Welcome to Spring Term in Year 1

In English we will be start the term by learning how to write instructions. Then we will learn about journey stories before moving onto thematic poetry.



In History, we will be learning all about different explorers. We will be focusing on Amelia Earhart, Sir Francis Drake and Neil Armstrong.



In science, we will be learning about materials and their properties. We will be conducting some investigations to find out which materials work best as part of an umbrella. We will also investigate the fastest way to melt ice.


In DT, we will be researching, designing, making and finally evaluating our own fruit salad.



In Art, we will be focusing on learning about collage. We will explore different materials and colours before making our final piece.



In computing, we will be learning how to improve our mouse skills. Later on we will start learning how to design and build a rocket, using a computer to help us write our list of materials and draw our designs.



In RE, we will be learning all about who Jewish people are and how they live. We will also learn about Jewish stories.



In the first half term, we will be thinking and learning about the topic: dreams and goals. We will think about what is like to face challenges and how different strategies can help us when things get tough. In the second half term, we will be learning about healthy me. This will include physical and mental health.


P.E. will be on Monday and Wednesday. Depending on the weather this could be indoors or outdoors so please bring a full PE kit (including trainers/daps). 

Useful Information 

Home learning

Reading – 10 minutes reading daily. We ask that an adult signs the reading diary and it is handed in at least once per week. This is a whole school focus this year!


Games and PE

Children will need their PE kit in school all week as children  MUST have P.E. kit to take part for health and safety reasons.


Kit:        Trainers, white shirt, blue/black shorts, football/trainer socks.

In colder weather, a plain tracksuit may be worn outdoors for games.


Please ensure that all items of clothing are named. A small named bag containing your PE kit is all that is necessary as cloakroom space is limited.  Please keep your PE kit in school and we will ensure that it is sent home each half term for washing.


As so many of us are spending more and more time online, it is important that the children have a secure knowledge of how to be safe.  We will discuss various issues regarding this each week.  If your child or yourself have any questions linked to their online world, then please do not hesitate to get in touch or have a look at some of the links below.
