Welcome to Year 1
We have had fun learning about the legend of Lady Godiva and would like to encourage you to explore the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum in Coventry which has a Lady Godiva exhibit as well as noting that many of the streets in the centre of Coventry still have their medieval names. (Greyfrairs green, Spon Street, Earl Street, Broadgate, Jordan Well.)
In English and topic lessons this term we will be exploring fairy tales. Next week we will read 'The 3 Little Pigs' with a focus on informal letter writing. We will work towards writing a letter from the pigs to the Big Bad wolf.
In Maths we will explore shapes and we will continue to explore numbers and place value. Looking at ones and tens finding one more and one less.
In science we will explore the topic of seasons through the year at the appropriate time. This week we are looking at Autumn through a story, linking it to hibernation and looking at how the weather, clothing and the trees change.
Our RE topic for this term is 'Who is a Christian and what do they believe?'
