Year 1

Welcome to Year 1


Here you will find all the information you need to know about the goings on in Year 1. 


Our topic this term is 'Hot and Cold Places' this is a geography unit of work, comparing countries and looking at climates.   We will be discussing how travel, equipment, clothing and food is different in each place and what impact the weather has on people and places. 

This will be done through:


* Talking about similarities and differences

* Discussing issues that different climates have

* Using maps and on line sources


Throughout our learning, we will be considering key questions (listed below) and using our research and newly acquired knowledge to answer them. 



1. What does climate and temperate mean?  


2. What impact does the weather have on people and other living things?


3. Where in the world are these countries and how could we travel to them?


4. What are the similarities and differences between Polar and Arid climate zones?
