Dear Parents and Carers,


Many thanks for all your support this half term. We have enjoyed our topic about the traditional tale "The Billy Goats Gruff" very much. You will be able to see our amazing work in our Sharing Assembly on Thursday 28th February at 9.00a.m. in the Hall. We have also learnt about different settings and visited a real woodland at Cherry Hinton Hall where we made dens and explored the area.

This term our topic takes us into early spring. We will continue to monitor the weather and observe seasonal changes around us. Through History,Science and Drama, we will be finding out about the Great Fire of London and whether  it was "great" or not!

Best wishes,
Rebecca Dawkins and the Year 1 team.
