Welcome to Year 1

Miss Maxted, Mrs Morley and Mrs Winterbottom make up our Year 1 team. 

Autumn Term 1


We will be reading traditional tales to inspire our learning this term. We are focusing on the traditional tale of ‘The Three Little Pigs’. We will continue to build on Reception learning and supporting children to write simple sentences independently.

The children will also continue to take part in daily phonics sessions. To improve their reading and spelling.


This term we will be focusing on sorting and counting, comparing and ordering, finding one more and one less, number bonds to 10 and addition and subtraction.

We will be giving the children lots of practical experiences in their maths lessons to deepen their understanding. You can support with this at home by giving them lots of opportunities to count, add and subtract in real life contexts.


In Geography, we will be exploring our local area of Godley and Hyde. We will learn about different houses and buildings in Godley through fieldwork and looking at maps. We will also find out where Godley is located within the world.

Throughout this term in Science, we will learning to identify and describe different materials. We will be investigating the properties of materials when thinking about designing a house for the three little pigs.
