Summer Term in Year 1 see us leave the prehistoric age behind and explore the exciting new topic of…

SuperHeroes!

We will begin by investigating the questions: Who are the superheroes in your life? Why are they superheroes? Are you a superhero and why? This is a topic that focuses on the hero in all of us; a fun topic that focuses on ourselves, our families, superhero animals, the super people around us who help us such as teachers, doctors, religious leaders, police and fire fighters - not to mention superheroes from fictional texts and real life superheroes from history.

We will think about how we can you bring out the superhero in ourselves, explore being the best we can be and what makes us unique and special. We will consider how we can help our bodies be super strong and healthy, our brains – super sparky and our actions – super helpful. We will draw self-portraits, take part in superhero training and hold a special superhero ceremony with medals and certificates!


As always, we will use a range of texts to support our learning such as Traction Man, Supertato, The Snail and the Whale and the Superhero ABC

In MATHS this term we will continue to develop our skills of addition and subtraction as well as revisiting place value and number recognition up to and across 100.We will also begin to understand fractions such as finding half and a quarter of a shape and number. We will investigate 3D shape and look a bit more closely at time. This term we will also touch on position and direction and explore multiplication and division using our x2 x5 x10 tables knowledge.

Our SUPER SCIENCE topic this term is ‘Ourselves’ where we will be learning fascinating things about our bodies and senses.  We will begin to understand that people change as they get older but often retain recognisable features. We will recognise some of the ways people change over time, using key scientific words to discuss these and be able to name parts of the body. We will understand that we have five senses and that we rely on these to make sense of the world. We will also learn that we hear sounds with our ears and that hearing is one of our senses. We will understand that we need our senses to help us explore the world and that often our senses work together to make that possible. Finally, we will observe what it is like to explore without sight.

Continuing with our Judaism focus, in RE we will explore the key concepts of the Torah for example, through the celebration of Simchat Torah, a Jewish festival, and the story of Moses as the great Jewish leader and teacher, and how the Torah or teaching is read in the Synagogue and symbolised in the home by the Mezuzah.
