Dear Parents and Carers,


Once again,many thanks for  your support this half term. We have all thoroughly enjoyed our topic about the Great Fire of London and have strong, differing opinions as to whether the fire was "great" or not! The children had great fun finding out about 17th century life and most of the class are pleased to be living in the 21st century! What the children learnt was reflected in the imaginative and high quality work produced for the homework festival. Well done Olive Class!

This term our topic takes us from spring into early summer We will continue to monitor the weather and observe seasonal changes around us. Through Science,Geography and Drama, we will be focusing on living things in our local environment and their habitats.

Best wishes,
Rebecca Dawkins and the Year 1 team.
