Year 1




Our topic for this term is:

Spring has Sprung



We will be learning about the parts of a plant and looking at plants in our environment. We will also be growing our own plants and doing lots of first hand investigating at our Forest Schools sessions. We will also be continuing with our work on seasons. It would be lovely if the children could start looking for signs of Spring whilst at home.









In History and English, we will be learning about famous people from the present and past who are/have been heroes in some way.


In History we will be comparing these people, learning about what they did and using topic words related to the past.


In Science, we will be learning about the different seasons. During the second week back, we have our whole school STEM week (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). We will be doing lots of investigations this week. We also have a scientist coming into school to talk to the children about growing plants in test tubes.

Bug Club

Your chid will bring home their Bug Club passwords in their reading records. Please log in and complete the books on a regular basis. Please also remember to encourage your child to read something every night to you. Research shows that in the early stages of learning to read, children should read the same book at least three times to help them become confident with what the book is about and the vocabulary that is used.
