Autumn Term 1

Autumn 2019

We are very pleased with how quickly the children have settled and we are looking forward to a fantastic year of learning and loving school! The children are adapting well to our new routines in Year 1 and I have been very impressed with the children's Attitude to Learning already.

This term our main priority is making sure that all children are settled in and enjoying school. The children will know what the expectations are for Year 1. We expect every child to be the best version of themselves and their behaviour to meet the high standards of Be Ready, Be Respectful, Be Safe. Our classroom will be a challenging place for children to grow as learners, where they are happy to have a go and know we learn from mistakes.

Over the Autumn term we covered a range of themes.

Firstly we thought about ourselves and had;

  • A PSHE looking at emotions and how to keep safe ( wc 9.9.19)
  • An Art week looking at portraits (wc 16.9.19)
  • Two RE weeks looking at ourselves ( wc 23.9.19)
  • Three weeks of science looking at materials (wc 7.10.19)

We explored the books 'Wild' by Emily Hughes, 'The Selfish crocodile' Faustin Charles, 'All are welcome' by Alexandra Penfold and 'The three little wolves and the pig bad pig' in English.
