Spring Term 1st Half 2024

TOPIC: Our new topic in half term is called Let it Snow!’

Dear Parents,

Happy New Year! I hope that you and your child had a great Christmas break and are ready for all that 2024 brings!  We are looking forward to teaching our new topic ‘Let it Snow’.

During this term we will be very busy in Year 1 - please see the topic plan above! 



We will be enjoying a range of texts that will helps us learn and apply the skills of reading. Your child’s reading books will be changed 2x weekly. Please ensure that you record the books they have read so we know which books need changing. Homework folders need to be in on Mondays and Thursdays please. Hearing your child read at least four times a week is really important and will earn them a golden ticket!


PE – will be on a Wednesday and Thursday this half term. Please can children come to school in their PE kits on those days and also if they have an after school sports club.


Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like to know how best to support your child’s learning at home.


Yours sincerely,   Mrs Muir,  Mrs Hunt and Mrs Richardson

We have filled all our containers up in class with praise points so now its time to add them to the school tubes...Mrs Muir is very proud of us!

The Snow Queen drama - to help us with our story writing we have been retelling and acting out our class text. We all loved wearing a costume!

We have created models and wrote an interesting sentence to explain about them.

We had a special treat for the last day of term... Mrs Muir brought in her snow machine so we could act out our story!
