A U T U M N  T E R M and new year 1's! How exciting :D Hope you're all as excited as me! I know this year is going to be fantastic and I am so looking forward to getting started on our amazing journey through year 1. 

This term is super exciting as we find our feet in our new classroom and start to SOAR  through our learning. Our first topic of the year will be HORRIBLE HISTORIES: A journey through Britains historical periods. We will be learning about the the Great fire of London, King Henry VIII, the plague, the Tudors, Victorians, the Royals and how we became modern britain. We also have an amazing trip planned to Tatton park for 'life in a Victorian house'. We will spend the day dressed as Victorians and take on all the tasks they would of had to back then! (They will sleep all weekend after this :D) In topic we will look at all things history, learn about England and the United Kingdom in Geography, take on ghastly science experiments, become Picasso's in art, get our hands glued up with some D.T and do some fantastic outdoor learning with forest schools!! 

In Literacy we will be learning all about FAIRYTALES. our main focus will be the Three little pigs, Little red riding hood and Hansel & gretel. In this term the most important things we will be working on is forming our letters correctly and writing in sentences. We will also start to look at beginning our sentences with capital letters and ending them with full stops. Being able to spell (and read) our high frequency words (HFW) is also a target for the children this term. These words are added into the files section of this page; we will practice these alot at school but any extra practice you could do at home would extremely benefit their progress!

In Maths we will be looking at place value and undertsanding our numbers to 20. Once we understand the basics around which way our teen numbers come and why, (we learn that the 1 is at the front because it tells you how many tens are in the number eg 14 = 1 ten and 4 ones) we will move onto adding and subtracion.

PE will be on a Wednesday and a Friday, so please make sure kit is in school for both of these days.
On a Wednesday the children will be learning the basic skills and movements with Mr Greatbanks and on a Friday the children will be learning Dance with Miss Atherton.  

Dates for our Autumn term family learning and celebration assembly will be out shortly. 

As usual, my door is always open so please feel free to come and speak to me whenever you need-see you around school! :)
