Class One

Hello Class One,


Welcome! We hope you have had a wonderful summer and are excited about starting school.



P.E. will be on a Wednesday afternoon, so please keep practising how to get changed independently at home and please make sure you have your P.E. kit in school.  


Tapestry Learning Journeys:

Please use our class Tapestry account so that you can share your 'WOW' learning moments with your parents at home. This is the place to look out for your homework or any Memos from school. Log in details will be sent out in due course.


Autumn 1 topic:

Here is your topic for Autumn 1 term, 'Are we there yet?' We will look at road safety, how things move and fast and slow. 


Possible lines of enquiry include:
• how many different types of vehicles are there?
• which vehicles move fast and which move slow?
• how are different vehicles powered?

• how is a car different to a bus?
