Year 1 2018 - 2019

Miss Joubert


This term our topic will be: ‘Let’s Explore!’

The children will be working hard to achieve their goals in all areas of the curriculum.

Have a look at some of the things they will be learning!




This term in Maths, we will work on additions and subtractions. We will then move on to place value and the use of tens and units. Later on in the term, we will find out about measurements by looking at lengths, heights, weights and volume.

Throughout the year, we will work on our reasoning skills by solving word problems. The children have loved being introduced to our Timetable Rock Stars and they will carry on practising their 2, 5 and 10 tables and related divisions.



In English, we will be reading about a very special character in need of adventure.

In Year 1, we like to plan our English lessons around a book. The chosen book remains a secret for the children as we encourage them to speak and write about the book even before they find out what the title is. We will be having a book reveal a few weeks into term. Watch this space!

We will learn to compose sentences verbally before writing them. We will reinforce our Non-Negotiables (full stops, capital letters, finger spaces and reading over our work) and will learn different writing styles.


Learning Adventure


Our focus this term will be Africa which links to our English text. We will learn to locate Africa on a map, we will also discover its culture, food, music and language. We will compare Africa to other continents and learn about the Kalahari Desert, its weather and its animals.

In Science, we will carry on with our work on humans and animals and their lifecycles.


Our PE days are Monday and Friday, but the children should have their PE kit in school every day. Please check that all PE kits are clearly labelled. In PE we will focus on gym, dance, yoga and games.



Spellings – out on Fridays, tested on Wednesdays.

My Maths – set online on Fridays, to be completed by the following Wednesday.


Please read with your child at least three times a week.



Please send any snack money in an envelope, purse, sandwich bag…to avoid lost coins. Thank you.
