Year 1 Information

Autumn Term

In Year 1 this half-term we will embark on an exciting adventure with our new Superhero friend, Traction Man and his trusty pal, Scrubbing Brush! We will be describing ourselves, our friends, our favourite toys and Traction Man himself. In History we will be finding out about a range of toys from the past and the present before inventing and creating our own moving toy. In Science we will go on a mission to explore materials by designing a waterproof suit for Traction Man. We will finish our superhero journey by making our own tie-dyed capes and planning a superhero party! What a busy time ahead!

We are keen for parents to support the children’s learning at home as much as possible. To help with this we produce Topic Overviews for each term outlining our main topics.


Please download our Information Booklet to find out more about the routines and expectations in Year 1. You may also wish to take a look at the Y1 Curriculum Map, which shows you the topics we will be covering in different subjects over the course of the year. Please talk to us if you would like more information.
