Welcome to Year 1
We would like to welcome you to our Year 1 page.
We have had a brilliant start to the new school year in Beach Hut, Rock Pool and Sandcastle Class. We are loving exploring our new classrooms and learning in our new shared spaces.
Our Autumn Term topic is ‘Childhood’. We will be comparing similarities and differences between our lives and those of children in the 1950s. We will be using a range of fiction and non-fiction texts to explore toys, food, school life and significant events, including the Queen's coronation.
Alongside this, we will be linking two mini topics, ‘Mix It’ and ‘Funny Faces and Fabulous Features’. Here we will be exploring the art of colour mixing and creating funky self-portraits using a range of materials, such as collage, sketching, pastels and digital media.
Take a look at our wonderful learning environments.
Reading and Writing
Encourage your child's love of reading by reading, listening and enjoying books together. Please read with your child at least four times a week using the reading books sent home from school and write a short comment about their reading in their Seesaw journal.
Please also practise the everyday words with your child by reading and writing them. Encourage your child to write them in as many different ways as you can - such as building them with magnetic letters, making them in playdoh or writing them using felt-tip pens, paint, colouring pencils, chalk or in sand.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch by email via the school office or by sending a message on Seesaw.
