Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back to Olive Class Year 1. We hope you all had a lovely half term break. Thank you for coming to the viewing of our Portrait Gallery. We thought the portraits were all masterpieces! This term our topic takes us into the season of winter. We will be observing the changes in the weather and how animals (including humans!)and plants adapt to colder, darker weather. We will also be exploring stories which encourage us to ask questions beginning with "How?" "Why?" "Who?" "Can you explain?" and other question words. We are also looking forward to preparations for Christmas time.  


Best wishes,
Rebecca Dawkins and the Year 1 team.
