St Michael's CE Primary


This year the classes have been named after different designers. We have picked Antoni Gaudi as our class name as he was a terrific designer, architect and artist. We have been lucky enough to learn about his different mosaic techniques that fill gardens and buildings all over the world, and then trying them out for ourselves. We have also studied the phenomenal cathedral in the heart of Barcelona, The Sagrada Familia. Creating our own stain glass windows inspired by Gaudi's exciting designs was a treat for us all.

Year 1 Curriculum Map 

Autumn 2 

Please see below what Year 1 are learning this term.  

English - 

We are studying two books this half term...


We are working hard on understanding the order of the stories, to then sequence using pictures and key words. We develop this by then using adjectives and similes to describing the characters in the books. These skills are then transferred into the writing the perfect sentence using capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. 

Maths - 

This term in maths we have introduced adding to ten. This has consisted of understanding the part-whole model and what each symbol means. We are also focussing on number bonds to ten to improve our speed and mental maths. We have loved making maths as practical as possible! 


Topic - 

The Magic Toy Maker has been introduced this half term to explore the history of toys and how they have changed and developed. We have adored our history lessons so far and have been so interested in the types of toys our grandparents may have used. We have also been making our own toys out of clay, as done hundreds of years ago.
