This half term our class topic is "Into The Woods".  Come along and find out what we will be learning about over the next six weeks...


goldilocks and the just one bear.jpgOur English work will be based around the picture book "Goldilocks and Just the One Bear" by Leigh Hodgkinson. We will write our own stories based upon her story.



In Maths we will be continuing with addition and subtraction then moving onto fractions (halves and quarters) before moving onto multiplication.

Science and Geography

Our science and geography work will be learning about the seasons and the different weather patterns we experience within the seasons.  We will also have our Summer visit to Marshall's Arm to observe how the area has changed since our visits in Autumn and Spring.

Have a look at our "Into the Woods" topic web to find out more about what we will be up to this term!

Year 1 Routine

In the morning, we will have English and Maths and Phonics. Class assemblies will take place in the classroom. In the afternoon, we will be focusing on our topic, science, computing and PE.  Children are asked to wear PE kit to school on these days. No PE kit is to be kept in school. Mrs Holden's P.E days are Monday and Wednesday and Miss Barrow's P.E days are Tuesday and Wednesday.

We love reading in Year 1!  We will begin the year by ensuring that each child is still in the habit of reading at home at least three times a week.  Reading is the foundation of all learning and your child will really benefit from regular reading with an adult at home.  The class teachers check reading diaries each week.

We are looking forward to an exciting and busy term.

Mrs Holden, Miss Barrow, Mrs Simpson and Mrs Caliskan
