Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome back, hope you all had a restful summer holiday and are looking forward to the new academic year.

This term our topic is ‘Famous Historical Figures’ with a focus on ‘Grace Darling’ and we will be using this throughout the curriculum:


English – we will be focusing on writing lists, captions and sentences.  Our reading objective is to focus on blending CVC words and revising phase 3 sounds.

Maths – during term one we will be covering objectives for Place Value within 10 and addition and subtraction within 10.  Also we will be practising writing our numbers correctly.

Topic – our D&T, History and Science lessons we will be linked to our weekly book with many fun activities planned including building lighthouses, fruit picking, investigating floating and learning about the past and present.

P.E. – Wednesdays and Thursday are the Year 1 timetabled P.E. days this term. Please ensure that your child has the required kit. 


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the office and I can arrange to meet you.
