Starlings and Goldfinches

Welcome to Year 1 at Kestrel Way. Please find below information about your child's learning topics this half term, including learning logs and topic leaflets. Please see our specific class pages for photos and information about each classes individual learning journeys.


We are ready to start our exciting and busy half term! This half term all our learning is based around the book 'The Jolly Postman and Friends' by the Alhbergs, we began our topic with a crafty wow day and the children have been eager to start learning. This half term in Science we will be looking at the change of seasons, parts of our bodies and exploring using our senses. In Art we will be creating self portraits, keeping up the arty theme in ICT we will be using programs to paint illustrations for traditional tales. Our topic in RE is 'how we show we care' and in PHSE we will be looking at our months value of respect and unity and learning how to keep our bodies healthy. Finally we will be looking at countries in the UK and where we live in Geography. 


Please come and see us at the classroom door if you have any questions. 

In Year 1, the children change their books daily if they have finished their book. The children choose their own books and the colour will be checked by an adult. Please support your child by listening to them read at home as often as possible. If they read four or more times in a week they will achieve their clover award.

Thank you for your continued support. If it any time you have any questions please speak to your child's class teacher.
