29th September

We've had a very busy couple of weeks and have made the most of being able to be outside in the lovely autumn sunshine. As part of our harvest celebration, we read a story from Africa then tasted some of the fruits which appear in the story.

 Wrens also enjoyed their invitation to the woods on Thursday, National Poetry Day, where they found some poems which they enjoyed learning and performing. You may very well have heard  'Silverly, silverly' recited in your house.

food tasting

 We discovered out that our food comes from all over the world and we tried some things we haven't eaten before-like avocado pear! Some of our broad beans have germinated and we have planted them in a trough. We hope that they will survive the winter and produce a crop before Wrens become Kingfishers. That's a long wait...

P.S. We have had an amazing number of reading book returned over the last few weeks. Thank you from all the Year1 team for your support with this-it really does make a difference.



Wrens have made a splendid start to the new term, settling into new routines very quickly.

All children now have a reading book to bring home and we are encouraging children to put their own folder in the box, first thing in the morning, so that books can be changed during the school day.

Our PE days are Monday and Friday and we will be outside this half-term for as many sessions as the weather allows.It is useful if children can have a waterproof and wellies in school and also an old shirt to cover their uniform during messy play or painting activities.

Our focus author for this half-term is Julia Donaldson.Children are welcome to bring a book written by her to share at storytime. Please ensure that this is named then it can be returned easily.

We are learning about weather. Any discussion about this, real or on the news etc. would be veryhelpful.

Home Learning and Big Write will start next term.
