Welcome to Year 1

Year 1 includes Eagle class and Flamingo class

La La La book image

This term in year one we are exploring the question ‘What is courage?’ using the picture book La La La by Kate DiCamillo and Jaime Kim, the chapter book Clever Polly and the Stupid Wolf by Catherine Storr and the traditional Japanese story of The Moon Princess. We are very excited to find out about this topic in line with our new story telling curriculum.


In literacy we will be doing lots of descriptive writing based on our stories and we will be learning about using speech and connectives in our writing. Our maths focus for the term is addition and subtraction. We will also look at internet safety this term, exploring how we can use the internet to connect with other people and how to stay safe as we do so.

We will be exploring Japan in geography, looking at comparing Japan and the UK and finding out about buildings, landscapes and schools. Our work in geography, as well as our stories and our exploration of courage will influence our art this term where we will be looking at water colour paintings and mixed media art. At the end of term we will be holding an art gallery to show off our fantastic work. This term we will also be visited by the fire brigade and have a visit from Japanese students.
