In Year 1, we start by investigating ‘Terrific Traditional Toys’, creating our own version of some of them during our lessons, comparing them to our own, and then, taking an exciting visit to the Bethnal Green Museum of Childhood. In Maths we look at ways of recording our favourite toys and pets through tallying and bar charts.
In the Spring term we go deep ‘Into The Woods’, exploring the woodland habitat and animals around the school. We also find out about different homes, then and now and spend a day enjoying Valentines’ Mansion. We get creative and investigate ways to make 2D and 3D shapes.
Our Summer term is full of ‘Animal Magic’ from farm animals to safari animals. We finish the year with a magical visit to the zoo. In Maths we use lots of language for sequencing as we give directions for moving around the school and the zoo and instructions for looking after our pets to our friends.
