Year 1 Information
In Year 1 this half term we are diving into an undersea world of adventure! Join us as we become deep-sea divers and investigate life in the oceans. We will be identifying, describing and comparing fish and mammals in Science. Our writing will be based on exciting stories such as ‘The Secret of Black Rock’ and ‘Grandad’s Island’. Creating moving sea scenes and observational drawings of shells will be our focus in D&T and Art. In History, we find out about ‘Titanic’ and other famous ships. We have a fun-filled learning 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.

The children of Queen Emma remember
To honour all who lost their lives in WW1, every child in Queen Emma made a poppy to create a whole school art installation. Come to the top of the Atrium stairs and take a look.
Aliens love underpants!
We enjoyed the story ‘Aliens Love Underpants’ but then something strange happened.
The pants we made went missing! We looked around the school and asked questions to find out information. We are going to write news articles about what’s happened using time openers.
Footprints and a pair of pants were found. There were a pair of pants in the bushes! Pegs that were dropped.
Year 1 searched for clues outside and investigators reported back information from the office staff and Miss Stubbs.
Traction Man and Scrubbing Brush!
We have had such a busy half term in Year 1! We embarked on an exciting adventure with Traction Man and his trusty pet Scrubbing Brush! We wrote adventure stories and character descriptions in English, we investigated materials for Traction Man’s waterproof suit in Science and we became addition heroes in Maths! We loved exploring a range of toys from the past, lent to us by the Toy Museum in Cambridge. We cannot wait for some Space filled excitement next half term….
