Welcome back to the New Year! I hope you have had a lovely Christmas holiday and are ready to start back again. This term, we have a focus on History and our unit of work this time is called What's Changed. We will be looking at our own history, as well as the history of toys and where we live. In English we start by looking at the book, Paddington at the Palace, before creating a tour around London. In Maths we will continue working within 20 and extend this by looking at adding and subtracting within 20. This goes quite in depth and will make sure the children can justify their answers. In RE we are looking at Shabbat, a festive day from the Jewish faith.
Only a short term this time, so only five weeks to cram all of this in. I cannot wait to get started!
This term we will have another science based unit of work called Autumn Days When the Grass is Jewelled. This will be looking at the seasons we experience and how this makes changes to the world. We will also be focusing on the book, Malala's Magic Pencil during English time where we will learn about Malala Yousaif who made a difference to the world when she made a stand for girls getting an education. In Maths we will continue working on Fact Families of addition and subtraction as well as looking at shape.
This term is the build up to Christmas, so during RE, we will be focusing on Salvation. We will also be beginning to work on our Nativity Performance joining forces with the Year Two class. We will become the Choir for their performance which you will be invited to at a later date.

Welcome to Year One
I hope that you have had a lovely summer and are ready to get back to school for some learning and of course lots of fun!

We will start with a visit to Austerfield where we will learn about animal classifications and then we will continue learning about this during class time.
