Dear Parents / Carers and Children,
Welcome to Year 1
Our Topic for this half term is ourselves where we will be focusing on our family and the history of our family. We will be talking about family trees and also our bodies in science. We will also be creating self portraits in art.
Please practise logging onto different websites at home that your child has access to. You will find these in the front of your child's diary.
