ST PAUL'S YEAR 1Welcome back from
half-term break

After a well-deserved half term break, year 1 are excited to start their new topic ‘What if there were no aeroplanes?’ which has a History focus. The children will have the opportunity to look at how early flight was invented and how it has evolved over time by creating a timeline of events.
They will look at the lives of significant individuals in the past who have contributed to national and international achievements.
Children will be looking at the roles and jobs that people in the community have linked to flight- air hostesses, pilots, air ambulance crew. There is a possible opportunity to speak to real people about these roles.
Children will be discussing dreams and goals in relation to man's dream of flight and their own goals for the future.
Children will be coming up with questions to ask about how the first flights happened, how inventors created the first flight vehicles and how different it was in the past compared to now.
Understanding different cultural dynamics of people living in different countries around the world. To be able to respect different people, cultures and places around the world.
Commonwealth countries and showing tolerance for different people around the word.
Listening and responding.
Creativity- children will have various opportunities to create rockets, hot air balloons and aeroplanes from different materials.
They will be working as a team to gather information and create models and designs.

In Science, children will continue to observe and ask scientific questions about the world around them. They will also be performing and evaluating a number of scientific investigations.

In R.E., we will be looking at the story of Easter.

This half term we will continue to use our new PSHE scheme, Jigsaw with a focus on the topic ‘dreams and Goals.’ This will include looking at our achievements and successes and how to overcome challenges.

In Design and Technology the children will be designing their own rocket using a variety of junk modelling resources.

In English we will be reading some well-loved traditional fairy tales which include ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, ‘The Billy Goats Gruff’, ‘The Gingerbread Man’ to name a few. We will also celebrate Shakespeare week where the children will look closely at ‘The Tempest’ and world book day.

In Maths, we will be continuing to develop our understanding of numbers to 50 and looking at weight, length, height and capacity.

In Computing the children will be using the iPad to access the ‘scratch jr’ program. They will be learning how to input simple code and have an understanding of algorithms.
