Year 1 Overview

We start the school year with the topic ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. We read several different versions, write our own version and write a story based on Little Red Riding Hood.

We also investigate aspects of the story. Could the wolf really have eaten Granny whole? What would be the best material to use if we wanted to make Little Red Riding Hood a new cloak?

After half term we Celebrate Us! We investigate how human children grow and develop. We learn about important events such as The Gunpowder Plot and Remembrance Day.

In RE we learn the story of Rama and Sita before rehearsals begin on our Christmas production.

Spring Term

We begin by looking Into the Woods, investigating British woodlands and the environment.

The second half of the term sees us looking deeper into the British countryside as we don our wellies to learn about farms and farm animals.

Summer Term

We travel further afield in Summer, taking a virtual tour of another country. We learn about the culture, the artwork and the food.

We finish the year with a ‘Yo, Ho, Ho!’ as we leave landlubbers behind and take to the high seas on a pirate adventure.

The documents below will give you more detailed information about learning in Year 1 this year.
