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.

Wimbledon Afternoon in Y1

The whole of year 1 had a lovely time outside on Friday afternoon. We enjoyed using the bats, balls and beanbags to play lots of different paired and team games. We also stopped for a break to have some strawberries and cream. It was delicious!

Grace Darling

As part of our topic work we have been learning about the life of Grace Darling and how she became famous. We worked in groups to act out the main events then put them altogether to re-tell the story.

Bean Planting

In science we have been learning about plants and what they need to grow. This week we all planted broad beans into plastic bags. We will watch them over the coming weeks and record their changes in our bean diaries.
