Year 1 – Armadillos and Snow Leopards

Year 1 – Armadillos and Snow Leopards

  • Long Term Plan Year 1 2019/20


1 Armadillos are taught by Mrs Alvey and supported by Mrs Grayston and Mrs Blunden.

1 Snow Leopards are taught by Miss Spalding and Mrs Wynne.  Miss Spalding teaches Monday to Wednesday and Mrs Wynne teaches Thursday and Friday.  They will be assisted by Mrs Clarke.

Year 1 is the first year in Key Stage 1 and the children are learning to work more independently. The classroom environment is set up in a similar way to Upper Foundation Stage, allowing access to continuous provision for learning.

Both classrooms have exciting reading areas where children can read quietly and re-tell stories using the puppets. In addition to this, there are writing areas to explore and consolidate a range of writing genres.

We have different areas of learning including a Science/investigation area, Small World and Role-Play. There are also designated Art and Design Technology areas.

Here are some of our areas of provision that enhance learning:

Autumn Term 1 Theme – All About Me.

This half term we are learning all about me.  In science this will be naming body parts and finding out about the five senses.  In history, we will talk about the children as babies or young infants and what they can do at the different stages of growth.



PE will start week commencing 21st September 2020 and will be outdoors.                                                This half term Snow Leopards PE day is every Tuesday and Armadillos PE day is every Thursday.        The children will be required to come to school wearing their PE kit for the full day.                                      If your child wears earrings please remove these at home or provide plasters for us to cover up earrings for safety reasons.                                                                                                                                                      Many thanks for your ongoing support.

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
