Autumn Term 

The first topic we focus on in Year One is 'Ourselves'. We will be doing lots of fun activities where we can talk about ourselves, our families and get to know lots about each other.

Year One Author of The Term is Shirley Hughes. We will be enjoying reading lots of her books as a whole class at the end of the day. 

In English, we are reading Dogger by Shirley Hughes and we will be doing various writing tasks based around the story..
