Language, Literacy and Communication

In Year 1 this term, the pupils continue to practice their phonics, ensuring they have a solid understanding of their sounds including recognising and writing them. This will be Phase 2 and Phase 3 sounds. Pupils will be segmenting and blending sounds to read simple words and phrases.  This is will help to develop pupils reading and writing skills.


The pupils will be working hard to develop their oracy skills and will complete regular activities where they have opportunities to work in groups to share their ideas with their peers.


The pupils will be planning a mini-art gallery for the end of term 2, where they will need to design invitations, price labels and the layout of the gallery.



Mathematics & Numeracy

In Math’s and Numeracy pupils will continue to learn about numbers including addition and subtraction, place value, money- recognising coins and making small amounts.


Pupils will also look at patterns, shape, and symmetry through our art inquiry.


The different number skills learnt will be used across all areas of the curriculum and will be applied to our inquiry. These skills will aid the process of planning and holding a mini art gallery.




Inquiry Based Learning

This term our topic is ‘Art Attack.’ Pupils will be focusing on self-portraits, where they will look closely at the features they have and use various techniques to draw themselves. The pupils will become more self-aware.

Pupils’ attention will be drawn to their torso’s, including how they vary by shape and size. They will learn how to draw them accordingly.


Appreciation of Art will be explored, looking at various modern artists and comparing their work. Pupils will gain a cultural understanding of what influences people to draw.
