Welcome Message:

Welcome to Year 1! We hope you had a lovely Winter break. We are looking forward to learning all about places around the world. 


Our Topic: 


Posting and Places

This unit is based on the idea of receiving and writing letters and emails with new friends from around the world. This will enable pupils to name and locate the world’s continents, and the countries of the UK. They will start to appreciate and understand similarities and differences between themselves/their home country with that of others, with a focus on one contrasting area - Ghana.
