hero award!


Look on the website under Children; Christmas Celebrations for our class's advent calendar film for 8th December.
