Year 1 - Term 4
 We have two Learning Journey themes this term:

'We're off on an Island Adventure!'
Here are some of the things we will be learning this term.


Our English will be linked with our island learning journey and the children will read 'Grandad's Island'. They will ask and answer questions and make predictions around the text. The children will also develop their descriptive writing whilst describing the island.

This learning journey will allow the children to use maps to find the UK and other countries, explore how to travel to the island of Coll, to think about what life on the island may be like and to use map symbols and compass points.

The children will also make an Easter card using moving parts. 


In PSHE we will be exploring ‘Healthy Me’ where the children will learn about how to develop a healthy lifestyle and stay safe.



The children will learn what season is, the current season and the changes that occur. They will make predictions about the weather and explore how different weather will affect what choice they make. We will also explore the changes in daylight hours and continue to develop our class bar chart to represent this data throughout the year.  

This term the children will be continuing to develop their skills with a keyboard as well as learning how to copy and paste images.  We will be using these skills to create a greetings card.


We will focus on dance and netball this term.
