Year 1

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 How can human’s negative behaviour impact the environment? whilst our Global Theme is Sustainable Environmental Development. The children will learn about the significant event of plastic being invented. They will discover what the advantages and disadvantages of plastic are and learn how we can make sustainable choices for the future. In Geography, the children will focus on a local area and how it has changed over time from an environmental perspective. They will learn about deforestation and the impact this has on the world. Throughout this topic, our brave change-maker skills are self-awareness an reflection and cooperation and conflict resolution.


Term 5 Learning Questions:


  • When/how/who invented plastic?
  • What is plastic used for?
  • How does it change overtime?
  • What is the impact on the environment?

Term 6 Learning Questions:
