Chestnut Class have been impressing us with their writing this past few in both their own version of the story of The Queen's Hat. The version when the Queen visited Sauncey Wood.
Not only that, but they have been learning about the importance of the symbol of light across many religions and cultural traditions. We have discussed what light means to them and have also written poems to describe a festival of light.
We are now focussing on:
- Addition and subtraction within 10
- Writing about the Gunpowder Plot
- Starting rehearse the Nativity!

Year 1 is a pivotal year for the children and we are regulalry reminding them to play kindly with each other, show respect and work together. We are an inclusive school and the children have enjoyed developing their own class rules: Kind hands, look after each other, tell an adult if you have a problem. Please do talk to your children at home about this too so that we can embed the message.
