Welcome to Year 1

Welcome back after half term break.  Miss Whittaker and I hope you had a restful time. This half term our topic is called Pirates!  We will be finding out about Grace Darling and the very first lifeboats that were used. We will also be learning the names of the seven continents and five oceans of the world. In Science, we will be learning all about habitats and how animals have adapted to live in them, with a particular focus on ocean habitats. In DT the children will be designing and sewing their very own pirate puppets!   

And, of course, this half term is also a very exciting one for the children! We have our Children in Need fundraising day where the children can come dressed up as someone who inspires them, or in non-uniform (Friday 19th November).  We will also be doing some lovely activities around Christmas time too, and we might even get a visit from a very special person towards the end of this half term!! 

Have a great half term,
