Class 1 Autumn Term 1 Newsletter 


I hope that you have all had a wonderful summer break and are now ready to start the new school year.


We are beginning the Autumn Term, which promises to be an exciting and interesting one, with our topic ‘Where In The World…?’ This topic will take us on a journey around the world as we look at and learn about different continents, countries, animals and habitats. As part of our topic work we will be having our Stunning Start Day for the children to dress up as their favourite animals from the around the world and we will be visiting Whipsnade Zoo. More details of both events will follow in due course.


As always we will be encouraging the children to continue their learning outside of the classroom and indeed outside of school. Please support your children and their learning by reading with them at home every day and recording this reading in their Home-School Diaries. Children will need their reading books in school everyday. We will endeavour to change the children’s reading books three times a week. If you have completed your child’s school reading book at home then please do share other books with them that they enjoy.

PE: Monday & Thursdays (Please ensure children have the correct kit in school for these sessions).

Reading Book Change: Monday, Wednesday & Friday
