“Together We Dare To Dream Big”

Y1 Curriculum

Welcome to Y1’s class pages!

Summer term:

Our Year 1 team are so excited to start the year and welcome our children back into school. Your teachers are: Mrs. Morris, Miss Turner and Miss Heaton. 

Summer 1:

Our key subject driver will be geography, where we will be learning about the United Kingdom, its countries and capital cities.

We will also complete a week of music at the start of the half term.

In our non-intensive teaching, we will revisit previously taught learning across the curriculum.

We will be sending home knowledge organisers for music and geography, which can be used at home. If you would like to see what other subjects we will be covering, or look back at the year, please visit our curriculum pages.
