Autumn 1


We are very pleased to welcome you at the beginning of the new school year.  We have been  busy settling into our new classes and have been making new friends.


Our topic this term is 'All About Me' and we will be learning about ourselves and our family. This will include learning about our families, our bodies and feelings and our family occupations (e.g. chef, gardener, artist). Some of our activities will include cooking and creating our own artwork.  We will also explore our family trees.  Watch out for any letters asking for your help!


Please visit our individual class pages to see our learning in progress.


Miss Lockyer and Miss Ricart.
