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!

Design Technology

During our DT lessons we have been learning about eating healthy food. We have designed and planned our own fruit smoothies and had a very special afternoon making our smoothies with Barry the Chef! We even had enough to take a little pot home for our grown ups to try!

History - We were lucky to have Mr and Mrs Hunt come in to talk to us about what life was like in the past. We found out about their childhood; the toys they played with, school and clothes they wore. We reflected on the difference between their lives and ours. The children asked lots of questions!


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. Alice was very kind and let us read the labels and place them to identify parts of the body. She had to keep very still!
