Welcome to Year 1! We have planned some exciting learning for this term. We would like to inform you about our topics this term; our Science topic is Weather and in Geography we will be looking at the British Isles. This term we are focusing on addition and subtraction within 20 and numbers to 50. We will continue to learn our number facts to 20, counting in 2's and counting in 10's. Please find below the Autumn jigsaw, which is an overview of what your child will be learning this term. 


Thank you for your support with your child's reading. Our expectation is that each child will read at least four times a week. Please continue to write in your child's reading journal. If you would like any tips on how to help with home reading please let us know, we would be thrilled to help! We will be sending out a homework pack after October half term.

Just a reminder that P.E. takes place every Tuesday afternoon .We expect the children to come dressed in their full kit in school on Tuesdays. 


Please do not hesitate to catch us at the end of the school day if you have any questions/problems.

Thank you so much for your continuing support.

Poetry Day

For Poetry Day we learnt the poem 'The Sound Collector'. When we knew it off by heart, we decided to use instruments to create some of the noises described in the poem. Check out our performance by clicking on the link below...
