Autumn Term 2023

This term we will be moving on to a fun-filled new unit of work, ‘Live and Let Live’, which is all about living things and their needs. During this unit, we will be looking at how humans and animals grow and change, identifying things that are alive or have never been alive and discovering how we can attract wildlife to our environment. 

Our Science unit is called ‘The Animal Kingdom’ and will provide many links to our DPC unit.  

It allows us to explore our knowledge of animals in even more detail, including classifying animal groups and looking at simple food chains. In lessons, we will also be continuing our work on the different seasons and the changes that we see to our school environment. As part of our DT work, the children will be to designing and making a bird feeder to encourage more wildlife to visit the school grounds and our gardens. In PSHE, we will be starting a new unit called 'Dreams and Goals' and this will tie in nicely with setting our own New Year's resolutions. The children will be thinking about the qualities of perseverance, motivation and challenging themselves. 

This term, 1P will be doing ‘Yoga Bugs’ sessions every Friday afternoon.  

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful parents for their continued support.
