Year 1 Curriculum - Spring Term 2



This half-term we will be revising number addition and subtraction within 20. 

Then we will move onto learning about number place value within 50. This will focus on counting forwards and backwards from 50, representing numbers to 50, one more and one less than a number up to 50, comparing and ordering numbers up to 50. We will also be focusing on counting in 2s and 5s.

Our core text this half term is The Gift of the Sun.


We will be writing poems focusing on plants and flowers, as well as instructional texts on how to plant a seed.


These are some of the key sills we will be teaching in Writing:

  • Rhyming words
  • Common exception words
  • Forming letters correctly
  • Leaving spaces between words
  • Using capital letters and full stops


In Reading Pupils will be taught to:

  • apply phonic knowledge and skills as the route to decode words
  • respond speedily with the correct sound to graphemes (letters or groups of letters) for all 40+ phonemes, including, where applicable, alternative sounds for graphemes
  • read accurately by blending sounds in unfamiliar words containing GPCs that have been taught
  • read common exception words, noting unusual correspondences between spelling and sound and where these occur in the word
  • read words containing taught GPCs and –s, –es, –ing, –ed, –er and –est endings
  • read other words of more than one syllable that contain taught GPCs
  • read words with contractions [for example, I’m, I’ll, we’ll], and understand that the apostrophe represents the omitted letter(s)
  • read aloud accurately books that are consistent with their developing phonic knowledge and that do not require them to use other strategies to work out words
  • re-read these books to build up their fluency and confidence in word reading.
