Welcome to Summer!

On this page, you will find all the information you need for Year 1 and it will be updated half termly.

This page includes my Long Term Planning which outlines what we will be learning across the year and my Medium Term Planning, whoch gives a breakdown of learning for each specific half term.



In  English we will be following the riotous adventures of Oscar,  a young boy who is on the case to find the missing wooly mammoth before the clock strikes one!

Children will develop a range of writing skills: using 'and' to join words and clauses; punctuating sentences using full stops, capital letters, question marks and exclamation marks and adding suffixes -ed, -ing, -er, -est

Additionally, they will learn to use story language; effectively describe characters and settings and include 3 parts to their very own adventure story.


Phonics is a fundamental part of your child's learning, as it underpins the ability to read and write. Children will receive daily phonics with this term's focus being on Phase 5 Phonics. Here childrne will learn alternative spellings and pronunciations for phonemes previously taught.



Reading provides children with the opportunity to escape everyday life, without leaving the room. 

All children have a Bug Club account which they can access any time! If you need help with log in details just send a Dojo.

Reading books will be allocated every Tuesday. Please sign your child's reading record to state when they have read.



We begin our maths lessons with an engaging hook that gets the children to independently investigate the problem. Lessons will then utilise a range of sources: Maths No Problem, White Rose, NCETM.

We will be looking at consolidating learning at the the start of this term before moving learning on. We will focus on, place value, number facts and addition and subtraction with 50.


We will continue to discuss observe changes to previously taught units such as Seasonal Changes. Here we will investigate how our world changes as Spring moves into Summer.

We will also continue to learn about plants through observing and recording changes to our Sunflower Experiment.

We will begin to learn about animals including humans. This will include species classification and what defines each animal type.

Foundation Subjects


We will be learning all about our local area, starting with our classroom, school and Penketh before moving on to looking at the area of Warrington.

Within this unit, we will learn to read maps and symbols, as well as using direction to navigate.



We will be investigating texture and collage through looking at the work of Henri Matisse and Henri Rousseau.



Every Friday morning, Year One will have PE with Mr Kashiri. Please ensure that your child has a suitable PE kit for the changing weather and a water bottle, so that they can fully enjoy their PE sessions.

Please also ensure that your child's uniform and PE kit is labelled with their name - this will avoid any items getting lost.


We recognise that children have not had the same opportunities that they normal would have: physically, socially and emotionally.

Through PSHE, we will revisit relationships and how to live a healthy lifesytle.



Home work will be set on a Monday and it due in on Friday.

Homework includes:


Tuesday - Reading books will be allocated, please document reading in your child's Reading Record.

Bug Club - all children have an account that they can access anytime. This is a fantastic website and really supports developing comprehension.


Children will be set 10 spellings linked to the phonics focus and the common exception words.

Children will be tested on these spellings on Friday, please ensure your child learns these spellings.


One piece of Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar work will be set, that links to the weekly English teaching.


One piece of maths will be set, that links to the weekly maths teaching.
