Year 1 curriculum

Welcome back to Year 1 for our Spring Term!

This Term our topic is Rainforest Romp. All our cross-curricular work will focus on the plants and animals found in the Amazon Rainforest. We’re looking forward to going on our trip to Bugtopia in February too, where we will get to see and touch some of the plants and animals.

Thank you for all your creative Rainforest challenges that have been brought in. They look fantastic!

Homework will continue to be given out on a half termly basis and will be linked to the topics we are covering.

During this tem we will start practising Year 1 spellings. 5 words will be sent home on a Monday night for the children to practise and they will be tested on these words on a Friday.

Please remember to encourage your child to read at home at least 3 times per week in order to receive their regular reader stamp. Remember that reading any book is fantastic, not just your school book, and we would love to see these recorded in your reading records.

Thank you for your continued support.
