Welcome back to the first term of the year, we hope you had a lovely summer break.

We have really enjoyed settling into Year 1 and are looking forward to the year ahead.

To kick-start the term we have been focusing on the story 'Tiddler', the story telling fish. We have been practising sentence writing, letter sounds, counting, ordering numbers and number formation. Can you remember where Tiddler went on his adventures?

Tiddler by Julia Donaldson

Matt Curtis narrates the much loved book by Julia Donaldson "Tiddler" as part of the "My Daughter's Story" range by Chizorra Productions. With accompanying illustrations by Axel Scheffler, Tiddler is the story of a story telling fish caught up on a big adventure.

On Wednesday, we had a special visit from Mr and Mrs Vinegar, who talked to us about 'changes', focusing on moving to a new house, new school and making new friends. We had so much fun finding out about each other! We have also enjoyed a sensory walk around the school environment, playing games with the parachute and moving in different ways in PE.

Our theme this term is:

‘Bright Lights Big City’

So far we have located the seas, countries and capital cities in the United Kingdom and will be focusing on London and the Great Fire of London.

We hope you can visit our page throughout the year.

We will be keeping it updated with important information and photos of the children's learning!
