Leighton Primary School

Year 1

Here you can find out the curriculum expectations for Year 1 and learn about what they will be doing this term.

Autumn term

For the first half of this term our topic is ‘Dinosaurs’. We will be learning about different kinds of dinosaurs, what they ate and how they lived. We will be pretending to be palaeontologists and we will be making our own dinosaur fossils. We are planning a trip to 'Fossils Galore'.

Next half term we will be learning about Africa. We will first learn about our local area and then we will be comparing it to different places in Africa.

During the first half term our book focus will be ‘Harry and the bucketful of dinosaurs’ and during the second half term we will focus on African stories such as 'Handa's surprise'. 

In maths we are learning to recognise, order and write numbers up to 100. We will be learning to add and subtract and to count on in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s.

In science we will be learning about the different parts of our body and our five senses. We will be naming and  finding out about different types of animals.
