Firstly, welcome to Year 1!
I hope you all had a relaxing summer and the children are ready for the new school year, which is full of exciting activities and discoveries. As usual we are looking forward to working together in partnership with parents, so if you have some spare time this term, please come and join us – please speak with me to arrange a mutually convenient time. This term, our topic of study will be "Cracking Ideas". As part of our topic, we will be focusing on non-fiction writing using a range of texts to create our own information book about inventions. Reading stories such as Traction Man (by Mini Grey), will aid us in designing and creating storyboards using our own inventions. Keeping in line with the rest of the school, we will also investigate how common inventions such as the car, telephone, and computer have changed since the 1950s.
The 1950’s will also feature in our Art and P.E lessons, where we will be inspired by artists and musicians of the time.
Be sure to check out our termly newsletters where you will find more information about the learning taking place in school.
If you have any questions or queries regarding school issues then please do not hesitate to contact me. Many thanks for your continued support.
