This term we are on a voyage of discovery 'To the toy museum'.

During this topic we will be taking a look at the history of toys. We will look at the differences in the materials old and new toys are made of and the different types of toys we play with now, compared to the toys people played with in the past. 

Our first focus text in English is Old Bear. Using this book we will be writing our own stories and messages. 


Reading continues plays a fundamental part in all areas of the curriculum. In class we have access to a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books which we are able to use not only within our Guided Reading sessions, but also when appropriate in our curriculum lessons to support our learning. Each term we have a spotlight author who has been chosen for their high-quality texts. Over the course of the term we will have to opportunity to listen to, read and learn more about these fantastic authors. This term our spotlight author is the humourous Tom Fletcher. Having this literacy-rich enviroment will encourage a positive culture of reading within our class and promote the children's enjoyment of reading.        

Please ensure your child reads at home at least 5 times per week.  In Year1, we expect the children to be reading aloud to someone at home and for this to be recorded in their Home – School contact books.
