Our Topic this half term is all about plants and growing. We are hoping to develop our outdoor spaces and to even grow some vegetables.
Have a look at the Topic web and the knowledge organiser and share these with your children so that they have can get curious about their learning upon their return.
In this half term we are learning all about words and how we use them in both writing and speech, we will be learning about the alphabet and the different kinds of letters such as consonants and vowels. We will be hearing and looking at lots of different stories and how words are used by authors to make stories, exciting, happy, and maybe even sad.
Spring 1 - What was it like in the 1950's
For this topic we will be looking at the 1950's and researching about toys, music and what it was like to be a child. We will be learning about Elvis Presely and other famous people from this time.
We will also be learning how to write in the past using ed endings for words.

Welcome back !
We are so excited to see you in Year 1. We hope you have had a lovely summer and can't wait to hear all about what you have been doing.
This term our topic is Building, we will be looking at building friendships in our new classes as well as building upon our previous learning. We will also be looking at what buildings are made of and why these materials are used.
We will spend the first couple of weeks getting to know you and finding out what you can do as well as what you like. We will be learning lots of facts about our class animals too!
Have a look at the photographs of your new classroom and we look forward to showing you around.
Things that you may find a little bit different......
1. Your teacher will pick you up from the drop off point on the school drive. After you have said goodbye to your parent/carer you will then walk to your classroom with your teacher.
2. You will line up outside the classroom and you will be given a squirt of hand wash by a grown up which you will rub into your hands. You will then be asked to go the sink and wash your hands. Only four children at a time will be able to do this, so we need to be patient.
3. You will need to sit at a table and not on the carpet.
4. At Lunchtime you will eat in your classroom and then go outside to play with the children in your class.
5. At home time your teacher will walk you around to the same collection point on the school drive, where your parent/carer will be waiting to pick you up and take you home.
