Class Weekly News Year 1

Class Weekly news is posted on this page and remains for the term. While we are providing remote learning, our news and tasks will be posted on our Microsoft Teams learning platform rather than in the form of a newsletter.


If you need a copy of any historic news, please speak to the class teacher.


Our new topic is 'Bright Lights, Big City'. Here is some parent/carer information:


Hop on board a virtual big, red  bus and head for England’s capital. Yes, that’s right, we’re on our way to London!

This half term, we’ll take tea with the Queen and visit Buckingham Palace online. Using maps and research, we’ll locate Buckingham Palace, understand compass directions, plan routes around London and learn about the countries of the United Kingdom. Our research will take us back in time to the Great Fire of London and to famous London landmarks, as well as giving us an understanding of what it’s like to live in a big city. We’ll write adventure stories, take a virtual trip to London Zoo and make souvenirs for tourists.

At the end of our project, we’ll share our skills and knowledge with you. Our class will tell well-known stories about London, make a stop-motion animation and share traditional British songs and nursery rhymes.


Help your child prepare for their project
Cities are exciting places. Why not do a virtual visit to a local city to spot interesting vehicles, buildings and landmarks? Alternatively, you could search the web for images, information and film clips about London and keep a scrapbook of your findings. You could also visit the local library to see if you can find some colourful books of nursery rhymes and traditional songs to enjoy together.
