Welcome to Year 1 at Derwent Road. Please find below information about your child's learning topics this half term, including learning logs and topic leaflets. Please see our specific class pages for photos and information about each classes individual learning journeys.
This half term our topic is 'Polar Bears and Penguins'. In English we will be reading and writing a range of texts based on 'cold places' themed stories including instruction writing, alphabetical order and poster writing. In Science we will be learning about the changing seasons and their associated weather, as well as learning about different materials. In Art we will be creating our own Arctic inspired collage and in Computing we will be learning about algorithms and programming programmable toys. In Maths we will be learning about numbers to 20 and looking at how we can add and subtract these numbers. We will also be looking at length and height and shape and pattern. In Geography our learning will be focused on the Arctic and Antarctica and how these places are different to where we live.
