Year 1

Autumn 1/2 – Memory Box

Can you remember being small? Being a baby and learning to crawl? This topic will look back on special occasions in the children’s lives and help them to get an understanding of the past.

In this topic the children will be learning about the changes that happen as they grow up and about similarities and differences between their lives today and the lives of others in the past. The children will create a personal memory box to store cherished memories in.

Spring 1/2 – Moon Zoom

In the words of Buzz Lightyear this term we will be travelling ‘to infinity and beyond’. The children will be exploring the planets in the solar system and people travel to them. They will able to look closely at the stars in our planetarium that will be coming to Northfield. They will be learning about the team work involved in getting the first team of astronauts to the moon. As part of this topic they will explore what life needs to survive and why other planets don’t have humans and animals on.

Summer 1/2 Enchanted Woodlands

The Enchanted Woodland – If you go down to the woods today you’re sure of a BIG suprise!

Foxes and badgers, voles and mice, beady -eyed owls in the swaying tree tops. Beneath the leaves are tiny footprints… animal or imp? You decide!

Deciduous or evergreen? What can you find? Can you match a lead to its tree? Can you match a petal to its flower?

Let’s build a den, stick by stick and branch by branch. Or we could make a teeny tiny home for a woodland fairy?

At last its time to rest by the woodland fire, listening to stories and toasting our sweet, gooey marshmallows.
