Otters (Year 1 AS)

Welcome back, Otters!

I hope you have enjoyed your half-term break and are relaxed, refreshed and ready to learn! Our half-term topic is: The Snowman. During our topic, we will delve into the world of inferential, illustrative fiction alongside poetry and instruction writing. There will also be plenty of opportunity to extend our literacy learning within non-fiction texts and writing. In Science, we will continue to build upon our materials learning from Autumn 1, as well as completing our history journey on houses through the times following our fantastic trip to Chiltern Open Air Museum. In Maths, we will of course continue to focus on place value as well as addition, subtraction and number bonds. Our first week back is Take One Picture week, where we will be looking at the illustrations of E. H. Shepard in A. A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh stories. All of this fabulous learning will lead us up to the end of the Autumn term and our Nativity production!
