Year One Newsletter - Autumn Term 2 2021
It seems that Christmas is almost upon us, if the shops are to be believed, but there is a great deal to be done before we can relax and enjoy the ‘festive season’! Nevertheless, we have planned some great learning for your child with a good dose of fun included.
We continue to use our brains to help us learn and will explore using our senses further through mindful listening, smell, taste and touch. Your children may have already told you how we all used all our senses to try warm pumpkin soup.
Our new topic for the Autumn term is ‘Autumn and Into The Woods’. This involves learning all about nocturnal animals and appreciating all the beauty of the changing season around us! In English, we will be using the wonderful text ‘The Gruffalo’ by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler and using our story telling skills to put some actions to the story.
We will be looking at different artists “work with nature”, one of which is Andy Goldsworthy from whom we will take our inspiration, creating our own artwork using nature.
We will be finishing our topic with a fabulous celebration of the children’s work.
We would like to thank you for your continuing support with your child’s reading and appreciate all your support and positive feedback with the key word cases. Please remember that these need to come into school in your child’s book bag every day for them to practise each morning. Once your child can read the words and read them in a range of texts they will be given new words.
