Spring 2 Newsletter

Welcome back! Our theme this half term is ‘Sustainable Development’ and our key question is ‘Do I understand the origins of what I have?’. To support us with our learning we will be exploring Fairtrade and the Roald Dahl classic ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’. During Fairtrade fortnight, we will learn about fair-trade and celebrate the people that grow the food we eat. We will use ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ to explore the origin of chocolate and create a persuasive piece of writing encouraging Willy Wonka to use fair-trade chocolate to make his treats.

Year 1 Trip to the Lowry 6th December 2018

To support our learning of ‘Values and Perceptions’ next half term, Year 1 will be visiting The Lowry Theatre to watch the live show of ‘Stickman’ on Thursday 6th December 2018. This will be a fantastic and exciting opportunity for us and will support the children with their learning.

We will be travelling to and from The Lowry via the Metrolink. We will leave school at approximately 9.15am and walk to St Werburghs Metrolink stop; here we will get on to the Metrolink’s direct line to Media City. Once at Media City we will have a walk around Salford Quays and have our lunch. We will then attend the 1.30pm showing of ‘Stickman’ at the Lowry. Once the show is finished we will board the Metrolink and walk back to school. Please collect your child from the playground at the later time of 4pm.
