 Spring 2



Our topic this term is 'Rumble in the Jungle!' We will be writing information texts about the jungle in literacy. In science we are growing our own sunflowers and learning all about how plants grow. We will also be having a visit from a mobile zoo which is very exciting!



In literacy we will be doing non-fiction texts about the jungle. We will be using lots of question marks to write headings in our information texts! We will also be using 'so' and 'and' within our writing to make it more exciting!



This term there will be focusing on multiplication, division and fractions  in year one. To aid this at home you could practice putting objects into equal groups or splitting shapes into halves and quarters.

Topic - Autumn 2

This half term our topic is ‘Big Lights Big City.’ We will be looking at the history of London with a focus on the Great Fire of London and Guy Fawkes for bonfire night. We will also look at the seasonal changes of winter.

Topic Autumn 1 - Enchanted Forest!


In topic during the first half-term we learnt all about the enchanted forest. We learned about all the different animals and creatures that may live in the forest and their habitats. In art we used printing to make beautiful pictures of animals that may live in the forest, such as butterflies. Have a look at some of Miss Sidebottom's Brilliant Bonsais butterflies!

This term our PE will be indoors. Our PE sessions will be held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for both Brilliant Bonsai groups.

We are looking forward to the rest of the year and watching everybody SPARKLE!

Miss Sidebottom, Miss Owen, Miss Batchford and Mrs Staley.
