This term...

We shall begin the new school year by looking at the thought-provoking story The Colour Monster, where we will explore different emotions. We will then be joining the rest of the school in an exciting whole-school topic based on Oliver Jeffers' Here We Are. In History we will be looking at the topic of families briefly before exploring the wonderful world of toys, old and new. Science will take us on a journey through the different seasons and our Art and Music will be linked to these topics. We will be developing our understanding of place value in Maths, before adding and subtracting numbers using different strategies. RE work will focus on the Christian Creation story, where we will discuss how people should take care of our world. This follows on beautifully from the Here We Are project and also ties in nicely with our PSHE work. Our sentence-writing, phonics, spelling, handwriting and grammar work will be inspired by rich story texts and, as ever, we aim to promote a life-long passion for reading. Phew - what a lot to fit in! We look forward to a busy term ahead. 


  • Children should come to school in PE kit on Wednesdays and Fridays. All PE will take place outside so please be prepared for cold weather. 
  • Please ensure your child has a water bottle in school. 


Look at our beautiful display for the start of term... We're Flying High in Year 1!
