Autumn 1 2018  Fairytales

Year 1 are focusing on Fairytales and traditional tales and we be acting out, learning and then writing about stories including Billy Goats Gruff, The Gingerbread Man, The enormous turnip, three little pigs and Cinderella. In maths we will be focusing on number and fluency with lots of counting and number recognition to ensure the basics are well established. As part of our transition from Year R we are continuing with Meadow Mornings for the first half-term. Children will be learning about materials in science and looking at weather and the seasons during our new ‘outdoor learning’ sessions. In computing children will be learning the basics of logging on and opening programmes and applications on a variety of devices and Art and design will start off by exploring colour mixing and portraits. Children have two PE sessions each week on a Monday and Thursday. In Gymnastics they will be following a unit called flight and in Games sessions they will be learning football skills.

QPootle 5

Last week we had a visit from QPootle5. He left us a note and green slime all over the table. We are busy designing our own fabulous planets and we are going to write a letter to QPootle5 to invite him to visit.

Roll Up, Roll Up!

Welcome to the Fairfield Circus...

Circus Workshop
We all had a go at learning different circus skills during the day. Some of the equipment was quite tricky to master but we were persevering penguins and kept trying. We are going to practise our skills over the next few weeks ready for the big performance.

The Victorians

Picture 1
We are learning all about Queen Victoria and how she changed the way people live in this country. We put on our detective hats to become historians and find out information from lots of sources. We are also  learning about life as a Victorian school child, to inspire our story writing and so we are ready for our whole school dress up day.


Pirates 1





We are setting sail and learning all about Pirates this half term. We will write some poetry, learn about continents and seas and have a very exciting trip to Action Stations to start the topic. 


In Maths we will be doing lots of work on number and place value. It would help if you could do lots of counting in 2s, 5s and 10s backwards and forwards.


We will continue to send spellings home on Wednesdays and test them on Mondays.


PE days are Wednesdays and Fridays. Please make sure children have all their kit and tape or remove earrings.
