Dear Olive Class Parents and Carers,

Welcome to Year 1 Olive Class! We hope you all had an enjoyable and restful summer holiday. Please take a look below at what we are planning to do this term.

 Autumn Term 1  2022

This term our topic is called Who Am I? How Have I Changed? Through P.S.H.E., English and History we will be focusing on how unique we are how we have changed since we were babies and what we can  now  do. In science we will be exploring the environment using our senses.  In Art we will be looking closely at our facial features and practising our drawing skills using different materials. We hope to show you our Art Gallery later on this term. 

Take a look below at our Curriculum Map to see all the exciting things we will be experiencing this autumn term 1.

Best wishes 

Rebecca Dawkins and the Year 1 team.

  • Please ensure your child comes in wearing sports clothing appropriate for indoor and outdoor P.E. on these days e.g. tracksuit bottoms, sweatshirt or hooded top and trainers or plimsolls.
  • Earrings and other jewellery must be removed for P.E. and long hair tied back. If your child cannot remove their own earrings ,please remove these for your child before school on P.E. days.
  • They also need to bring a bottle of water into school every day and a sunhat in hot weather. We have a class drinking fountain which they can use to refill water throughout the day.


Curriculum Web Autumn Term 2022


Reading with your child for even a few minutes every day helps them to develop their love of books and reading- as well as their confidence in learning in other subjects. Please encourage your child to read  their ereading book regularly and bring in their reading record to school every day. You may like to write briefly in their reading record to let us know how they get on at home. Your child will eventually be choosing a book from class to share at home and a book from our school library.
