Fury Class (Year 1)

Spring Term 2019

Our spring topics are ‘Superheroes’ and ‘Rainforests’.

In our Superhero topic we will have a chance to make superhero vehicles and programme Beebots! Our topic will end with a fun Superhero Day which will involve team work and problem solving activities.

In our Rainforest topic we will be learning about different species and types of animals such as reptiles and amphibians. In art we will be working with malleable materials which can be shaped by hand. We will be creating rainforest animal sculptures out of clay.

In English, we will be looking at a number of different texts including ‘The Magic Finger’ by Roald Dahl. We will have opportunities to write in a number of different contexts including; instructions, a diary entry and a poem. We will also be debating about and looking into animal hunting, which is the main focus of the story.

In maths, we will still be working on counting up in 2s, 5s and 10s. We will also be adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing up to 20 and then beyond. Shape and pattern will also be covered.

In PE we will be working on ball skills specifically linked to hand coordination. We will also be learning fundamental movement skills such as; skipping, galloping and jumping.
