Letters and Documents

Here are some useful documents and letters for Year 1.




Our RE topic this half term will be ‘God’s Great Plan.’ We will be thinking about all the beautiful things God has created in our world. We will also be studying some Bible stories, such as the story of creation and Noah’s Ark.

We have already been busy creating our 'God's Great Plan' display. We have drawn and written about the beautiful things we see in God's world. We have written prayers to say thank you for the amazing things in our world and we have all created our own faces as we are a beautiful part of God's world.



In English this term we will be looking at stories by the same author, poems on a theme and non-chronological reports.

We will be using the fiction text 'Wanted the Perfect Pet' as well as a range of non fiction texts about animals and the poem 'The animals went in two by 2two. These texts will support our work on animals in science and our topic 'Penguins, Possums and Pigs.'

This half term we will be covering number and place value, addition and subtraction, length and mass/weight and 2D and 3D shape. We will also be working hard on our problem solving and reasoning skills throughout these topics.



Our topic in Science is ‘Animals – other animals.’ This will be linked to our literacy and topic work. Children will be learning about different types and groups of animals, the structure of their bodies and how they are similar and different. 

We have already been busy creating our 'Animals' display. We have written about and drawn pictures of our favourite animals. We have also made some animals from each group using paints and collage.

Our first topic this half term is going to be ’Penguins, Possums and Pigs”. We will be thinking about hot and cold places and the different animals, plants and weather we may find there. We will be developing this through our art work making clay penguins as well as drawing paper based and digital pictures of hot and cold places and animals. We will alo be learning to identify hot and cold places on a world map in relation to the equator.

During this half term Year 1 will be lucky enough to take part in a class cooking programme. The children will be making cheese biscuits and a seasonal salad. If your child has any allergies that we need to be aware of then please let school know.
