Year 1






We are looking forward to lots of exciting learning in Year 1 this year. Your teachers are Miss Ali and Mr Gibney.


Mrs Hassanjee, Mrs Duncanson, Miss Patel and Mrs Choksi also support the learning across both classes.

Our topic this term - Rumble in the Jungle


This term, we will be exploring space in lots of areas of our learning. In English, we are looking at the non-fiction texts 'Toys from the past' by Sally Hewitt and 'When I am by myself' by Eloise Greenfield. This links with our History topic this term, which is 'toys from the past', where we will explore toys from different decades and investigate how they have changed. In science, we will explore 'Animals and Humans' and 'Plants'. We look forward to a trip to the zoo this term!
