Nurture, Inspire, Achieve!

Year 1

Autumn 1

This half term in Year 1 we will be learning...


Collective Worship 

Throughout this half term we will be focusing on a different value each week. The values we will be exploring are respect, love, forgiveness, service, friendship and peace. We will be listening to and responding to a range of bible stories that teach Christians about the importance of our values.


Don't forget to complete your value tasks! They could be included in our next newsletter!


Reading Eggs

This half term, we will be accessing Reading Eggs on a weekly basis. The aim is for every child to complete a minimum of 5 reading sessions per week.  


Most of these sessions will be completed in school, however it would be extremely beneficial for children to be accessing it from home on a weekly basis as well.  The aim of this programme is to improve children's reading and comprehension skills, by quickly adapting to meet the exact needs of every child. 



We are beginning the half term exploring the story ‘Lost and Found’ by Oliver Jeffers. The children will be writing their own innovative version of the story! Then we will be learning about non-chronological reports and the children will write their own report
