Long Term Plan

Please find the long term plan for Year 1 attached below. There is lots of exciting learning ahead.

Positive attitude = Positive results

We really encourage all of our Year 1 learners to have a positive attitude towards every task that they are faced with. We have been so happy to hear 'Yay!" and "Yes!" when faced with new challenges. Any challenge is more manageable when matched with a good attitude. We ask parents to please encourage the same attitude when completing homework activities at home.




Each week we have an outdoor PE session on a Thursday and we have swimming groups on Mondays and Fridays.



Please hear your child read every night and sign in their reading records. Reading plays such an important role in your child’s learning and is needed in every aspect of their learning. Please note reading books will be changed on a Monday and a Thursday.


In Year 1 spellings will go home weekly. These spellings and spelling rules will also be covered in class throughout the week. New spellings will be sent home every Thursday and a spelling test will be written every Wednesday. Please make sure your child practises their spellings every night. This can be an independent activity using the ‘Look-Say-Cover-Write-Check’ approach. Other ways of learning spellings can be found on our 'how to help your child at home' page.


We are learning about explorers in our history and geography topic. We will be learning all about great explorers Neil Armstrong, Christopher Columbus and Tim Peake.

In art we are learning about colour mixing. We are having lots of fun seeing what colours we can make from the primary colours; red, yellow and blue.

Our science topic this term is plants. We will be learning about what plants need to grow and how to look after them. We will also be learning about why plants are so important to us!
