Welcome to Spring 1

It is lovely to welcome all the children back. They all looked so happy to return and see their friends again.

This term Year 1 will take part in the RSPB 2022 Big School’s Birdwatch and the RSPB Wildlife challenge. Therefore, we will start the term with a poetry unit all about beaks using works by A.A.Milne. We will link this to our science unit ‘Animals and Humans’ where we will focus on birds. This unit will be packed full of practical activities and we will get outdoors and make the most of our forest school sessions.

After that we will be using the book ‘The Lion Inside’ to explore animals from around the world, weather and climates, and the question, what makes us special? This all links nicely with our Come and See unit ‘Special People’.

Mrs Hodgkins will continue to teach PE and Computing (among other things) on Fridays.


Tapestry remains the main way we will communicate and share your child’s learning with you. We will share news, pictures, videos and messages. We will also share links to online books and links to phonics videos for additional practise. Please log-in regularly and continue to share your learning from home. You can also use Tapestry to share news or pictures for show and tell. The children love sharing news with their friends.


Children will continue to have 1 book bag book and 1 library book each week. The book bag book is matched to each child’s’ current phonic level and is designed to help the children build confidence and fluency and should be read 3 or 4 times. The library book is chosen by the children and is for you to read as a family and enjoy together. You can read this to or with your child, just enjoy!

As always if you have any question or worries please feel free to contact us or speak to us at the end of the school day.
