Spring Term update!

Dear Parents and Carers,

We have been very busy this term learning about Queen Elizabeth II and a journey Into The Woods. The children have thoroughly enjoyed both topics immensely and had great fun.

Our Topic focus books this term are:

  • Skip through the seasons by Stella Blackstone.
  • Hansel and Gretel by Josephine Collins
  • Hansel and Gretel by Anthony Browne

Have a look at the Hansel and Gretel song:


For Art we made sure to look at the famous artist called Henri Matisse and made our own version of the snail from 1952 -1953.

Science – we continued Animals Including Humans and worked on our understanding of Carnivore, Herbivores and Omnivores.

Our Maths focus for this term has been Measurement:

  • Length and Height
  • Weight and Mass
  • Capacity and Volume

PSHE – We have learnt about keeping healthy and safe. Our topic was called Healthy Me.

RE – We revisited Christianity and focused on what is means to belong.

We have celebrated World Book Day and focused on the book called Flotsom  by David Wiesner.

As time is flying by we wanted to remind the year 1 Parents and Carers about the Phonics screening check coming in June. The children will be assessed for their reading and their phonetical awareness. Please read the attached link to help you understand what is expected of your child and let us know if you need any more support with this.


Please continue to read with your child everyday and sign their reading records.

Looking forward to seeing you at our Parents Evening to discuss your child’s targets.
