           Welcome to Year One


You can follow us on Twitter to see our learning in action! #tmssyear1



Summer 1: This half term year one are exploring the concepts of Change & Consequence leading into the essential question of: What would happen if the weather never changed?



In English we will be looking into stories based around different plants.  We will be exploring the story of Jim and the Beanstalk- an interesting sequel based on the traditional tale of Jack and the Beanstalk. We will also learn about the life cycle of a plant through the story Ten Seeds and finally we will relate our learning of weather and seasons with the beautifully illustrate book Season Come, Seasons Go : Tree.



In Maths we will exploring concepts such as time, money and measures. We will be identifying and setting time to o'clock and half past, identifying British coins and adding the values together. During the topic of measurement, we will use non-standard measures to measure length and height, we will also explore mass/weight and speed!  



In Geography we will be exploring weather and seasons and comparing weather around the world. We will be identifying continents and country's in order to find out where fruit is grown around the world and why! We will also learn about the equator. 



In Science we will be learning lots about plants! We will be learning about the life cycle of a plant (from seed to plant), the conditions for growing  seeds, what plants need to grow and survive, the different parts of plants and trees and the different jobs the parts do! We will also be exploring the school grounds to find out what different trees we have and the names of the wild plants growing in the fields!
