KS1 Topic Plans

Spring Term 2020

This term we have been learning about what it’s like to live on an island in our ‘Island Home’ topic. We have read Mairi Hedderwick’s Katie Morag stories and explored the characters and settings, picking up clues about how people’s lives are different to our own. Using Google Earth, atlases and maps, we have been finding and naming the countries, capital cities and the seas surrounding the UK, as well as locating the island of Coll where the fictional island of Struay is based. We also learnt to use compass directions and directional language to read maps and plan journeys. In literacy, we have been planning and writing our own Katie Morag story and in science we have learnt all about different types of weather and made weather observations. 

 

In maths, we have been learning to tell the time and using different coins to but items from the 'Struay Post Office' in our role play area. We used coins and bar models to work out change from 20p.

Autumn Term 2019

In science, we have looked at things that we needed to survive when we were stranded on a desert island and the difference between adults and babies. To help us think about how we have changed since we were babies we had a very special visitor. The children really enjoying asking Mrs Scimeca about the things her baby son Enzo could do.  In our material topic we have looked at the properties of materials and why we use different ones for different things. We created our own magnetic games.
