Dear Parents,

We can’t quite believe we are at the half way point of the year! The children are continuing to make us proud, making marvelous progress each week and have continued to show Year 1 expectations and routines! A reminder that Forest School is on Thursdays, with indoor PE on a Tuesday and outdoor PE on Thursday! Library day is on a Wednesday! Could we also please ask at all times your child has their ‘Little Wandle’, reading practice book with them, so we can read with them frequently (sometimes even daily!) throughout the week! Also, remember that ‘Reading Eggs’ and ‘E-collins’ accounts are still active and are another great way to support your child’s reading at home! Also please remember that we do regularly post on Tapestry, so please try and log on to keep up with updates and news!


This term we have a history-based topic called ‘Time Travellers’, we will begin this topic with a visit to Milton Keynes Museum and exploring the concept of history through discussing changes within our own living memory! We will be exploring how transport has changed through the ages and look in depth at the first airplane flight! The theme of history will continue to run alongside our English planning, supported by our topic text ‘Major Glad, Major Dizzy’ a beautiful picture book based on toys from the past. We will be using the text to explore descriptive writing, speech, questions and narratives! In maths, we will be extending our knowledge of numbers up to 50! This will include representing numbers, partitioning, comparing and ordering! We will also explore measurement in the later weeks of the term!

As always a huge thank you for your commitment to your child’s learning and a huge thank you for the support we receive in the school! If you would like the opportunity to do some 1:1 reading with the children in year 1, please feel free to contact either Miss Forward, Mrs Rice or Mrs Tapp to arrange a time J
