Our core texts will be 'Jabuti the Tortoise' and 'Roaming in the Rainforest' which we will use to stimulate both reading and writing. Our topic activities will be heavily focused on Design Technology. We will be designing and making our own headresses and samba maracas to use in our very own carnival! We will also be learning the artwork of Beatriz Milhazes and creating our own videos.

PE days are on Monday and Thursday please ensure children have their full PE kit and any earrings are removed. 

Please encourage and support your child to read daily so they can collect as many dojos as possible!

This term every child in Year One will take part in the phonic screening check. Please support your child by completing the phonics homework sent home each Friday as well as listening to them read daily. If you have any questions about this please do ask.

Please remember to upload any learning or activities that happen at home onto Tapestry. And feel free to comment on any learning opportunitites from school.Image result for tapestry icon
