 Spring Term Topic

’A long time ago’

Our aim is to provide the children with a stimulating and enriching learning experience across the curriculum. This may include meeting special visitors, trips in and around the local area as well as further afield and some outdoor learning experiences.

‘A long time ago’ has a History focus, however the children will still have aspects of Art, Science and Geography taught to provide them with a rich and engaging curriculum experience in school. We will also be continuing to provide the children with Music lessons once a week that focus on playing tuned and un-tuned instruments, in particular dynamics and pitch.

The children will be developing their knowledge and understanding about history as a whole, why it is important and why we learn about the past. The children will be comparing and describing different objects and artefacts from the past. Also the children will learn about significant events that have happened in the past that have helped to shape the world that they live in today. 


Year 1's Big Questions

1. How do we know about the past if we cannot remember?

2. Why have objects changed over time?

3. What would it be like to have dinosaurs living in today's world?

Writing is a fantastic way for children to express their thoughts, creativity and uniqueness.

It is also an essential way in which children learn to organise ideas and to help them become better readers.

The pdf document attached below is a helpful tool for parents and carers to use at home to help their children's writing progress and develop even further.

The activities suggested in the booklet can be used and applied across all year groups, not just in Year 1.
