Autumn Term 2022 



We encourage children to read their school reading books at least twice with you before it is changed at school. Children will bring home 2 reading books; one will be from the school Bug Club scheme and the second book will be linked to the phonics sessions taught within school. Books will be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please support your child by signing their reading records each time they read to an adult. If five signatures are recorded by Friday each week, your child will be awarded a raffle ticket which goes towards the end of term reading raffle. It would be fantastic if you could, whenever possible, discuss what they are reading.



A sudden gust of wind sets of a marvellous London adventure for the Queen, the Queen's men and one very special hat. So let's follow one determined, dare-devil queen through London Zoo, over Tower Bridge and up Big Ben ... just where will that hat land?

This term we will be delving into the story 'The Queen's Hat' by Steve Antony. The story provides fantastic writing opportunities whilst tying in nicely to our 'Royal Family' History focus. We will be encouraging children to include capital letters, full stops, correct letter formation and finger spaces in their writing. We will be further developing writing by introducing key features such as onomatopoeia, similes, metaphors, alliteration, adjectives and different sentence types.


This term we will be developing our understanding of Place Value within 10, leading on to Additon and Subtraction. 


In the first few weeks we will be consolidating our understanding of numbers within 10. Within maths lessons, we will be sorting objects, counting objects, representing objects, counting forwards and backwards, counting one more and one less and comparing and ordering numbers. 



This term we will be introducing animals including humans, looking at parts of the body and the different senses we use. We will also begin looking at different seasons and seaosnal change, starting with Autumn, 

P.E. and Swimming

1M will be swimming on a Wednesday in the first half of the Autumn Term.


P.E kits are required to be worn to school on the day of your child’s P.E. lesson. The school P.E. kit consists of plain black shorts or joggers, a black sweatshirt or hoody and white t-shirt (with or without the school logo) and trainers. Please ensure that if your child wears earrings to school, these are either removed by the child themselves or taped up with tape provided from home. 


P.E. takes place on a Wednesday and a Thursday. Year 1 will need to wear their PE kits on a Wednesday for their indoor session if they are not swimming. If your child’s class is swimming on the Wednesday, they will need to come in school uniform and bring their swimming kit each week. On a Thursday, all three classes need to come to school in their P.E. kits.


We are very fortunate to have access to a swimming pool at Trinity,  and in Year 1 we feel that it is very important that children take advantage of this resource. Each class will swim for a whole half term to allow for longer swimming sessions. Each class will split into 2 groups and swim every week for one half term during PPA sessions. It is very important, therefore, that the children remember to bring their swimming kits to every session. All children must have an appropriate swimming kit and swimming hat. If, for any reason, your child is unable to take part in P.E. or swimming, a signed letter must be provided.
