We welcome all Goldfinches, Robins and Wagtails into Year One and we are looking forward to learning, discovering and exploring together.
We are going to be learning about ourselves and other animals. We will learn names for body parts inside and outside the body and investigate using our senses. It is going to be fun!
We have enjoyed reading about the different things you have been doing over the Summer on Tapestry.
The book we are going to be reading is called, 'The Snail and the Whale' by Julia Donaldson. We will be asking questions about the characters and pretending to be them! We will pretend to explore the different places they travel to.
Term 2 - Celebrations
