Year 1

Teacher: Mr. Bowness

Class name: Ash Class

Current topic: 'Space - Above and Beyond'

This term we are going to be very busy! Our topic is all about outer space and we will be using this as a focus for each subject area.

There is a space dragon on the loose! We don't know what planet it has come from or why it is here on Earth, especially in Little Sutton, but we are going to find out. It is time to investigate.

In English we will be continuing our love of Talk for Writing, exploring a series of non-fiction genres around our space topic. As a class we will be imitating and innovating high quality texts and then inventing our own with our amazing ideas.

In Maths we will be focusing on:

  • Addition and subtraction
  • Place value (within 50)
  • Multiples of 2, 5 and 10
  • Measurement: length, height, weight and volumne.

In Science we will be working scientifically to -

  • Ask simple scientific questions
  • Use simple equipment to make observations
  • Carry out simple tests.

We will be learning about the order of the planets in our solar system, the distance between them and the temperatures on each planet. We will also carry out a rocket investigation.
