Autumn Term 2017

Welcome to Year 1! For the first part of the Autumn term we will be settling children into routines and building on from the learning that took place in Reception.

Our topic this half term is Houses and Homes. We will be learning about different types of houses including those from the past as well as those from different countries. We will look at houses in the local area and hopefully visit a house from a historical period. This also links nicely to our Science topic about materials. We will explore and investigate the properties of materials and think about which materials are best suited to a particular job.

Our English topic is Fairy Tales. We will be reading and enjoying a range of traditional tales and exploring them through lots of creative ways such as drama.

Children will also begin the Read Write Inc. scheme – more information will follow.

We hope this will be a successful and enjoyable start to the year!
