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.


Our new topic for Autumn 2 is called 'Them Bones, Them Bones'. This will be based around the story of 'Funnybones'. We began our topic with a bonfire wow day where we made biscuits, drank hot chocolate and did lots of craft activities. This half term in Science we will be looking at  parts of our bodies and exploring using our senses. In DT we will be creating our own moving skeletons and in computing we will be using IPADS to record our own TV chef videos! we will be using programs to paint illustrations for traditional tales. Our topic in RE is 'Special Places'. We will also soon be starting to cast and rehearse for our Christmas Play, which we look forward to performing to you all on Tuesday 18th December.


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.
