Welcome to Holly Class!
Welcome to our Year One Class page! In Year One, we are very excited to be learning through play. We have many different areas in our classroom; maths, enquiry, phonics, art and workshop, construction, role play and outside provision. Every day we explore these different areas of the classroom and see where our learning takes us!

Summer Term Learning
During the Summer Term, the children will be exploring the Big Question of ‘Why go exploring?’ whilst our Global Theme is Global Neighbours. The children will compare similarities and differences between various parts of the world, including own setting, which closely links with our Geography objective of studying a small area of the UK and an area in a contrasting non-European country.
During Term 5, the children will learn all about Isambard Kingdom Brunel, who is a significant individual from the past, whilst studying the geography of Bristol. Brunel was a famous engineer whose designs changed the lives of many people by developing travel between places which has supported exploring.
During Term 6, the children will learn all about Christopher Columbus, who is another significant individual from the past, whilst studying the geography of the Bahamas. Christopher Columbus was a famous explorer and sailor who made landfall in what is now the Bahamas. Columbus and his ships landed on an island that the native Lucayan people called Guanahani. Columbus renamed it San Salvador.
Throughout this Topic, our brave-change maker skills are communication and critical and creative thinking. This means we will be participating in discussions and stating opinions in addition to listening carefully to others. We will also be focusing on developing exploratory talk to consider different viewpoints and ask relevant questions.
