Term 1 Learning

 In Year 1, to provide continuity, we learn through continuous provision. This means that we take responsibility for our own learning through planned investigation and sometimes work in small groups with an adult. 




Our English learning this term will be focused around the book The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson. 

The Snail and the Whale: Amazon.co.uk: Donaldson, Julia: Books

We will use this story to provide us with lots of writing opportunities in which we will be focusing on forming our letters correctly, using capital letters and full stops when writing sentences and spelling our keywords.

Reading and Phonics

This term we will recap phase 3 phonics to ensure that any gaps can be addressed. Click here to see our phonics overview.



This term, we will be building on our knowledge from Reception to strengthen our understanding of number. We will be covering place value (up to 10) and addition as well as recapping what we have already learnt.

Term 1 Wider Curriculum


To begin the year, it's all about us and our families! We will be exploring our own families and using photos to compare the past to the present. 

We will be learning about what is different from when our grandparents were little to now.
