Look at what we do in Year 1

Autumn 1

Once upon a town

During this topic the children have enjoyed reading a range of traditional stories and discussing their favourite characters. They acted out scenes from the ‘The gingerbread man’ and learnt actions to help retell the story. They wrote their very own ‘gingerbread man’ stories using lots of great adjectives to make their stories interesting. They baked gingerbread biscuits and made wonderful masks for characters from this story.


In Geography the children learnt how to create a map for a traditional character. They learnt how maps have symbols and we can use a compass to help find North, South, East and West.
