Year 1 2020 - 2021

Welcome to the Year 1 page

Welcome back to the Summer Term

Given the continued COVID-19 restrictions, we ask if you need to contact us then please do so via the messaging option on ClassDojo


Year 1 Curriculum - Summer 1

This Half Term we will be looking at the following topics:

Science: Plants and Growth

We will revisit and consolidate learning done in Reception about the parts of a plant and use this knowledge to find out more about how plants grow.  We will be planting a wildflower area in the School Garden and investigating how plants grow by observing seeds and propagation in class.  We will also be learning about the parts of plants that we eat.

Geography: A Scottish Island Home

We will learn about the geography of the UK and its constituent countries and capital cities.  Through the Katie Morag storybooks, we will learn about life on a Scottish island in the Hebrides and examine the differences between island life and city life in Manchester.  Children will extend and consolidate their understanding of aerial views through looking at simple maps and begin to identify human and physical features of a location.
