Our book of the term is:

Bringing the Rain to Kapiti Plain

Welcome to the last half term of the academic year, we can’t believe our time in Year 1 together is almost finished! We’ve got a fun filled half term learning all about our topic – Africa Alive! 

We shall be reading a range of stories and information books all about Africa, especially African animals. We have a fantastic trip coming up to Twycross Zoo where we will get to see some of these amazing animals first hand. We are going to be writing our own animal poems and also learning how to write information pages about animals. If children would like to do any extra research about Africa or bring in any books or soft toys from Africa we’d love to see them.

We shall also be doing lots of thinking about changes and moving on to Year 2 so children feel happy and confident about next year.We’ve been very impressed with the progress the children have made in their phonics recently, a big well done to all of them for their super efforts and fantastic progress!


Book Bags

Please can you make sure your child’s book bag is in school each day. Books are changed on different days now so it is important that their book bag and reading books come in to us each day.


Spelling books are collected in on Thursday and new spellings are given out on Friday.

PE Kits

Please make sure PE kits are in school. Giraffes have PE on Mondays and Chameleons have PE on Tuesday.

Maths No Problem!

We’ve been trialling our new maths programme this term. It is called Maths No Problem, so far the children seem to been really enjoying it!
