Year 1 Curriculum Overview

Year 1 Spring Newsletter


A Happy New Year to you all! Hope you had a lovely Christmas. Welcome to our spring term newsletter.

This term is going to be a busy one!  Our topic is ‘On the Farm’. We will investigate farm animals and classify them into mammals, amphibians and birds. We will find out about life on a farm, where the farm is located and the difference between the farm today and the farm in the past.

In literacy this term, the children’s learning is based upon a fictional book called ‘Stay’. We will be writing our own version of the story and we will write instructions to make biscuits for the main character. After half term, we will be looking at traditional tales. We will be linking the book ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ to our topic ‘What Grows on the Farm?’  


We will continue to build on our number and place value knowledge in maths, and we will begin addition and subtraction within 20. 

We will continue to have sports coaches on a Tuesday this half term, so please make sure your child has correct kit; black shorts, white t-shirt and pumps.   Please can all clothing be labelled with your child’s name.

In order for your child to progress with their reading and spelling we advise that you read with them every night for 5 minutes, it really does make a huge difference.

Thank you for your continued support.  If there are any questions about this term, please do not hesitate to contact us.
