Autumn Term 2021

Welcome to Year 1!

I hope you have had a wonderful summer and I am excited to hear about your adventures.

I am very much looking forward to our year together. In Year 1, we work hard and we have lots of fun doing it. To start with we will get to know each other and learn how Year 1 works. Last year’s class have written you a letter to help you to understand a bit more about what your time in Year 1 will be like.

In English we will be writing labels, lists and captions whilst looking at friendships and doing plenty of Antarctica related work for our exhibition.

In Maths we will be looking at counting accurately as well as adding and subtracting.

As you know our exhibition theme is ‘Seven Continents, seven classes’. Our continent is Antarctica with a focus on the explorer famous Captain Scott- work for this will involve lots of exciting things including: art, writing, poetry, dance, geography and history


PE- Friday (Autumn1 and 2)- School PE kits to be worn to school on this day.


Remember to check out the news page - it is updated weekly for topics, thoughts from the children and other important information.
