Autumn term 2021


Welcome to the Autumn section of our class page.  You can find out about what we are learning this term by clicking here to see the Year 1 parent curriculum letter. 

Our science topic this term is Animals including Humans and we will be asking the Big Question 'Are they all called animals even if they are so different?'

(add blurb re what the children are learning and any websites that are good for supporting this topic at home?)

Our humanities topic this term is Changes Within Living Memory and we will be asking the Big Question 'How has life changed?'

If you have time, you could look through old photographs with your child to see how people and places have changed. 

(Add blurb re what they are learning and any websites that are good for supporting this topic at home?)


We will be posting pictures of some of our favourite events throughout the term so keep looking for our updates. 



Supporting learning at home


Homework is sent out every Friday and should be completed by the following Wednesday.  Please remember that your role is to support the children - not do the work for them.

Homework is set online using Numbots, Doodle maths and spelling frame. Log on each week to see your set activities. Your child will have a homework book with passwords and guidance on letter formation. Use this book for free writing and return it to school each Wednesday for your teacher to look at. 

If you need any help with the homework then please come and chat to me.  I am always happy to go through it with you.



Children need to read at home every day with an adult. Your child will take home a decodeable book and an additional book chosen by your child. These will be changed twice a week to provide opportunities for your child to re-read the same text over several days. Once a week they will also get a bedtime story book to help develop their love of story as well as their vocabulary. Please record a comment each day in the yellow reading journal and return it to scohol - we will check these each day.
