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 will be reading The Queen’s Hat and The Tiger Who Came to Tea. We 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 looking at features of the human body and getting to grips with our senses! 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.
