Autumn Term 2

This term Year 1 are becoming more independent in their learning and are starting to work as a whole class during lessons. We will also be working towards our Infant Nativity performance later on this term.

In geography we will be learning about our local area and will also start to learn to read simple maps. In writing, our two class texts are Beegu and The Christmas Pine; Year 1 will be writing character and setting descriptions, as well as rewriting the story in their own words. At the beginning of the term, we will be reading a book about a mystery pet!

In maths we are building on the strong foundations of composition of number that we covered last term and starting addition and subtraction within 10. We will learning about animals including humans in science.

In RE, we will be delving into the Nativity story and exploring the different roles in the story. Finally in art, we will be creating beautiful pieces of landscape art!

Autumn Term 1

This term, Year 1’s topic is ‘the History of Camden Market’. We will be visiting the market and using our detective skills to find clues about what the market used to be like. In drama we will throw ourselves back in time to imagine what life might have been like in the past, and understand what Camden Market must have been like with the stables and the horse hospital.

Our class texts this term encourage lots of imaginative retelling. We first start off with ‘Who Are You’, a book all about how we are similar and different. This will be the theme of our class assembly at the beginning of the term! Later on, we will be reading the beloved picture book, The Odd Egg and will also look at some traditional African tales for Black History month.

In Maths, we will be revisiting our number facts – counting up to 10 and working with numbers from 0-10 to build a more solid understanding of place value, addition and subtraction. We will be trying to use our reasoning skills to explain what we have found.

In Science, we will be learning about seasonal changes and plants! In Art, we will work on developing our drawing and mark-making skills, as well as looking at the work of artist Frank Bowling for Black History month. In RE, we will learn about the Christian/Jewish creation story and learn to share and explain our beliefs as well as understand that Christians believe that God created the world in seven days.
