YEAR 1Mrs Allom, Mrs Commons and Mr Lyon
Autumn Term 2019
A big warm welcome back to Year 1. We hope you all had a wonderful summer.
Our Autumn Term begins with the topic ‘Our Local Area’. We will look at buildings and houses and how they have changed over the years. We will have a walk out to see what we can see.
Our Science work will be materials and we will be looking at what things are made of and their properties.
Maths will be a combination of number work, adding and taking away, shape and measuring.
There will be lots of phonics work going on in our Read Write Inc lessons, as well as lots of games in class. We will also have English lessons and will begin with work on fairy tales. If you have any, we would love to read them in class.
We look forward to working with you and your children. If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to come and speak to us.
