Current Topic 

This term we are going to be looking at traditional tales. We will be retelling and acting out familiar stories before writing our own versions. We will also be looking at the Kings and Queens of England by exploring timelines and historical changes. In Science we will be making the most of the changing weather and our outside area by planting and growing our own beanstalks! We will be thinking about what a plant needs in order to grow and caring for our plants to see what conditions are best

Since returning to school, the year 1 children have had great fun exploring measurement in maths. They have used a range of practical activities to develop their language around length, weight and capacity and have used vocabulary such as longer, shorter, heavier, lighter, full and empty. They have made estimations as well as simple comparisons between objects, and begun to use a range of non standard units of measurement, such as cubes and counters.
