Year 1

Topic - Childhood - Autumn Term 2022

Lead Teacher: Mrs Smith

Maths - For this first term, we will be focusing on place value and mastering counting forwards, backwards, comparing and ordering numbers within 10. We shall also explore part - whole models for addition and find number bonds to 10. We intend to use a variety of manipulatives to help us subitise and problem solve.

Writing - Our English learning will revolve around quality texts: ‘Marvellous Me’, ‘Where’s My Teddy?’ and ‘Can’t You Sleep Little Bear?’ We will use these texts to practise writing lists, captions and facts. We will also be exploring sequences of stories and identifying patterned language.

Topic - Our Autumn topic is called 'Childhood'. We will learn about everyday life and families today, including comparisons with childhood in the 1950s. We shall be using artefacts and a range of different sources. We will also be investigating materials and their uses in our Science lessons.
