Newsletter - 27th September 2019


 Welcome to the year 1 page! Year 1 is a really important year in your child's education, as they move away from the Early Years Foundation Stage and onto the National Curriculum. We have developed our curriculum to make it highly creative and we link to fantastic high quality texts that are really exciting to read.

The Year 1 Team

The teachers in Year 1 are Ms Andrews (Year Lead), Mrs Leeson and Miss Young. We are supported by Ms Mensa, Mrs McEwen, Ms A, Ms S, Ms Harris ( Friday only), Mrs Ahmed and Mrs Patel.

What we are learning this term

Please see our curriculum map to see our learning for this term. Our topic for We Are Historians is the Great Fire of London. 

In Reciprocal Reading we have read the book The Railway Children retold by Susanna Davidson.  We discussed what it would be like to travel on an old steam engine and we predicted where the train might be travelling to.


 We have been comparing what it was like to work in a bakery in 1666 and this had helped us build on our vocabulary linked to the Great Fire of London.

 Our maths teaching follows the overview below:

In science we have been going on a nature walk around the school. We found many different types of plants growing. We will be learning all about plants this half term.
