Year 1 Topic and Homework
It's Alive! - Summer Term 2023
In the first half of the Summer term, we will be shrinking down to explore the tiny world of mini-beasts. We will spend time exploring the school grounds, looking at the different habitats within our local area. In Science, we will be looking at the life cycle of plants and how they grow. We will be visiting ‘Wakehurst Place’ in Haywards Heath, where we will look at the life cycle of a sunflower and go on a ‘pollination trail’.
In the second half-term, we will be travelling back in time to discover what the world was like when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. We will look at different dinosaurs and find out facts about each one. The children will also go on an archaeological dig to find out about different fossils and create their own fossils out of salt dough.
In June, we will visit Drusilla’s Zoo where we will take part in a mini beast workshop and be able to see some of our favourite dinosaurs up close!
From Zero To Hero - Spring Term 2023
In the Spring term, we will learn about everything it takes to become a hero. We will explore ‘Real-life’ heroes and the work that they do in our community. We will also look at some historical figures that are known as heroes and think about why that is. We will look at the qualities that heroes need to have and enjoy a WOW day when we put these things into practice! As part of 11b411, we will try to achieve hero status by carrying out good deeds throughout the term.
Blow the House Down - Autumn Term 2022
In the autumn term, we will be looking at castles and fairy tales. The children will learn about different traditional fairy tales and explore the different characters in each story. We have an exciting Fairy-tale day and each child can come to school dressed as their favourite character. Which fairy tale character is your favourite and why?
