Welcome to Year 1 and the autumn term.
We have a very exciting term ahead of us! We are really looking forward to watching your children settle into Year 1 and take on those challenges of a new year. Our theme for this term will be ‘What a Wonderful World’. The children will be looking at animals and the world around us and we are looking forward to making the most of our forest school area to help the children understand this topic and also create some great autumn artwork. This will also support our learning in Science and Geography where we will be thinking about our local area and animals.
In Literacy we will be looking at a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry texts. We will be looking at familiar texts and stories that link to our theme, including some of the children’s favourites such as ‘The Snail and the Whale’ and ‘Tiddler’.
In History we will be thinking about the Royal family, weddings and celebrations. We will be having lots of fun exploring different materials in Art and Design Technology which will link to our learning about the Royals.
These are just a few of our many subjects that we will be covering this term. To see more, take a look at our curriculum leaflet lower down the page.
Please read regularly with your child and help them to learn their tricky words. Also comment in your child's diary each time you read with them. Reading books will be changed on a Monday.
Please continue to support your children to become independent and reflective learners.
If you have any queries please do pop in and see me at the end of the day or arrange an appointment via the school office.
