Year 1 Newsletter – Autumn 2
We have been having a bang, pop, whizz of a time in Angelfish these last few weeks. We have been learning all about Guy Fawkes and using some fantastic language to describe our fireworks in English. Mr Charman lit a bonfire for us and we had sparklers to help us develop our word banks in class.
Today, we have just started learning about Little Red Riding Hood. We found some wolf footprints in Jellyfish class and Granny asleep in her house. She was a little scared but we made her feel safe.
In science we are learning all about materials and their properties. Can you look around your house and find out what materials different objects are made of? We have also got a need science lab in our role play area to help us get into the role of a scientist. Please ask us what we have learnt about wood, metal, plastic and glass.
We are looking forward to…….CHRISTMAS, yay. We have started to learn the songs for our KS1 performance and are very excited to show you. Watch this space for more updates from Angelfish.

Today, children across Year 4 and 5 took part in an OpenBox
