Year 1
Miss Thomson

Welcome to Year One! 

A Pirate's Life For Me!

Ahoy me hearties! Welcome aboard the ol' ship Charnwood!

This half term we will be sailing the 7 seas (well... oceans) and exploring the 7 continents. On the way we will be learning all about different landmarks, cultures and even the animals that live there! We will use our knowledge to sort and group animals and we will be learning about their different diets... let's stay away from the carnivores! 

On our travels we will be writing stories, reading poetry and listening to plenty of pirate tales. We will be using our number skills to progress onto 'teen' numbers and begin to use these in number sentences. 

There will be plenty of time to be creative too...! We will be making collages, playing glokenspiels and singing plenty of sea shanties.

So pack your bags and get ready for arrrrr pirate adventure!

Returning to school

At Charnwood we understand how challenging the past few months have been. We have been working hard to ensure our classrooms are not only safe but fun, engaging and comforting! Our main priority is that children return to school feeling happy and secure.
