Year 1 Long Term Plan 2021-22

Year 1 - Autumn 1 Overview and information for parents


This term our topic will be SUPERHEROES. We will look at what it takes to be a superhero and look at people in our community who are real life 'superheroes'. In Science will will explore our senses and in Design Technology we will be exploring mechanisms and making our own superhero book including pulleys and levers.

Toys through time

We will be finding out all about toys past and present.

Home Learning 

Here are some additional sheets for your child to do that have lots of questions following a similar format. These are good as they just need a bit of input and then they can complete the rest independently. Please do not feel you need to do all of these at all. They are just for you to use in place of any of the activities on Dojo. 

Year 1 Long Term plan


Summer 2

This term we are exploring Traditional Tales; we will be looking at well known stories such as Jack and the Beanstalk, The Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood. We will be using our topic not only to inspire our writing, but also our Design and Technology projects. We will be  designing a structure for the Three Little Pigs to live in! Hopefully we will use materials that are strong enough to keep out any pesky wolves!


Use the links below to find out more about the different topics we will be learning about this half term.
