Well done to all of Year 1 for a positive start to the new academic year.

Welcome to the Year 1 page

The children have settled well and are looking forward to the autumn term filled with ‘Wild Things’ fun. Our role-play area is based on Max’s bedroom from Where the Wild Things Are. The children have already planted a broad bean and started sponge printing a ‘Wild Thing’ for our growing classroom forest. Science will take us into wild and garden plants, including deciduous and evergreen trees, and later in the term we will use the copse area for a Wild Rumpus! This will be a whole day of fun, starting with making ‘wild thing’ cookies, fruit punch and toasted muffin sailboats for a Wild Rumpus party in the afternoon! The children will be asked to dress up as a ‘Wild Thing’ so start thinking about creating some amazing costumes! Details to follow shortly.

Please see the topic curriculum planning document for more details.

Any questions, just ask!
