Our Learning


Our overarching topic for this term is 'Who am I?'. This will allow the Year 1 team to really get to know the children's individual personalities and ensure they feel a sense of belonging here at Vaynor.


In English, the children have been using actions to learn and retell the story 'The Gingerbread Man'. We have been using our phonic knowledge to spell keywords and write simple sentences with finger spaces and full stops. 

Our continuous provision activities have also linked to our Gingerbread Man topic.


Our Maths focus this term will be 'Number'. This will include: representing single-digit numbers, ordering and sequencing and counting in different steps. We have lots of fun this term and use practical resources to support our learning. In Autumn 2, we will be moving on to addition and subtraction and using our place value knowledge to support our calculations.


In Art, the children have been exploring the artwork of Andy Warhol. The children evaluated various pieces of Warhol's artwork and discussed them with their peers using technical vocabulary, commenting on colour, line and texture and also how the pieces make them feel.

The children will then practise their art skills before creating their final masterpiece in the style of Andy Warhol's artwork.
