A Love of Learning and the Perseverance to Succeed

Year 1

This term our topic will be 

During this connector we will be learning about some of the more important landmarks of London such as the Shard, London Eye. Tower Bridge and Buckingham Palace. The unit will also include using maps and atlases to locate London.



English will be taught through stories such as Little Red Riding Hood, Pumpkin Soup and Love Splat. The children will be sequencing and retelling the stories. There will be opportunities for role play and hot seating. Children will practice using capital letters and punctuation appropriately. Please continue to support your child with their alphabet, letter formation and sentence building.


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 the children will learn that we can group animals according to what they eat and become familiar with using the language such as herbivores, carnivores and omnivores.


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.
