Welcome to Year 1,
I hope you have all had a lovely Summer and are ready for the start of a new school year.
The children have settled into their new class well this week and already have been working hard.
In year 1 this term our main topic will be toys from the past. Through this topic we will be studying both history and DT. We will have a visit from a living historian, have the opportunity to handle artifacts and create our own Jack in a box.
In Geography we will be looking closely at our local environment of Whickham and the school. We will be using field study skills to make observations of these areas.
In science we will be exploring animals including humans, learning songs and labeling parts of the body. We may also create our own monsters, eeeek!
All of this alongside daily Maths, English and phonics.
This is a very busy term, with lots of new people and new routines.
All of our ‘household’ messages re on the letter attached. If you have any queries please feel free to pop in.
I look forward to meeting you.
