Welcome back to Year 1.
Our topic throughout the Autumn Term is ‘Explorers'. We will be looking at different explorers through history and the places they have visited. We will be thinking about what they would have needed to take, how they would have travelled and what they found. Our literacy work will link to this with stories and poems about journeys to new / unknown places. This will include a visit to Sherwood Forest where the children will become explorers for the day.
The KS1 teachers have worked hard to ensure our planning revisits any potential lost learning as a result of the disruption to children’s education due to COVID restrictions and have incorporated this into the curriculum.
The year one children will have lots of play based learning opportunities as they transition into key stage one. This will enable them to use and build on the approaches to learning developed in the EYFS. A few examples are a role play campsite, a construction area for children to build and map new places or create forms of transport and a ‘Wild about reading area’ with resources for storytelling. Please check out the class DOJO page for more information and photos of the classroom.
