Welcome back!


Welcome back everyone! We hope you had a lovely Christmas and we would like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year!

It has been great to have the children back into school and we are ready for our exciting Spring term.

This term we have a whole school topic based around a Shakespeare play called ‘The Tempest’. Last week, we began to investigate objects that we found in a treasure chest, which contained many artefacts from a ship. We thought about where they might have come from and why they are important. We will continue to explore ‘The Tempest’ by looking at sounds and objects from a storm to help us write a setting description of a sea storm.

For the next two weeks in Maths, we will be looking closely at a clock. We are looking at the hands on a clock, reading the time and drawing times accurately on the clock face. Please encourage children to look at clocks at home and on any outside adventures! It would be great if you could talk about daily activities that you do at different times in the day, and show them on the clock.

Homework books need to be in on Wednesday (11th January) and we are excited to read book reviews and see the children’s favourite place to read!

Please also ensure PE kits are in school and named where possible.

If you have any concerns or questions, please speak to a member of staff in the year one team.


Many thanks,

The Year One Team
