Year_1 Autumn 1 Curriculum Topics
Our maths focus this half term will be counting to 30, recognising numbers to 30 and writing them. We will also be adding and subtracting again using a number line. We will then look at shapes and their properties and number bonds to 10 (5 + 5 = 10 ) (6 +4 = 10).
Our first science topic will be seasonal change and we will be learning the months of the year and the different seasons. We will begin our first science topic in Autumn where we will collect leaves in different places and create a graph to show the most leaf fall.

PE will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays. On Thursday it will be with Mrs Wright. Please ensure children have a PE kit with named items of clothing in on the days it is PE. We will be covering a mix of gymnastics, dance and games.
