Welcome to Year 1
During Year 1, the children will enjoy a range of texts in English which are brought to life through drama, SPaG and writing sessions. The children will become more skilled in all aspects of Maths and will develop their understanding of numbers to 100 as well as their knowledge of shape, space and measure. In Science our topics are: ‘Animals Including Humans’, ‘Materials’ and ‘Plants’.
In History, we study ‘The History of Our School’, ‘The History of Toys’ and ‘The Seaside’. In Geography we study: ‘The Countries of the UK’, Human and Physical Features’ and ‘Routes and Maps’. In Year 1, we use a range of digital resources to teach the children how to code such using the Beebots. In addition, the children will gain experience of using a range of programmes such as: Microsoft Word and PowerPoint as well as Google Safe Search to further develop and enhance their computing skills.
A selection of the workshops and trips planned for this academic year will help to bring all of this learning to life. This Autumn, the children will take part in a workshop called ‘Discover Your Body’ led by the drama group, Perform. In the Spring term, to support our learning about life in the past, the children will visit Milestones Museum. To support our topic on Christianity the children will visit St Martins Church on Bourne Green as well as visit Nower Wood in the Summer term to support our Science topic: ‘Plants’. Throughout the year, the children will also take part in a number of dance, music and drama workshops, so watch this space!
One of the highlight’s of the year is our Christmas Production! In addition, the children will all perform a class assembly for you to enjoy. We will end our year with a Summer Fun Day and all of our memories throughout our time in Year 1 at South Farnham will be captured in our Yearbook.
We would like to thank you profusely for visiting our page and please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher with any queries throughout the year.

Your child will study a wide variety of topics as part of their curriculum studies at South Farnham School. Please see below details of the curriculum content that your child will study in Year 1. Whilst each class follows the same curriculum, there will be individualised delivery based on the needs of the class.
