Year 1

Welcome to Summer Term 2 2015 

I can't believe we are already in the second half of this term and very soon the children will be moving up into Year 2. Our final topic is "Holiday" which I know the children will enjoy. We will be finding out about sea creatures and looking at why they are different to the animals we find on land. We will learn about the seaside towns in the U.K.; where we can fly from to go abroad and what a holiday looked like many years ago.

The curriculum newsletter is attached at the bottom of this page. Please don't forget to make your seaside scene and carry out the purple mash home learning activity.  

Dear Children and Parents,

Welcome to Summer Term 2015.

As you can see from the change in the weather, summer is arriving and we need to be ready for it. Our new topic is "On Safari" and we will be finding out lots about the mini beasts that surround us in nature.
The Summer term newsletter can be found below, it will give you more information on all the learning which will be taking place in the forthcoming weeks.  


Dear Children and Parents,
