Welcome to Year 1
This term, we will be exploring the theme of superheroes. English will be based around the fictional book, “Supertato” by Sue Hendra. This is a light story of a superhero in action, with the good character winning over the villain, carrying on nicely from our traditional tales in term 2.
In Maths, we will be looking at representing and working with numbers up to 50, covering lots of thinking we have just done, but for the next set of numbers. This will help children revisit and secure their learning of these concepts. We will progress on to measurement – length, height, weight and volume - to apply our number knowledge in a practical way.
We will continue the vegetable theme, through our Geography, looking at where different foods grow and why. In Science we will be looking at keeping our bodies healthy.
Our Big Ideas this term are HEROISM, VILLAINY AND HEALTHY LIVING. We will be asking broad questions such as:
