Welcome to Year 1


Welcome back to the second part of the Autumn Term! We will be having lots of fun whilst learning and spending time with our friends. 


Our topic this half-term is called 'Exciting Explorers'. We will be learning all about famous voyages and missions that have taken place in the past including researching Neil Armstrong and Christopher Columbus! We will also be writing about famous voyages and vehicles in English when we read the book 'What Friends Do Best' by Jonathan Emmett and Nathan Reed.


You will need to read at home EVERY night and don't forget to collect your reading pom poms at school to be in with a chance of winning the end of half term film and treat day!


Also, don't forget to learn your spellings each week for our spelling test on Monday. 


Please see our curriculum overview below for further information on what we will be studying this half-term.
