Year 1

Term 1 will continue to focus on Covid catch up, embedding the basic skills in reading, writing and maths to ensure the foundations of learning are rebuilt for the future.

In English, Year 1 will be studying the books 'The Colour Monster' by Anna Ilenas: The Colour Monster is a mix of colours so his friend, a little girl, takes him through each colour to help him understand how he is feeling. By the end of the story The Colour Monster is no longer rainbow coloured and the girl is confused by his final colour!

They will then explore the book 'The Bumble Bear' by Nadia Shireen: Dressed in a bear-sized bee costume, Norman makes a convincing, if rather large, bee. He thoroughly enjoys the lessons and learns all sorts of useful skills, such as buzzing, waggly dancing and even flying. The other bees love him, as he always tries his best and is great fun to be around.
