Year 1 - Squirrels and Frogs

Autumn 2017

Dear parents/guardians,


Welcome back! We hope you had a fantastic and relaxing summer break.



This term we will be focusing on place value, addition and subtraction and geometry: shape.



We will be consolidating our phonetic knowledge and learning new diagraphs. We will also be focusing on sentence structure, including the use of question marks and exclamation parks.



This term our topics will be explores and festivals. We will be using maps and globes to find out more about the world we live in, including comparing our country to Peru. In our festival topic we will be finding out how people celebrate different festivals around the world.



This term we will be learning about Seasonal changes and everyday materials. We will be linking both of these to our topic work.
