Year 1

Welcome to Beetles & Ladybirds

Welcome back!

We hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable summer break out in the glorious sunshine and you are now ready to start Year 1.

During the first few weeks of term, we will be focusing on the importance of ‘diversity’, by learning about inspirational people within STEM careers (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). We will focus on Mary Seacole, a British-Jamaican nurse, who continued her passion for helping others even in the most dangerous places!

For the rest of Autumn term, our exciting topic is ‘Once upon a time’, giving us a fantastic opportunity to share many different traditional tales and practise using some wonderful storytelling language! The two books that we will learn and base our fiction and non-fiction writing on are: The Enormous Turnip and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We will be looking at seasonal change and harvesting vegetables, as well as designing and sewing our own teddy hand puppets.

In Maths we will be learning to count up to 20 and beyond, as well as using this number knowledge in simple addition and subtraction.

We cannot wait to see any topic-related homework that you have completed already.

Let’s have a great first term!
