Lordship Lane Primary School

A Love of Learning and the Perseverance to Succeed

Year 1

This term our topic will be 'Sparkle.'

During this connector we will be learning about the history of Bonfire Night and how and why it is celebrated. The children will also learn about Christmas and participate in a Nativity performance at the end of this term. All parents and carers will be invited!




In English we will be retelling the story of Guy Fawkes and learning about his involvement in the Gunpowder Plot. The children will be writing sentences about autumn and use sensory words to describe the season.  Children will continue to use capital letters and full stops appropriately. Please continue to support your child with their alphabet and letter formation.


During Maths, the children will continue to count forwards and backwards starting from different numbers. They will have opportunities to read, write and interpret mathematical statements involving addition (+), subtraction (-) and equals (=) signs.



During Science we will will begin to learn about their five senses and using their senses to support their learning across the curriculum. They will learn about Autumn as part of the ongoing study of the seasons.


Please ensure you read with your child everyday and fill out their reading records. Library books will be changed fortnightly. Books should be kept in children's bags and brought to school everyday.


P.E. will be on:

Monday for 1J

Wednesday 1W

Thursday for 1P



Please don’t hesitate to come and see us either before or after school if you have any questions or queries.
