Autumn 1 – Amazing animals 

Welcome to year 1 koala class page. We hope you had a lovely summer and are ready for lots of learning in Year 1!


In English we will be base our learning around three texts The Koala who could, The Tiger Who Came to Tea and Journey. These will fit in with our topic of animals. We will continue to work on our letter formation, finger spaces, capital letters and full stops.


We will be securing our counting and number formation, as well as exploring place value. We will be counting up to 50 and counting in 10s up to 100. We will be ordering and comparing numbers and finding one more/one less.


In science we will be learning all about animals; what they eat, where they live and types of animals. We will further this knowledge on our trip to Marwell zoo!

PE will be on a Monday with a PE coach- Please ensure full kit is worn and earrings removed

Weekly spellings will be set on Friday to be returned the following Friday

There will also be a choice of 6 topic homework – 3 to be completed over the half term!
