Year 1 Curriculum Map 2021/2022

Discovery Time 2021

Here are some pictures of our amazing Year 1 children working
hard and completing some super independent work!

Christmas 2021!

The children in Year 1 enjoyed learning about and celebrating the Christian festival of Christmas! We enjoyed completing lots of fun, Christmas activities and we also had a visit from a very special guest… Father Christmas himself! On Thursday 16th December we had a Christmas party in our classrooms. It was so much fun! We all came to school wearing our fantastic party clothes and we played some party games like ‘Pass the Parcel’ and ‘Musical Statues’. We danced to some of our favourite songs and we also enjoyed some yummy party food. Take a look at some pictures below…

DT Spaceships 2021

The children enjoyed using different materials to create their own spaceships during our DT lessons. We tested the materials first to see which one would be the best for a spaceship. We then decorated our spaceships using lots of craft materials such as pom poms and foil. It was so much fun. Look at our amazing spaceships below. 

Road Safety 2021

As part of Road Safety Week, we had some special visitors in school. They were traffic wardens they talked to us about what they do to keep us safe on the roads. They also let us try out their bikes.

Anti-Bullying Week 2021

The children in Year 1 have enjoyed celebrating ‘Anti-Bullying Week’ this week. This year, the theme was: One Kind Word. To promote anti-bullying week, we came to school wearing odd socks for ‘Odd Socks Day’. It was so much fun! Have a look at some pictures of our odd socks below…

We also took part in the whole-school anti-bullying competition where we designed a jigsaw piece based on this year’s theme: One Kind Word. Have a look at or amazing designs below…

Remembrance Day 2021

The children in Year 1 enjoyed celebrating ‘Remembrance Day’.

 Kai said: “Remembrance Day is on November 11th”. 

Mia said: “On Remembrance Day, we remember the soldiers”.

Efeose said: “On Remembrance Day, we wear red poppies on our clothes”.

 The children all took part in a minute’s silence to remember the soldiers who fought for us in the war. We also did some amazing poppy artwork using water colours. Have a look at some of our amazing artwork below…

Marcus Rashford 2021

The children in Year 1 enjoyed learning all about the footballer ‘Marcus Rashford’ as part of our whole school theme. We learnt all about his life and the amazing things he has achieved. We talked about all the remarkable things he has done to help children in the community, especially recently during the COVID-19 pandemic! We created some amazing artwork of Marcus Rashford. Take a look below…

Alien Spaceship Crash 2021

On Monday 15th November, we discovered part of a spaceship on our field. It was broken into pieces. We drew pictures of what we saw and Miss Youldon and Mrs Houldsworth took them to the police. The police sent us a letter to ask us to help with the investigation and attached some pictures that the people of Moston had taken. See the pictures and the letter below. We decided to make missing posters to try and find the missing alien and we put them up around school.

Pizza Making 2021

The children in Year 1 enjoyed making their own yummy pizzas as part of our DT lessons! Firstly, the children designed their own pizzas. Then, we made our own pizzas, choosing the toppings that we would like to put on them. After that, we took our pizzas home to cook in the oven and enjoy. They were delicious! Then, we wrote instructions for how to make a pizza in our writing lessons.

Diwali 2021

We enjoyed learning all about Diwali and creating some Rangoli patterns on the playground! 

Have a look at what we created.

Messages of Positivity

In Team 3, we have started the year with a BANG! We popped a balloon every morning and inside the balloons were names of all the people in our team. Every day we celebrated the person who was in the balloon and made them feel super special. Even Mrs Kerton had her name in a balloon! Here are the children complimenting Mrs Kerton during her day. Team 3 said such lovely things and made Mrs Kerton's day.

Our Local Area

Year 1 recently completed some field work in the local area. They went on a walk to spot the main geographical features. The children are excited to write a recount to talk about their findings and you can also see the maps that the children designed!

Jigsaw Jack

The children in Team 4 have enjoyed meeting the newest
member of their class… Jigsaw Jack! Jigsaw Jack helps us
with our learning at school. He helps us to listen to our friends,
take it in turns to speak and use kind and positive words. We
have made Jigsaw Jack feel very safe and special in Team 4.

Our First Day!

Here are some photos of the children on their first day in Year 1. We all look super smart and ready for the year ahead!
