Autumn Term 1st Half 2023

Term overview - please have a look and open the link to see what exciting learning will be taking place in Year 1 this half term in 2023.

PE is on a Tuesday and Wednesday - please can the children come to school wearing their school PE kit on those days.

These are our literacy texts this half term. Have you got these books at home too?

The children were very excited to get their own homework folder. Please hear your child regularly and go through the sound mat. Reading books will be changed on a Monday and a Thursday.

This half term our role play area is a cafe...just like in our class text - The Tiger Who Came to Tea!

Forest School is on a Wednesday afternoon. Please can the children bring wellies and raincoats as we will be going out in all weathers!

Fantastic Forest School

We are loving our PE Mrs Muir.

Marvellous Maths


Place Value- We are learning how to group, count and record numbers.

Number sequences- We are learning about number sequences – counting in different steps, and carrying on patterns. To count one more/one less from any given number. Identify and represent numbers using objects and pictorial representations including the number line, and use the language of: equal to, more than, less than (fewer), most, least.

Well done Butterflies for filling up all our Praise Point tubes in class. Here they are putting the points into the whole school tubes!


We are learning to identify, name, draw and labelling parts of the human body and say which part of the body is associated with each sense. Ayla was very kind and let us read the labels and place them to identify parts of the body. She had to keep very still!

Design Technology


We have been learning about healthy eating and designed our own fruit smoothie.

We were very lucky to have Anna from the charity Sustrans who brought her smoothie making bike for the children to use. The children cut their fruit up and placed it into the smoothie making bike machine. As you can see from the photos it was great fun and they really enjoyed drinking their smoothie!



We have been learning about what life was like in the past for children and comparing it to life now. We have looked at different artifacts from the past. How we change as we grow from a baby, child, teenager to adult. 

We were lucky enough to have Mrs Hunts Mum and Dad come in to talk to us about what their life was like growing up. The children asked lots of interesting questions and were very surprised that they did not have electricity, a computer or a mobile phone!

Thank you so much to Mrs Hunts parents for giving up their afternoon to visit us.
