Autumn 1

Autumn 1 in Year 1




Throughout this term, the children in Year 1 have been focusing on the stories of The Rabbit Problem and Peter Rabbit.  We began by exploring the story of The Rabbit Problem and used our retrieving skills to identify what happened to the rabbits in each month of the year.  We were introduced to adjectives and practised using these to describe the scarecrow from the story.  We then explored the story of Peter Rabbit and made some predictions about the characters and events in the story.  We sequenced the events of this story and planned, edited and retold the story of Peter Rabbit in our own words. 



This term, Year 1 have covered a range of topics including:

  • Number and Place Value
  • Length and Weight
  • Addition and Subtraction



Year 1 practised their balance and agility skills this term in PE.  We explored different ways of using our bodies to balance, such as only allowing two or three body parts to touch the floor and walking along equipment and apparatus without losing our balance.


Throughout this term, the children in Year 1 have been focusing on their homes and local area through our topic 'Home is where the Heart is'.  We began by looking at the seven continents that make up our world, locating these on a map of the world, and to help us with this, we learnt The Seven Continents Song.  We then looked at our country, the United Kingdom, locating this on a world map, and then identified the four countries that make up the UK and their capital cities.  We thought about the features and the characteristics of the countries within the UK, including their flags, national flowers and their national Saint.  Following this, we explored our local area and described the place we call home.
