Year 1 Curriculum Map

Treasure Islands

The world is a connected place, for thousands of years we have been building networks of trade across the land and sea. In this unit, we will explore how islands became increasingly connected and how they sold their resources to others. We will also look at the challenges of transporting goods across the seas and oceans and how this was threatened by nature and by people... pirates! 

We will be geographers and cartographers as well as artists and designers.

Green Fingers

We will be learning about plants and how important they are to our world. Plants are living things – they grow when we give them enough sunlight, food and water. Plants give us food to eat, clean air to breathe and materials to build our houses and furniture. We can use plants to make clothes and medicines, and to decorate our gardens. To fully engage with this unit, we will need to be scientists, geographers and international learners. How important are plants to our world?

Time Travellers

We will be learning about how people find out about the past, the clues we can uncover and how evidence tells us what happened in the past. We will be historians finding out about how past is recorded and represent. We will explore our own past and how we can find out more. Have much can you remember from your past? What can you find out?

A Day in the Life

We will be learning about many exciting jobs from different places and time periods in order to create our own imaginary community. We will need to be historians, geographers, musicians, designers and citizens of the world! What job would you like to do when you grow up?

The Earth our Home

All living things – plants, animals and people – have a home or somewhere to live that we call a ‘habitat’. A habitat can be huge like the ocean or small like a leaf. To survive, living things need to live in places that meet their needs. What do living things need to survive? How do different habitats provide for their needs? We will need to be scientists and geographers in order to answer these questions.

The Brain

In Brainwave: The Brain, we will be exploring the ways in which we can use our brains to learn lots of new and different things every day, enabling us to gain the knowledge, skills and understanding that we will need to become successful adults. By finding out more about how we learn, and how we can improve the way that we learn, we will be better equipped for meeting the many challenges ahead of us.

ICT: Learning Safely Online

Much of our Research and Recording activities rely on digital technology, but how do we know how to find the information we need to help our learning? How do we know if the information we find is true? We can use devices to communciate with people all over the world, but how do we know we are learning in a safe space? Have we chosen the most effective way to communicate? Is our message clear? 

Year 1 Curricular Targets

Please find attached the targets year 1 are working towards this year.  The work towards achieving these targets will be covered in school but you can also help your child by checking their homework and looking for evidence of their targets in what they do.  Also please ensure they read to an adult every night.
