Dear Parents and Carers,


A Happy New Year to everyone! Thank you for coming to our Advent Day and Christmas Nativity Plays.  We are sure you will agree Olive Class were amazing dancing angels! indecision

 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 weather and  how the landscape changes. In Literacy and Drama, we will be finding out what "traditional" tales are and looking closely at the settings, characters and plot in specific ones.

Best wishes,
Rebecca Dawkins and the Year 1 team.

We learn phonics through Letters and Sounds. Please see the plan below.
