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 taking inspiration from the the text Goldilocks and Just the One Bear, by Leigh Hodgkinson. 

Have you ever wondered what happened to Goldilocks and the Three Bears, after the traditional tale ended? Well this story is set years later and Little Bear finds himself lost in the big city. I wonder who he might meet?


This term, we will be consolidating our knowledge and understanding of Phase 5 Phonics where children will learn alternative pronunciations and spellings for phonemes. We will continue to practice our segmenting and blending skills through reading and writing.



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 login details just send a Dojo.

Reading books will be changed every Tuesday and Friday. 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 problems. Lessons will then utilise a range of sources including: Maths No Problem, White Rose, NCETM.

We will be learning about units of measure this term: height, length, weight, volume and mass, before looking at time and money.


As we near the end of the school year, we will evaluate how the Seasons in the year have changed and what will happen to the weather, day length as we near the next school year.

Our sunflower project willl also draw to an end this term, as we see how high our sunflowers have grown.

We will also consolidate our learning about animals by taking a closer look at the human body and how our senses help us.

Foundation Subjects

We will be learning about the significant life of author, Lewis Carroll and his links to our town of Warrington. 

We will begin our study of Lewis Carroll by celebrating one of his most famous pieces of work - Alice in Wonderland.

Design Technology

We will be investigating food and nutrition in this term, though desinging, making and evaluting foods.

During this time, we will be encouraged to sample new and well known fruits and vegetables, whilst developing an understanding of how to maintain a healthy and balanced diet.


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, as well as developing our knowledge of money and how to stay safe.



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

Homework includes:


Tuesday and Friday - Reading books will be changed, 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 tested on these spellings on Friday, please ensure your child learns these spellings by practicing daily.


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


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