Year 1


Our topic for this half term is Castles.
In our English lessons we are learning traditional tales set in and around castles and we will be soon be looking at non-fiction texts to find out about the different parts of castles and who lived in them.
We are making moving pictures of knights and jesters for our Design and Technology and creating pictures of castles in our Art and Computing lessons.
We will be going to visit two local castles in October to learn a bit more about them first hand.


PE days are Wednesday and Thursday – please ensure children have their PE kits in school and take their earrings out.


We will be starting sending homework and spellings home in due course but we are giving the children a chance to settle into school and routines before we begin.

How you can help you child at home

Please read with your child every night. Books can be changed before or after school in the community hall. Your child will know what level they are supposed to take home.  Here is a link to the recent Numicon afternoon we held in school.
