Year 1

Year 1 pupils…

Welcome to Year 1’s Website Page!

Our topic this term is ‘Toys through Time.’ We will be learning lots about toys from the past; the
materials of toys and how these have changed over time, the origin of certain toys geographically,
and we will be incorporating our topic into maths and literacy too!
We have kicked off this term looking at the picture book, ‘Flotsam’ as part of our ‘Take one Book
Week’ and will be working towards the children writing a third person setting description.
In science we will be learning about materials and linking it to specific toys and their purposes, and
we will be beginning to explore and justify the reasons for material choices.
Our three school values of respect, Kindness and ambition will continue to heavily underpin
everything that we do on a daily basis, across the curriculum. This will help grow the positive and
secure atmosphere that has been established in class throughout the Autumn term.
Our library slot (Friday) and PE slots (Monday and Tuesdays) are unchanged so please can we all
ensure the children have their PE kits at school all week as this has started to drop slightly which is
resulting in come children missing PE and being unable to change their library books, thank you!
The same as last term, we adopt an open-door policy, so please do speak to me, Mrs Neighbour or
Miss Czaikowska (Thursdays) if you have any queries, worries or concerns either before or after
school. You are also more than welcome to make appointments to come and see me if that’s more

Thank you and I look forward to our continuing communication and mutual support!

Miss Hardcastle
