Here you will find out about all our amazing learning! There are some useful documents for you to view that give an overview of what's in store for each term. Primarily this year our focus is all about your child's wellbeing. Children will be given ample opportunities to share how they feel and what is on their mind while being given strategies to deal with what is going on in the world around them.

We are then going to innovate Mrs Armitage and the Big Wave story ahead of our trip to Weston-Super-Mare which will encourage some exciting recount writing.
This term we will be looking at a range of different topics in maths. We are going to begin the term looking at place value. Then, we will consolidate our maths skills in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will then spend the last couple of weeks investigating shapes and statistics.

This term we will be exploring weather and seasons. We are going to look in detail at the features of summer, weather forecasts and going on to analyse weather data.
The end of Term 5!
We have reached the end of Term 5! We had a lot of fun this term and it was wonderful to be back with all of our friends. On top of our excellent learning, we had a term packed full of lots of exciting opportunities, including Wellbeing Day, Storytelling Day, and our trip to Lower Stock farm! Have a look at the pictures below for what we got up to!
Wellbeing day: We spent a whole day focusing on our wellbeing! We played parachute games, created a class rainbow, made rainbow fruit kebabs, and explored making music on the iPads!
Trip to Lower Stock Farm: We had an excellent day at Lower Stock farm where we got to explore a working farm linked to our Fantastic Plants topic. We really enjoyed identifying the trees on the farm, hunting for a four leafed clover and we even got to stroke a hen called Mary!

Storytelling day: We loved learning in more detail about the story ‘Pattan’s Pumpkin’. We acted out the story, created props and painted a scene from the book. We even had a Q&A session with the author Chitra Soundar which left us all wanting to be authors!
Sports day: We had a super sports day! The children all showed fantastic sportsmanship and had a LOT of fun!
Weston Super Mare: Year 1 braved the windy weather to visit the beach. They had lots of fun playing in the sand, discovering shells and burying each others legs. They also rode on some friendly donkeys, ate delicious ice cream and scared away some cheeky seagulls that tried to pinch Miss Fletcher's lunch! It was a wonderful visit to the seaside!
