Welcome to the Y1W class page!

Every day in Year 1 is a busy one, but always fun! We love learning and always work hard to be the very best that we can be.

This year, we have some really exciting topics for our learning! We learn about Science, History and the world around us. Our topics this year include:

  • It’s a Wild World! – Autumn Term
  • The Great Fire of London – Spring Term
  • All at Sea – Summer Term

We have made a great start with our learning this year. We are working hard to learn new sounds in Read Write Inc. to help us with our reading.


We use ‘Talk for Writing” to help us learn stories, using story maps and re-telling so that we can write them. We can then innovate (change and adapt) them to create our very own stories – just like real authors! So far this year our stories have included ‘Walking Through the Jungle’ and ‘Dear Zoo’ – we have loved learning about all of the different animals!


We enjoy practical activities to support our learning about number, measures and shape, and we love solving problems and explaining our ideas.

Working carefully to solve number problems in Maths!


Learning about and celebrating Eid with our friends!
