Welcome to our Year 1 page


Here is a summary of the exciting learning that our class will be completing in the Summer Term:


In Maths we will be exploring practical activities, ideas and problem solving skills in length and height, mass and volume and beginning to grasp multiplication and division.  We will move forward through the term to explore money and time within our daily schedules.

In English, we will be building on our new acquired learning from previous terms and extending to adding e and es ending vocabulary. We are excited to be delving into fantasy story settings, diary entries and descriptions this term.


Our topics will allow pupils to use their inquisitive minds when diving into each new topic.

Our topic questions this term are:

What is an explorer?

What do Christians say about God? 

What is the weather like in Shanghai?

Safety and our changing bodies!


Other exciting projects include:

Art: Sculpture and 3D paper

Music:  We will be exploring songs from vast genres to help us find the pulse and rhythm using our voices and beginning to learn how to play various instruments.

Spanish: Shapes and songs.
