Welcome to Year One

Year one news - SPRING TERM


Welcome to our page! We hope you will find the information on here useful. If you have any questions about our learning, or any concerns about your child, please don't hesitate to catch me before or after school.

Miss Lee 


This term we will cover classic stories and writing instructional texts. The children will read the story of The Enormous Turnip and then innovate the story to create their own adaptation of it. We will then explore the use of instructions and the importance of ordering instructions correctly. In line with our theme, we will then plant our own seed and use this to develop our own instruction texts. The key focus for this term will be to include appropriate punctuation in sentences and to use the suffix –ed to change a verb.


The main focus this term will be on place value to include work on addition and subtraction to 20, moving onto larger numbers once secure. This term we will start to learn about multiplication and division. Children will continue to develop their understanding of counting in 2s, 5s and 10s and learn how to divide numbers by sharing or grouping. The outdoor environment will be used wherever possible this term to enhance the learning experience.
