Pole To Pole Year 1 Autumn 1


Our new topic is 'Pole to Pole'

As part of our continued focus on mental health and wellbeing, the children will be learning about resillience. At the start of each week, the children are going to identify actions and targets that will help them to build their own resillience in and out of school.

Daily reflection time will allow the children to discuss their successes and challenges related to their resillience target. This will support the children to adopt a 'can do' attitude and develop the perseverance needed to be happy, successful learners. This will under pin all other aspects of the curriculum.

Maths, English and phonics lessons will continue to address gaps in learning. Over the next few weeks, other curriculum subjects will be gradually introduced to allow the children to practise their resillience targets.
