Year 1

Grand Kingdoms and Magical Monsters

Year One continued to impress us during the Spring term. During this topic, we planted our own magic bean plants, created our own fairy tales and made imaginary fairy tale maps. To finish off our topic we visited Warwick Castle!

Wheels, Wellies and Hot Air Balloons.

Our next topic this year is Wheels, Wellies and Hot Air Balloons. During this topic we will be looking at:

  • The seven continents and hot and cold countries in Geography.
  • Weather and the four seasons in Science.
  • How transport has changed in History. During this, we will be looking at the importance of the Wright brothers, Amelia Earhart and Joseph and Jacques Montgolfier.


In English this term our first focus book will be ‘Emma Jane’s Aeroplane’. We will be using this book to write post cards, diary entries and also setting descriptions.

After half term we will focus on non fiction texts. We will be using ‘A Year on Adam’s Farm’ to write about our school farm.


Our mathematics work will begin by looking at multiplication and division. We will then progress onto fractions, place value to 100, money and time.
