Welcome to Year One!
In the first half of this term, children will investigate whether dragons really existed. We have discovered an egg and will be trying to find out how to look after it. They will also be learning about royal weddings in the past and about the upcoming wedding. After the half term break the topic will be ‘Who put the stones on Dartmoor?’ We will learn about some Dartmoor legends and try to work out if there is any way that people could have built the tors.
Reading continues to be a focus this term so it is very important that your child reads to you for 10 minutes at least 5 times a week. Practice makes perfect! We change finished reading books on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Homework cards need to be brought in on a Friday.
PE kits need to be brought into school on a Monday as we will be taking the opportunity to get outside whenever it is dry!
