Year 1 – Autumn Term

Our theme this term is Fairy Tales. We will be exploring a range of alternative fairy tales in our literacy learning which will inspire the children across the curriculum.  

In English, the children will be retelling the events of Jack and The Jelly Bean Stalk using a range of exciting adjectives and phrases. The children will also learn how to write expressive poems, detailed instructions and to describe fairy-tale characters using interesting vocabulary they have learnt.

In maths, we will be exploring numbers to ten and learning how to add and subtract. The children will be able to use a variety of manipulatives and resources to represent their understanding.

The children will have the lucky opportunity to explore Hartsholme Park to develop their artistic skills and recreate the work of Andy Goldsworthy. They will also be able to bring their learning to life as they become expert historians and travel around Waddington to compare the village to 100 years ago.

This term, we will be reading, Jack and the Jelly Bean Stalk by Rachael Mortimer and Little Red by Lynn Roberts.
