Autumn 2
This term our topic is 'Everyday Superheroes' we have been thinking about people in our community who help others and who save lives! 
We have had lots of visitors into school to tell us about their jobs - the RNLI came to talk to us about lifeboats and how they help to keep people safe at sea. We have had lots of parents in to talk to us including nurses, mountain rescuers and a firefighter! 
Autumn 1
We had an exciting parcel delivered to school from the zoo! They had sent us a pet! We tried to guess what animal they could have sent us. 
We will be focusing on the text 'Dear Zoo' this term. We have become amazing story tellers and we have begun creating our own version of the story. The children have already produced some fantastic writing and they have only just joined year one! We are working hard to remember capital letters, finger spaces and end marks. 
Please see below, our curriculum letter telling you about all the exciting things we will be doing this term.
End of topic celebration!
We ended our topic this term with a celebration 'Safari Day'! We all dressed up like we were going on an African safari. 
We started the day by turning the classroom into an aeroplane and flying to Tanzania. 
Later in the day we had a very exciting visit from Exmoor Zoo. They brought in some fantastic animals for us to see, including an owl and a meerkat! 
We ended our day by inviting the grown ups into class to listen to us perform the 'Dear Zoo' story and we read them the fabulous books we had written.
