Welcome to Owls Class (Year 1)

Owls latest blogs


Welcome back to Term 5! I am looking forward to another term with the children, watching  them grow and make progress.


Here’s what your child will be learning:

English: We’ll be focusing on the fairy tale ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’, focusing on refining what we have learnt so far this year with describing words and conjunctions, and dipping into a bit of speech. We will also be continuing with our phonics in our daily Read Write Inc. sessions.


Maths: We will be looking at multiplication and division, fractions, position and direction, and beginning to look at place value up to 100. Lots of new and exciting learning this term!


Science: Science will focus on plants. We will be learning about what a plant needs to grow, different types of plants and seeds, and the different parts that make up a plant.


Geography: In Geography, we will be looking at the Seven Continents. We will learn about the continents, the oceans, and then look more closely at Antarctica, Africa, Asia and Europe.


Computing: Computing will be taught on a Friday by Mr O’Neon and this term we will be doing some coding!


RE: This term our focus is Judaism, over the next two terms we will be working on and trying to answer the question – ‘Who is Jewish and what do they believe?’


Art: Art will be taught on a Friday by Miss Hayward and this term we will be looking at paintings of children.


DT: This term our focus in DT is on textiles. We will be making our own puppets!


PSHE: In PSHE this term we will be exploring different jobs, rules in families, and caring for others including animals and people.


Music: Music will be taught on a Friday and for the next two terms we will be looking at musical vocabulary.


PE: This term we will be working on our striking and fielding skills.



P.E. is on Wednesdays and Fridays this term, so remember to send your child into school in P.E. kit on Friday and bring P.E. kit into school for our Wednesday P.E. lessons.

Please ensure your child brings their blazer, school cap/beret, and a water bottle in every day.

We will change books after children read them twice so they can understand the stories better and gain a better understanding of the words and stories. We’ll read with them at least once a week in school.

Home learning is emailed out every Friday.

If you have any queries about this term, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours faithfully,

Miss Wilkinson
