Welcome to Terms 1 and 2

Big Book of the UK

Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat, Where Have You Been?

Our World Knowledge Organiser

This term's theme is all about 'Our World' and our focus will be on the four countries that make up the United Kingdom. We will be learning to find the UK on a world map and also beginning to identify some of the surrounding seas. In Year 1, we will be learning about the capital cities for the UK countries and also some of the most famous landmarks in each country. We will be using this theme to drive our learning in other areas of the curriculum such as art and DT. 



Choosing Learning

In year 1, we spend time in 'choosing learning'. In our classroom environment, we have lots of manipulatives and resources that we can access during our choosing learning time. These resources are there for us to extend our learning and thinking from whole class learning time. We also have key challenges that are changed weekly. These challenges are there to be completed independently to practise the key skills taught in the classroom. This means that we can choose when we complete this learning and can show these new skills independently.
