Year 1's Autumn Term Curriculum


Our main topic this term will focus on


Science: Animals including humans. 

In this topic the children will be taught to identify and name a variety of common animals including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals.  They will also learn how to identify and name a variety of common animals that are carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. The children will learn to classify animals and use the terminology 'fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals.'  When learning about humans the children will identify, name, draw and label the basic parts of the human body and say which part of the body is associated with each sense.  


Helping at Home


With each subject, there may be things that you can do at home to support your child's learning.  Please see the ideas below, which are optional extras.  We would love to see what you have been up to!


In maths, you could access different games and activities to support fluency; the faster your child can remember key ideas, the easier it will be to access much of the work we do in class.  Click here for some suggestions!  Don't forget to use Numbots regularly too.


In history, we will study 'The Last Ten Years.'  In this topic we will explore places the children have visited in their life, time lines about the events the children have experienced and sports such as the recent the Women's World Cup.  


In computing, we shall spend some time learning about being safe online.  Please see this website for ideas on things you could talk to your child about at home.  We will also learn how to move robots.  In this case, the children will be 'moving Beebots.' 


In English, a really important part to help your child at home is to read. 

We ask that you read every day with your child and record it in their reading records. Reading is the base for all learning across the school so make this a priority for your family.

Always go over the phonics sounds before reading as this will help your child to remember them before they go to read the story.

Talk! Talk about your day, talk about what you are doing, describe things with your children. Get your children to think of different ways to say a word. For example - big- huge, giant, large, enormous etc. 

Let your child read instructions when cooking, or let them make the shopping the shopping list. 


Finally, don't forget to read to your child. Even in Year 6. Children learn best by example, reading to them will show them that you value reading.
