Autumn Term Second Half Message
I can't believe we are already on to Autumn 2! I hope all of the children had a lovely half term and are all well rested for the busy but fun half term ahead. This half term our topics are all related to Toys which is always a firm favourite with Year 1 children and adults. We have lots of fun activities planned during both busy learning time and in the continuous provision areas. During this half term we will be learning all about individual liberty during our 'We are on Strike!' topic before moving on to learning all about old toys and comparing them to new toys during our History topic 'It's a Toy Story'. Our last topic will be learning all about materials in our science topic 'Superheroes in Trouble!' where Year 1 will be learning all about the Traction Man story books and going on lots of daily adventures with Traction Man and TurboDog using their imagination. This topic will conclude with a fun DT project for all of the children.Our final week will then be focused on the upcoming Christmas celebrations and learning all about the Christmas Story.
We now have a wet room to enable our children to change into waterproofs and wellies so they can access our new equipment safely - and mainly, keep clean and dry! The Rain and Shine room has also been adapted to house even more new outdoor resources and equipment which can be accessed by the children during independent learning time.
Year 1 Recommended Reading List
Giving children access to all varieties of literature is extremely important for their success. Reading is a key life skill which is crucial to developing language skills and access to the wider curriculum. It provides children with the chance to respond and develop personal opinions encouraging deeper thoughts and their imagination. Our aim is to develop a love and passion for reading both at home and school. We have specially selected high quality reading books for each year group. Some of these books can be found in the classroom and some are available for loan at Lees library. Encourage your child to read as many of these books as possible throughout the year.
Please select the document below to see the books we recommend.

Things to Remember
Please come to school every Friday wearing the full school PE kit. Black shadow shorts and logo t-shirt with plain black sweatshirt joggers and their school sweatshirt. Correct fitting velcro trainers.
Please make sure your child brings a coat to school everyday. Outdoor learning is a vital part of your child's learning and will happen on a daily basis. We kindly ask for you to provide us with a pair of wellies for your child which can be kept in school so the children can go and learn outdoors in all weathers! The wellies need to be labelled with the child’s name or initials please.
