Year 1

 

EXCITING THINGS THE CHILDREN WILL BE LEARNING IN THE SPRING TERM…

We will begin the term with an exciting topic all about London! In English, we will learn all about some of London’s most famous landmarks before writing our very own fact files about the city. In Geography, we will learn about the four countries and surrounding seas of the United Kingdom and will practise locating these on a map. Our first Science topic will be about the seasonal changes that take place in Winter. We will record the weather, observe Winter changes in the forest and will find out what happens to animals in Winter. Later in the term, we will explore materials. We will practise naming, describing and sorting a variety of different materials and will then carry out an exciting investigation linked to this!

After half term, we will travel back in time to learn all about the Great Fire of London. The children will look at images and will place events on a historical timeline to show what happened. They will also take part in an exciting history day where they will learn all about life in London in 1666. More details will be sent home later on in the term!
