Autumn 1.


Our famous person this term is the author and illustrator Oliver Jeffers. 

Our key question is - What Can I Learn From A Story? 

Our concepts are - Choices, Creativity and Inspiration.


We will be using 2 of Oliver Jeffer's books as our key texts this term - Stuck & What We'll Build.  From these we will develop our writing skills for narrative and poetry.   We will continue to use Power Maths as our Maths scheme in school, this term we will focus on numbers to 100 and our skills for addition and subtraction.  In Science we will be looking at materials and specifically the suitability of materials for a purpose.  RE is all about inspirational people; we will learn what it means to be inspirational and about some of the inspirational people in the Bible.  The Computing unit is all about the uses of technology, where we will be thinking about how we use IT beyond school in our every day life.  In Art this term, we will be learning about Oliver Jeffers as an illustrator and learning how to copy his style.  We will also compare the way he draws people to the style of another illustrator.  The Music topic is pitch and we will learn to recognise high and low sounds and compare these to loud and quiet.


Author of the Month.

Every month we pick a different author. By the end of Year 1 the children would have listened to stories or  poems by 10 different authors. They would have experienced 10 authors in F2, then in Year 2, they learn about another 10 authors. This opens our children's eyes to different authors and genres.

September - Oliver Jeffers

October - Anthony Browne
