Otters (Year 1 AS)

w/c 16th April 2018 - Welcome back, Otters!

I hope you enjoyed your Easter break and are relaxed, refreshed and ready to learn! This Summer 1 half-term our topic will be 'We Are Historians', focusing heavily on the Victorian era. We will develop our fact finding skills and learn more about some amazing Victorians and their inventions, skills and creativity. In English, we will be studying biographies and autobiographies. In Maths, we will be counting and adding in groups and multiples of 2, 5 and 10. There will, of course, be lots of creative opportunities as we explore some exciting artists, inventors and their work! 

We will also have our Year 1 trip to Woolley Firs on Thursday 26th April - remember to bring your Teddy for the Teddy Bears Picnic!
