Year 1 Curriculum

Summer Term 2018 (A).

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Easter break. We will be asking . . .

What’s the difference?

A look at all things different and of course similar between humans, including animals.

English: Read, Write, Inc: Please click on the link to learn more

Read, Write, Inc:

This programme is established in all classes and is making a huge positive impact, this will be further enhanced with class ‘Big Writes.’ which will re-inforce recounts and 'time' language, first, next, then, finally.' We introduce list sentences this term using commas.


Mathematics: Multiplication, division and fractions.

The term is, as usual, dedicated to the 4 rules of mathematics [ +  ÷  x  —] We now also bring into this links to the main topic, so it also includes Tens & One, and placement of a digit in a squared maths book.

Good sites are

Science: Humans Including Animals.

Geography: Habitats

Linked closely with Science, we will explore where animals, including humans live.


Professional coaches from Bury F.C will be teaching the children this term again.


Using ICT to create art inspired by Picasso.

Art: Guess who?

Looking at the work of portrait artists Picasso and the different way they created portraits. The children will then create a piece of art based on their techniques.


Reading skills, reading comprehension and reading for pleasure in year 1 are vitally important. This is why every child will be expected to bring in their allocated reading book, with record book, EVERY DAY. We change books Mon, Wed, Fri (at least) and check progress daily. We read every day and have a sustained guided reading session once a week. As part of this system we also have a preference reading scheme in which children are encouraged to read anything they want, (age related) from our school library.

Our class reads this term are: Non-Fiction books on habitats and animals.


The Creation Story.
