Welcome to Y1EJ


Welcome back!

I hope that you enjoyed the Easter holidays and that everyone received plenty of Easter eggs!


This half term our new topic is Enchanted Woodland; as part of this new topic we will be going on a school trip to Squirrel Wood Forest School. We will also be taking a walk around the school’s grounds to explore the wildlife and well as visiting Bunting’s Wood.




In Geography and Science we will be:

  • Identifying different woodland animals, birds, insects, trees and flowers
  • Investigating plant growth
  • Investigating changes that occur throughout the seasons



Wherever possible, we will link Maths to our topic.

We will be learning to:

  • Count forwards and backwards using numbers to 100
  • Position, direction and rotation
  • Count in multiples of 2s, 5s and 10s.
  • Multiplication and arrays
  • Capacity and weight
  • Addition and subtraction number sentences using counting on and counting back
  • Measuring length and height
  • Solving missing number sentences
  • Telling the time



This half term we will be looking at the following books:

Stick Man by Julia Donaldson



 Whilst exploring these texts we will be:

  • Writing instructions

  • Looking at characters’ thoughts and feelings
  • Writing letters
  • Retelling stories
