Year 1 Beech Term 5

Our topic is: Green Fingers


Our text this term is The Bog Baby. This is a magical story that sends a strong message about what it is like to really love something. From this the children will learn empathy and they will use talk to explore and develop their ideas. We will be writing in a variety of ways through both narrative and non-narrative forms.


In Year 1 we follow the Inspire maths programme which is based on the Singapore approach. It is a mastery curriculum with an emphasis on conceptual understanding. Through the use of concrete resources, pictorial representation and practise books the children develop their mathematical skills and concepts. Over the course of the term we will be exploring length and mass using non-standard units, picture graphs and counting within 40.


This term we will be looking at plants. We will be identifying a range of plants and flowers on our learning walks. We will be learning about the types of bark and leaves that the different trees have as well as what all plants and flowers need to have in order to grow.
