English

In Year 1, children learn to orally retell different types of texts using story maps and actions. We ask all parents to support children with learning these texts at home orally, so that children can use them to create their own versions. The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year 1. Please download the texts and story maps and practise retelling them. Aim to retell the texts with actions and expression!

The topic for Autumn One was called 'Our School and Village, Sway', which linked our Science and Geography lessons together. We went on a journey with Barnaby Bear to find him the perfect place to build his new home. The children learnt about the four seasons, the key features of our school and village and discovered the mini beasts that live on the school grounds. For the Brilliant Beginning, the children built rain gauges and wind socks which we will use to record the weather throughout the year. Rainfall, the sunset and temperature will be recorded each term on a class graph.

 

The topic for Autumn Two was called 'Toys' where the children played with artefacts and looked in books to see what toys were like in the past. They discovered that old toys were dull and made out of wood, whereas toys today tend to be colourful and made out of plastic. However, wood seems to be the new material to make toy from today! Some modern toys even have batteries that gives toys the ability to move. The children wrote brilliant descriptions, drew and coloured old and new toys for their own Toy Museum when they had their Fantastic Finale. The children thoroughly enjoyed playing with old and new toys this term - super work Year One!

 

The topic for Spring one was called 'An Island Home'. The children went on a journey with the Mr Men and Little Miss characters and leart all about the Isle of Coll. They discovered the physical and human features of the island and compared them to the  features in Sway. For the Brilliant Beginning on Friday 14th January, the children dressed up as their favourite Mr Men or Little Miss character and decorated biscuits and played lots of fun games. 

 

The topic for Spring Two was called 'Fire Fire' for the The Great Fire of London. The children learnt all about The Great fire of London in 1666, specifically what caused the fire and what we can use to learn about the past. For our Brilliant Beginning on Friday 11th March, the children roasted marshmallows on a campfire and created silhouettes of London during the fire. The children designed and made fruit kebabs from their favourite fruits in Design and Technology! Thank you and have an amazing Easter half term, Year One!

 

The combined History and Geography topic for Summer is called 'Off to the Seaside!' The children will compare the Victorian seaside to today, identifying differences and similarities in how people dresses, travelled and the toys that they used at the beach. Additionally, the children will look at human and physical features at Bournemouth Beach with Barnaby Bear. For their Brilliant Beginning on Friday 6th May, the children will create aquariums out of shoe boxes. If you have any shoe boxes or seaside objects at home, please bring them into school. They will visit Bournemouth beach in the second term for the Fantastic Finale on Monday 11th July!

Class Country

Our class country is France. Over the year, we will find out what it is like to live in France, learn about famous French monuments and learn some French words and phrases.

 

Have you ever been on holiday to France? Can you speak any French?
