Year 1 Curriculum Planning 2018-2019

We have started using the IB Framework to approach our teaching and learning this year. Our children have been keen to be involved in the planning and each term builds on their interests and ideas.

In Term 1 we explored ‘Who We Are’ with particuluar focus about our families. We used the book ‘Grace and Family’ by Mary Hoffman and explored our own families.



In Term 2 we decided that we would like to put on our own Pantomime. So, the children will be visiting the Hazlitt Theatre, finding out about the Pantomime traditions and planning and producing their own pantomime for their Christmas Show. Please find the planning below:

Pantomime Year 1 Walk Through

Term 3’s focus is ‘Up, Up, Up and Away’. Our planning can be found below. The topic will look at air, space and space travel.  This will be added to as the term develops and the children show further interests and ask more questions.Image result for up, up and away
