Year 1 started off Shakespeare week by acting out the beginning of The Tempest and writing character descriptions. We were creative and collaborative learners, building shipwreck scenes using blocks and fabric.
We also had the opportunity to share the story and be inspired by our Patron of Reading Stephanie Clarkson.
Year 1 have had a fantastic start to the Autumn Term, enjoying a Great Fire of London Workshop in the very first week!
We’ve also created some beautiful artwork work inspired by Kandinsky.
We’ve taken our learning outside whenever the weather has allowed us, enjoying activities in the nature area.
Reading record and colour-banded reading book in their book bag.
PE is on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Until further notice, PE kit will not be required. Instead, we would ask all children to wear trainers as suitable footwear ready for physical education activities. This is to ensure minimal belongings are moving between home and school.

A blue sweater for when we go out on trips.
Monday – fortnightly Home Learning project in for the following Thursday.
Friday – the children have a spelling test every Friday (starting after Christmas). They must have their yellow books in school on a Friday to receive their new spelling for the following week. We recommend children use the look, say, cover, spell, check method to practise these.
Reading – children are expected to read at least 3 times a week with a parent or carer.
