Autumn 1

Who am I and where do I live?

After settling in and getting to know all the new faces, our topic for the Autumn term is ‘Who am I and where do I live?’ We are going to be learning lots about who we are, our local area and learning some simple geographical skills.

Our PE days this term will be on a Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child wears their PE kit to school on these day.  We have still got an awful lot of school clothing that is not named – we cannot take responsibility for unnamed clothing, so it is essential that all school uniform is labelled clearly with your child’s name.

You can support your child’s learning at home by:

  • Asking them about what they have learned about in school that day.
  • Discussing the topics that are being covered together.
  • Reading about the topics at home.
  • Visiting the library to find out more about the topics for the term.
  • Practise counting carefully and in multiples of 2s, 5s and 10s.
  • Practise reading and spelling the Year 1 common exception words.
