Year 1 Autumn Term 1 “Our Local Area”

This term we will be looking at our own locality. We will begin by exploring our school grounds and the surrounding area through lots of outdoor learning, such as treasure hunts, blackberry picking, and a variety of environmental science and art activities. We will draw maps and learn how to follow a route on a simple map on our very own “Bear Hunt”!. 

We will also be venturing out on a walk to Playing Place. We will be observing land and building use, following a map and considering ways to improve the play park. We will visit the Post Office to buy stamps and post letters that we have written and addressed at school. Details to follow.

In Science we will be learning about our bodies, how we have changed since we were babies and how we use our senses to explore the world around us. We will sort and classify a variety of animals living in our local environment and we will investigate animal habitats around the school.


We will be taking part in Trelissick’s “Apple Weekend” by painting still life apples in the style of Cezanne. Our paintings will be exhibited at Trelissick Gardens rom 29th-1st Oct.
