Year 1

Welcome to Year 1!

It's Autumn 2!

We hope that you have all had a wonderfully exciting and adventurous holiday and are now well rested and ready for the rest of the Autumn Term.  

We have lots of exciting things planned for this half term which we are sure you are going to enjoy!

Our Current Topic is - Enchanted Woodland 

What might you see when you walk through an enchanted woodland?

Can you match a leaf to its tree? Can you match a petal to its flower?

Let's build a den, stick by stick, branch by branch. Or we could make a teeny tiny home for a woodland fairy!

Then lets party down in the woods with Mr Fox and all his woodland friends. We'd better not get lost...let's leave a trail of conkers as we go.

At last it's time to rest and look at all that we have done. What will we hear whilst we're resting quietly?


What will we learn about this half term?

Our new topic "Enchanted Woodland" will have a Science focus. You will learn about the many interesting facts related to trees. You will measure them, learn which are evergreen and which are deciduous. You will also write information booklets about woodland animals and learn which live in woodland habitats and which live in their homes and local environment. In Art, we will draw and paint pictures of woodland creatures and in DT you will have chance to build a den for a woodland animal!

Excited yet? Get your wellingtons, let's go!
