Year 1

Welcome to Year 1's Class Page Summer 2023

Miss Evans and Ms Mair


Welcome back for Summer 2023! 


This term, Year 1's Vehicle is called:


'Land, Sea and Sky'.


This ties in with children's learning in history, geography and science this term and our CST of 'Stewardship of God's Creation'.


Land: In science children will be continuing to learn about plants and their uses. They will learn about what plants need to grow and what plants are native to which climates. This will link with geography learning to identify where they may find the plants. In geography, children will be learning about the continents; they will be able to name them all and talk about each one individually.


Sea: Children will also be learning about the oceans in geography. They will be able to name all of them and locate them on a map. During vehicle work, children will consider ways to protect the oceans and seas from damage that humans are causing - linking to CST. Children will then use ideas collected to create a campaign to raise awareness with their peers. 


Sky: In history, children will be learning all about the first flight; from the Wright Brothers and Amelia Earhart to Amy Johnson. They will be able to note the significance of these developments in history and will be able to talk about how this has impacted the present. During vehicle sessions, children will be making their own paper aeroplanes to race in the hall and will be making informative posters about each significant individual.


We hope to have a visitor into school to talk to us about flying aeroplanes... Watch this space!
