Autumn 1

Our topic this term is





Year 1 will be learning traditional rhymes, reading non fiction texts and learning how to label pictures and write captions. We will be reading the story 'Rat a tat tat' later this half term as well.



Sing a song of sixpence

Read the words as you sing along. 😀


In numeracy we will be doing lots of activities with the numbers to 10, including counting, addition and subtraction.



Year 1 will be learning about the seasons and the weather that accompanies Summer and the start of Autumn.

We will also be having fun learning about ourselves; our bodies and our senses.



In geography we will be learning about the local area and comparing it with a different area of Burnley: Hurstwood.



In Year One we will be learning to stay safe on-line. We know that we need to keep our personal information private and speak to a grown-up if we are concerned. We will also be using a graphics package to manipulate photographs that we will take on the iPads.



In history we will be learning about how we change as we grow and learning the language of chronology.



We will be learning about the similarities and differences between ourselves and others. We will be considering the things that are similar and different among families, communities and traditions.

Because we are a school which respects the right of the child we will learn that everyone has the right to 'freedom of thought, belief and religion'

Article 14 of the Rights Respecting Agenda.



We will be learning a variety of basic drawing skills this term, using pencils. We will then apply these skills as the year progresses. Our ICT graphics work is also part of our artwork this term.



The children will be listening to all different kinds of music while we are in the classroom this term. I wonder which will be our favourite?
