St Peter's Community Primary School

Year 1

This term in Blue Class...

Autumn 2: We will be stepping back in time this half term with our ‘Time Travellers’ topic. We will become history detectives, finding and solving clues to unlock the mysteries and meaning of past events. In History, we’ll begin our journey by focusing on events that are important to us. We will be learning how to use a range of different sources to discover information, such as objects, interviews, books and the Internet. We will focus on history locally but also internationally by looking at festivals from around the world. 

Our focus in P.E. will be dance and we will be learning how to move in different ways and how to sequence these movements to create group dances. We will draw links to our previous topic ‘How are you?’ by looking at favourite meals from 50 years ago and where food comes from. 

In Computing we will be building upon our keyboard skills, learning how to save our work and how to stay safe on the internet. 

Our focus text in Literacy is ‘Beegu’ by Alexis Deacon which will inspire a variety of writing including letters and character descriptions. 

In Maths, we will be learning about number bonds, completing number stories and solving picture problems. 

In PSHE and SEAL we will be learning about bullying (what it is and how to deal with it) and about identifying our feelings. 

We’ll also be learning how to say our numbers and colours in Spanish; about the story of the birth of Jesus in R.E. and learning our Christmas songs in Music.
