Wales Class Autumn Term Timetable

Hello Wales Class!


Well that first half term went quick, it must have been because we were working so hard! You have made a super start to Year 1 and we are really proud of all the work you have done. We are looking forward to the second half of the Autumn half term, this is usually a busy half term but we think you are going to enjoy all the things we will be learning about.


As we start to learn a new set of sounds in phonics, reading is more important than ever so please try to read at home if you can and make sure your reading book is in school every day. 


Miss Shore and Mrs Carmichael


Our PE days for Wales Class  are Monday and Wednesday. Children should come into school in their PE kits on these days, ready for the lessons. Please name any kit and ensure children have trainers and suitable outdoor kit (such as a jumper or jacket). Tracksuits should be plain and dark in colour. Let us know if you need any help finding suitable PE kit. 


Forest School

You will be informed which half term your child will be doing forest schools. 

English - Autumn Term 2

Our English this half term will be based on the story 'Traction Man' by Mini Grey


Traction Man is here!

With an outfit for every occasion, he patrols the house saving toys, guarding toast, searching for lost wrecks and rescuing damsels in distress. Our hero is ready for anything… or is he?



Maths -wb 1st November 2021


For the last few weeks of this term we will be learning place value to 20. These are the areas we will be covering:

Our topic for Autumn 2

The Magic Toymaker! 



This half term we will be covering the IPC unit The Magic Toymaker. During this unit we will be learning about how toys come in many shapes and sizes. They are made of different materials but all are designed for us to have fun with, to learn new skills and to exercise our bodies and our imagination.






This half term we are starting phase 5 phonics. Children entering Phase Five are able to read and spell words containing adjacent consonants and some polysyllabic words. The purpose of this phase is for children to broaden their knowledge of graphemes and phonemes for use in reading and spelling. They will learn new graphemes and alternative pronunciations for these and graphemes they already know, where relevant. Some of the alternatives will already have been encountered in the high;-frequency words that have been taught. Children become quicker at recognising graphemes of more than one letter in words and at blending the phonemes they represent. When spelling words they will learn to choose the appropriate graphemes to represent phonemes and begin to build word specific knowledge of the spellings of words.
