Year 1 Spring 1 2020-21


In English we will be consolidating writing in sentences. We will continue to verbalise our ideas and make sure we include capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. Linked with our phonics we will begin to use the correct sounds and apply our tricky words spellings. Please make sure you child’s reading log is in their book bag every day and they are changing their reading book regularly.


In maths we are beginning to use the language of time and tell the time to the hour and half hour on an analogue clock. We will also be consolidating our place value knowledge and developing our awareness of the number system to include number up to 100. Why not practise counting in twos, fives and tens as you walk up and down the stairs?


In science we will build upon our learning about properties of material from the Autumn term and begin to work scientifically to solve simple problems and make reasonable predictions and observations.


Our geography work is all about our school grounds and the local area in which we live.  We will look at maps and aerial photographs. We will think about the physical and human features of the town we live in. Whilst exploring Alresford we will consider the places of worship in the town and compare a Christian church to a Jewish synagogue.


Whilst out and about in Alresford we will consider how to keep safe in public places using the phrase ‘Clever never goes’. For further information please visit We will also practise crossing roads safely. Please continue to remind your child to think about these things when you are walking to school or out as a family at weekends.


In ICT we will explore bee-bots and the bee bot app to navigate around using simple instructions.


Our PE work with the Perins staff will continue and in gym we will be using different types of jumps in a short sequence and landing safely.


In music we will be exploring timbre and the different sounds instruments can make,  and learning instrument names. We will be working in small groups developing our collaboration skills.
