Autumn Term  Curriculum


In our English work we will focus initially on non-fiction, recognising the features of these books before writing our own information pages linked to the topic.

Our Science topic this term is entitled ‘Seasonal Changes’ where we will investigate changes in temperature, light and shadows as well as contrasting climates across the world!

As we near closer to December, Year 1 will be turning our attentions towards Winter and Christmas – writing letters to Santa and enjoying the classic story from Raymond Briggs ‘The Snowman’. We will also be busy preparing for our KS1 Christmas production which we will be performing to parents in the last week of term!
