Welcome to Year One!









In the Spring term our context will be 'Exploration'. We will be learning about the history of transport, looking at different explorers and the future of exploration. We will be investigating different materials and how we use them. We will also be designing our own transport along with creating our own fantasy island. 


Our key texts include: 

Little Wings

Wishing for a Dragon

The Way Back Home


We will have trips linked to these, including:

Croydon Aerodrome

London Eye

Plus a visit from an expert to learn about the Croydon Aerodrome and what it used to be like


Each day we will post a phonics, English, maths and context challenge for the children to do.
