Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope you had a relaxing Christmas and New Year.

This is just a short note to let you know of some of the areas that year 1 will be studying in the coming term.

In R.E. we will be learning about our local church and community. We will talk about families and people who have special roles. We will talk about special people in our lives who are there to help. We will also talk about how on Sunday the parish family gathers for the Eucharist (Mass), Jesus’ special meal.


This term we will be investigating the topic of ‘What was it like when our parents and grandparents were children?’ which will cover a range of curriculum topics such as History, Geography, Literacy, Science, computing, art and DT.
