Life in Year 1
What an incredible time the children have in Year 1! It is the year that the children really start exploring the wider world around them. We visit the local shops, find out about different types of local houses and we even go on the children’s first ever school coach trip to the Weald and Downland Museum. Year 1 is a big step for the children as we ask them to take more responsibility for themselves and to be more independent. They are introduced to whole class lessons and more directed learning early on in the year so it is a challenge but every year we are amazed at the incredible progress that the children make and it truly sets them up for a wonderful future at Glebe. Year 1 really takes the children on an incredible journey and we see it as a privilege that we are there to share that with them.

Spring Term Topic 2020: 'Home Sweet Home!'
This term’s topic is Home Sweet Home! As you can imagine (and have probably worked out already!), we are looking at different types of homes in the local area, comparing them with homes from around the world and those from the past. We really want the children at this age to think not only about themselves but also to realise and to think about how other people live as well.
Below you will find information about what we plan to cover across the different areas of the curriculum. We really try to connect all of our learning whenever we can to make it more meaningful and purposeful and so you will see that lots of our learning is in some way connected to our homes topic.
